Sandja Brügmann, Founder & Managing Partner The Passion Institute, and your leadership transformation facilitator

I first met Sandja at Sustainable Brands in Copenhagen some years ago where we were both speaking. I've been really impressed with her understanding of the challenges of conscious leadership and her conscientious and kind approach to supporting people through change. Sandja has a unique approach to guiding business leaders who are choosing to step up to tackle global challenges in a purposeful and conscious way. Whether they are startups or global brands, her unusual combination of communications and strategy, combined with a true sensitivity to the issues of leadership in a complex world, she is able to hold space for them as a trusted adviser.
