We are ICKE Consult.

Inspired by purpose.

Strangely enough, we don’t like the term “consulting”, but we believe in purpose and we work hard to get you where you want to be.

Berlin, but no bullshit.

In many events, 80% of effects come from 20% of the causes. We have our strengths but also some weaknesses. We will keep it real, no matter what.

We love fun(d)raising.

We believe in sharing our experiences, but also our failures. We never stop learning and therefore we grow, just like you.
