About us

How can those affected by natural disasters and conflicts be helped? The desire to defuse crises through innovative approaches and effective proposals for solutions led to the founding of DAREconsulting in spring 2013. The experience gained from previous successful consultancy assignments in the field of humanitarian aid and development cooperation as well as social science and economic expertise form the strong foundation of DAREconsulting.

In the meantime, it is not only the increasing number of natural disasters and conflicts that necessitate the implementation of complex and innovative projects in the target countries. Migration and flight as well as the integration of skilled workers from abroad are also assuming ever greater social and economic importance in Germany. Since 2015, DAREconsulting has therefore also been a consulting agency for small and medium-sized enterprises, public institutions and municipalities and helps, among other things, by teaching intercultural skills and optimising human resources management for international professionals.

Our range of services has expanded in recent years, but our aspirations have remained the same: We have made it our mission to support you in your programmes by setting sustainable goals.

Trainer & Consultant

The most important insight I learned through my long lasting (inter-)-national work, is that resource management has to enable empowerment and not be varnished with expert knowledge. The use of national resources enables sustainability and the possibility to act on one’s own requirements.
