My key-competencies are anchored in four complementary fields.
I studied intercultural relations and obtained my Masters in Portland, at the Intercultural Communication Institute, in partnership with Antioch University (Ohio). But it is by working with people from many different cultures that I started to better understand the challenges and beauties of mutual understanding across cultures.
The challenges of interreligious dialog have become clearer through my MAS studies at the Salzburg University, in partnership with Lassalle-Haus in Bad Schönbrunn and Romero Haus in Luzern.
In South Africa I met Anne Hope and Training for Transformation, a participatory training approach for community development. I was extremely privileged to work with Anne, one of the best specialists in this method. Training for Transformation influences my way of working with groups in deep ways.
It is also in South Africa that I discovered the concept of Ubuntu, embodied by Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. In 1999 the famous Archbishop of Cape Town reminded all of us that «Umtu ungumtu ngabantu – I am human because you are human ». He invited us to put goodness and shared humanity at the core of our interactions. Ubuntu inspires the name of this site, and beyond it, my whole professional commitment..
The services of ubuntu communication are mostly connected to one or all of the above fields. They are offered to a large variety de clients, always tailor made, according to the client’s situation and needs.
