About Verena Risse

I am a certified co-active professional coach (CPCC) with over 20 years of experience working with companies, top management, entrepreneurs and company owners across various cultures and countries.


My 2 passions belong to working with people on complex topics and to horses.


Therefore, I find it deeply rewarding that I can combine both in my work with clients by including the HorseDream concept. HorseDream is the world-leading company for horse-assisted leadership trainings all over the world.


On the private side: I am also an expatriate since 14 years having lived and worked in Arabia and Asia.  My husband is from Arabia and we have two children.


My professional and private experience crystallized 2 main topics for my coaching: cross-cultural learning and leadership. Both themes I know and practised well and I trust being a knowledgable and comprehending sparrings partner for my clients.


I have a degree in economics from Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms University, Bonn/Germany. My career started in banking with a focus on long term finance for mid-cap companies. I more and more specialized on equity financing advisory for companies venturing into new international markets. After the financial crisis, I decided to leave financing and instead to focus on my passions: Since 5 years, I offer professional coaching and recently I added equine assisted leadership Workshops. I currently live in Germany.
