Professionally, Verena Wanker worked in various HR positions, primarily in personnel and organizational development and, depending on her numerous qualifications, later also as a manager.

Her work at CONTUR focuses on change management, organizational development, coaching on leadership and training, as well as coaching on stress management and burnout prevention. Already after graduating from high school and during her studies Verena Wankerl was abroad for longer periods of time, but also for her professional activities she was on assignment on different continents.
As a balance to her job and to recharge her batteries, Verena Wankerl likes to do yoga, go running or to the sauna. She also enjoys going to the North Sea.
