My mission is to help teams create innovative products that truly matter, driving increased customer satisfaction and business success. Drawing from my extensive experience working with clients such as Allianz, Burda, Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Telekom, Dr. Oetker, ERGO, Hanseatic Bank, OTTO, Porsche, Red Bull and Siemens, I understand the intricacies of various industries and can tailor strategies accordingly.

“Innovation is a superior performance in competition that is perceived as such by customers and cannot be quickly imitated by competitors.” — Joseph Schumpeter

I’m passionate about empowering individuals and organizations to achieve meaningful growth through user-centered product management and fostering open, collaborative cultures. With over 15 years of experience in the mobile and digital industry, including founding and joining startups and immersing myself in the vibrant ecosystem of Silicon Valley, I bring a wealth of insights to every coaching session and consulting project.

Having studied Innovation and Technology Management at the Technical University of Berlin, I’ve honed my skills in understanding and driving innovation in diverse environments.

By fostering an open culture where every voice is heard, I believe we can unlock the full potential of teams and organizations. By working with me, companies can expect to see tangible outcomes such as higher employee engagement and retention. Research consistently shows that organizations with open and inclusive cultures experience greater employee loyalty and commitment from their employees, leading to improved productivity and long-term success.

„A healthy company culture encourages people to share bad news. A company that discusses its problems freely and openly can quickly solve them. A company that covers up its problems frustrates everyone involved.“ — Ben Horowitz

Outside of work, I’m a devoted music enthusiast and avid cook, which inspired me to launch my YouTube channel @tanersfunkkitchen. Join me on a journey of discovery as we explore the intersection of music, food, and creativity.

I’m always eager to connect with fellow innovators, so feel free to reach out for a chat or explore my content. Let’s create meaningful change together and enjoy the journey along the way. Cheers!
