Annemarie Steen’s Background
Being a lifelong learner, Annemarie is always exploring experiential ways to create transformative insights with impact for herself and others. She sees life as this infinite playground of possibility to explore, experience and create by following what sparks her natural curiosity and joy. What brings you joy?
Growing up in a rational high IQ family, where there was little room for creative and emotional expression, she discovered a way to do this through acting and improvisation. This even resulted in playing several roles in TV-series from the age of 13, including a leading role in a German TV movie “Moffengriet” awarded DAG Fernsehpreis (1990) and a role in a popular womens prison series “Vrouwenvleugel” (1994). Because it was never her intention to become a professional actress, she decided to embark on a new adventure as a self-employed corporate trainer (after finishing Mediastudies and being a tourleader in India and Nepal for 2 years).
Now, with 20+ years of experience in the professional training business, she has realized that truly transformative learningexperiences always involve taking action, an emotional respons and reflection. – We don’t learn from experience, but from reflecting on our experience –
