FLAG GbR was founded in Munich in 2011 by Dorette Lochner  and Ludger Finken, both of whom previously spent many years working as independent consultants and trainers. The core of the FLAG team consists of 12 consultants and trainers with international experience, many of whom have worked together on a series of successful projects.

To maximise our effectiveness, we have pooled our wealth of experience, expertise and skills into dedicated, expert teams that inspire confidence in any project. This enables us to develop tailor-made strategies for efficient employee and organisational development, face-to-face and remote.
