Beate Bruns, born in 1964, studied philosophy, physics and mathematics in Munich and Karlsruhe and earned her master in philosophy at the Hochschule für Philosophie S.J. in Munich. At the end of her studies in 1989 she opted against university and for a professional career in a private enterprise. Bruns worked as a trainer and consultant and later manager for training and personnel development. In 1999 she founded the privately owned time4you GmbH together with her business partner. Bruns supports organisations to develop digital instruments and solutions for training, knowledge management and people development. She is author and publisher of several books and articles on digital learning and development.
“How people learn and how they learn in a better way, fascinates me since quite a long time. Because I am also very interested in science and technology, I am eager to know how digital tools can facilitate learning and sometimes provide even better learning opportunities than conventional classroom training. We learn so much by experimenting and checking what works and what does not work in an ongoing continuous evolutionary process. As an entrepreneur I love to bring theoretical considerations and ideas into existence!”
