As a manager I act on opportunities and alternatives & implement them.


Juliane shows strong people leadership skills. Her open mind for alternative and state of the art people management methods combined with Julianes positive mindset and ability to give constructive feedback, supports the individual development of her employees and colleagues alike. Additionally I was very impressed by Julianes approach to improve the Agile capabilities within Zurich Switzerland, especially the trustful and sensitive handling of the topic combined with creating high transparency about the facts.

I had the privilege of working with Juliane at Manjushri Di-Chen Buddhist Learning Center, a Buddhist monastery in Nepal. While there, I learned Juliane is a person with an amazing work ethic and management and administrative skills. She approaches all of her projects with compassion, determination, and innovative solutions to the issues she addresses. Juliane was able to produce ideas that created long-lasting, sustainable change at the monastery while remaining culturally sensitive.

Working for more than 2 years now in Juliane’s Group of Project Managers, I’ve got to know her as a very committed manager, always pushing the company forward in the area of PM. Her outstanding communication- and social skills allowed her to achieve a lot of improvements where other managers failed before her. As my personal manager, I made countless good experiences, and I can recommend her with all my heart.

A few people have this “just-right-mix” to be called a true empathic, agile entrepreneur – Juliane is clearly one outstanding person of such calibre.
Our working relationship was very enriching and mutually fruitful. I was particularly impressed by Juliane’s ability to show empathy with very different people and adjusting herself to make her communication and actions meaningful to others.
Otto Hieb, Senior Manager Financial Services, PWC Digital Services, Switzerland
Working with Juliane Kaestner was always a pleasure as she is very customer minded and has excellent negociation skills. Reaching her goals has a high priority for her and making her customer happy is one of her top priorities. Our whole collaboration was based on trust and respect as well as very professional approach on how to handle issues and problems which always pop up in highly complex e-commerce and ICT projects.
It is a thin line you walk on as a project manager and business unit leader to fulfil the needs of your customer while following and reaching your corporate goals. Project managers and business unit leaders who know how to handle these situations are very rare, Juliane is one of them.
