Talkative, inquisitive, intuitive, emotional and a challenge lover, that’s me, Rahel Frischknecht. I’m part of Athena Wisdom Institute AG because my diverse attributes are acknowledged and appreciated by its team. Diversity, that’s exactly what Athena Wisdom Institute AG stands for and a vision I carry in my heart. Together with our team of global trainers I’m eager to expand and deepen my knowledge regarding personality development and leadership. My wish is to inspire and empower others to have the courage to be themselves.

LinkedIn profile

During my career I had the opportunity to work with many different people, from various backgrounds and cultures.
I have been always fascinated that we all learn in different ways.
But we all have in common, that we want to be sure we get something tangible out of things we learn.
Whether it concerns, knowledge, skills or our personality development.
Therefore, to me, it is important to make results of our education and training measurable to our customers.
I think, that will always be the marketer in me.
