About me

Michael Schmitz

Michael Peter Schmitz, born 1957 in Düsseldorf,

married, two daughters

I offer consulting services for small and medium-sized companies. A high level of identification with the people involved, the company and the company's goals is important to me. 

My approach is pragmatic - without pre-made concepts, complex as-is analyzes (with results that you have known for a long time) and without time-consuming presentations. 

Respect for the people and the culture of a company are important basics for me to develop individual and suitable solutions. 

I do not leave my client alone with the implementation of proposed solutions: I am happy to take responsibility for the successful implementation and integration of the concepts. 


Characterized by practical entrepreneurial activity in Germany, Belgium, Brazil, Dubai, France, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain and the USA. 

Goal orientation, strength of action and enthusiasm are my success factors.


High identification with my client, respect for the performance of the entrepreneur and his employees.
