- as a passionate European, he acts beyond national thinking,
- as an industrial engineer he works on D&I both holistically and in detail
- as an innovator, he constantly challenges assumptions, the status quo and obvious solutions
With his research-based knowledge, out-of-the-box thinking and in his international context, Michael Stuber advises leading companies in shaping their business strategies and organisational identities by leveraging D&I. For this purpose, he develops comprehensive change strategies and concepts to embed D&I in the core elements of the organisation.
