unicen is a boutique consulting and coaching company. We present and represent a network of highly experienced individuals who are passionate about what they do, and are both personal and professional in their approach. Emma and Andreas run the unicen platform, bringing together teams with the personalities, background and qualifications you need.



Each member of our unique network possesses broad qualifications and has gained extensive experience in their individual field of expertise.
Our organisational set-up enables us flexibility and agility in providing you with the competencies that fulfil your requirements. Here is a selection of our long-term partners.


In our approach we carefully and systematically clarify the direction your intentions are to take using a variety of sound methodologies. Our aim is to work in unison with you to deliver the (not always obvious) solution you need and that will enable advancement. The assignments we take on are those we are confident we can fulfil.

In our consulting we endeavour to facilitate solution finding processes and activate your internal resources. In doing so, and in the mid-term, we make ourselves superfluous. It is our strong belief that organisations have both the ability and capacity to pursue their goals independently. We understand our role as an initiator, a source of starting your future.

Our coaching serves to provide you with an independent and professional sparring partner. The approach we take supports you in developing new perspectives and getting in touch with your own strengths. Coaching creates space for reflexion… and together we pave the way forward.


Our Work

The services we offer start with strategy development and go on to include change, integration and communication management, also the development of culture, leadership and people. The focus of our work is primarily on the intangible factors that are challenging to manage but crucial for success. As is always the case with coaching.


unicen supports organisations and their management in developing and adapting their strategy. We create space for reflection and facilitate the conversations required to give direction. Through this process the objectives to be reached, and how they are to be achieved, becomes clear.
