Marlene studied arts and cultural management and has extensive experience in working in communications, marketing and organizing international exhibitions and events.
She worked in several museums and has also consulted several non profit organizations. Her thesis in leadership in museums was the first one ever done in German and got published. Marlene continued her studies in cultural diplomacy and deepened her understanding in cross cultural understanding. She also furthered her understanding in the arts as a catalyst for change. All this brought her in 2014 to IofC because it resonated with so many of her own interests.
She is also an author and writes fiction as well as non-fiction books. Her book ‘Invisible Doors’ highlights her interest in a deeper understanding of communication. She is living in Switzerland.
