Niko von der Lühe


For many years now, I have worked for organizations involved in cooperation in the spirit of development, for private-sector enterprises, and for institutions of higher learning. My longest surviving relationship with a client extends back more than two decades. In our collaboration, I continuously support processes of change in the organization and so, little by little, bring my complete performance spectrum to bear. Responding to clients’ commissions, I have been active in many parts of the world, in almost all European countries (where German, English or French is the lingua franca). My activities extend to include southeastern Europe, Asia (PR China, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Myanmar, North Korea, Pakistan), and many nations in Africa (including Algeria, Ethiopia, Kenya, Cameroon, D. R. of the Congo, Mali, Morocco, Senegal, Uganda).
