About George Peterburs

When working with individuals, teams or groups George’s overall intention is to build resonance.

Resonance for the individual means to get in touch with inner strengths and core values and learning to trust one’s own resources. Resonance in an organisation means to create a space that allows all members to connect and link personal values with the team or group’s purpose.

George works as teacher, moderator, coach, advisor, author and speaker for human development, well-being and mindfulness. He has over 15 years of work experience, including with two large organisations Apple Inc. and Hoffmann-La Roche. George has worked in Ireland, the U.K., Germany and Switzerland. Since 2005 he has been living and working in Basel, Switzerland. He founded the resonance gmbh in 2016.

George’s aim is to inspire and empower people and organisations to personal and cultural growth and transformation.

Maria Volkmann

Maria loves bringing people together and encouraging mutual inspiration. Having completed her Bachelor’s in Philosophy, Politics and Economics, Maria is currently a Masters student at the University of St. Gallen where she studies Economics.

Combining her academic studies with her work at Resonance, Maria brings an independent and untainted view on work processes and routines in organisations. This makes it easy for her to think out of the box. Maria is frequently commended for her critical mind, always questioning the status quo. Challenging at times, Maria’s inputs lead people to rethink rules, habits and routines Her principles are best summarized as: “everybody counts, everybody has responsibility – within the team, organisation, and society.

Lutz Hempel

Lutz’s mission is to inspire, connect and move people, leaders, teams and organizations to develop more human, collaborative and innovative cultures. He and his fellows from Groovin’ Organization do that through vibrant sessions in large group events and leadership development programs as well as through resonating team journeys, workshops and trainings combining innovative arts-based (particularly music-based) concepts with systemic and mindful perspectives. Signature topics are (organizational) sound, groove, resonance and strategic improvisation which link to (co-)creativity, innovativeness, performance, agility and responsiveness. Clients include corporations, midsize and small champions and international conferences.

Lutz has a long experience in management consulting and a strong background in music and mindfulness. He holds an EMBA from the University of Strathclyde and a degree in international arts management and is a member of leading networks in arts & organization research and practice as well as in mindful economy and work.

Kerstin Thurma

Kerstin is passionate about helping people find their inner truth. Since she started this journey in 2004, she has encountered various scientific, spiritual, physical, and mental insights. Seminars, books, self-reflection, coaching and discussions continuously enrich her knowledge and experience. She is convinced that all of us carry a certain potential within themselves – like a seed that contains all that is necessary in order to become a beautiful flower or a tree. When we begin to open ourselves up to what there is and take responsibility for ourselves, we will unfold our potential and lead a fulfilling life.

After receiving her diploma in industrial engineering at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Kerstin worked at renowned companies (Daimler, Lufthansa, Unilever) in personnel and project management. Her methods are inspired by nonviolent communication by Marshall Rosenberg and the mindfulness philosophy. She finds the right approach to a person. Her vision is to be the spark that lights your flame of knowledge and development.
