Gertraud is an international HR professional, career strategist and coach. She is Austrian by birth, lived and worked as an expat in Africa and currently in Jamaica. Gertraud is an expert in international recruitment, talent acquisition, executive search and transition coaching. In Ethiopia, she was managing the country’s leading HR Consultancy, worked as only expat among the local team and fostered the restructuring of the organization. During her tenure, the organization won the ‘Outstanding Supplier Award’ of a global garment manufacturing company and top investor in the country. Working and living in VUCA markets has shaped her leadership skills, resilience and certainly her appetite for adventure. Currently, she works for a global executive search network and connects organizations across the world to elaborate growth and mutual synergies. As a coach, she is passionate to support female expatriates to overcome challenges when starting a new leadership role in a new country and culture, during the assignment or repatriation, so they feel focused, energised and have a positive mindset. She coaches in English and German. She was inspired by so many women she met and worked with along the last years, so she felt a need to specifically support high achieving expat women on their mission and help them discover how they can maximize their impact, have more time and more energy. She recently got married in the Austrian vineyards and started her C-level role as expat mum as of June 2018.
