The Unreasonable Institute is proud to have Sandja Brügmann join as a New Unreasonable Mentor for her dedication to working with entrepreneurs creating bold social and environmental impact in the world.

Banks Benitez, Head of Global Expansion Unreasonable Group

Sandja and I both had the pleasure of speaking at a at a CSR conference in May 2017. Sandja's talk on Conscious Leadership was a mind-blowing experience to me and to the audience. Not only was the topic of great relevance to all leaders but Sandja's powerful and entertaining way of presenting was of great excellence. Right then and there I decided to invite Sandja to facilitate a central module in our Inclusive Leadership Program. Luckily she said yes. Sandja, I look very much forward to work with you. Thanks for joining our team!
