„It’s your life — make it work.”
Katja Kerschgens’ path through life – she has been diagnosed with MS (multiple sclerosis) since 1994 – and her intrepid approach to the growing limitations makes her a signpost for all those who want to live their own lives and activate their personal PlanB.
Since 2001 she has been an independent rhetoric trainer, known as “DieRedenstrafferin”. Since then it trained and coached country widely thousands of participants from the most different industries in rhetoric and quick-wittedness. Over the years she has developed her mission against the abuse of lifetime from this cross-section of all target groups. Meanwhile she means the whole life, not only the moment of speaking.
Today, as a PlanBMentorin, she passionately supports her in leading her own life (again) in spite of strokes of fate, frustration or disappointments, and in letting her own PlanB emerge from unplanned plan changes – free, self-determined, worth living.
She has been a professional member of the German Speakers Association since 2010 and GSA mentor since 2017. She studied German language and literature, linguistics and phonetics in Cologne and now lives with her husband in the Hocheifel. For several years she worked as an editor and publishes books in various genres as an author.
She calls a spade a spade, gets to the heart of the matter and openly addresses the blind spots. Warning: Her optimism, her zest for life and her energy are contagious!
