I'm an experienced communication professional, specialized in corporate communication for companies in the IT sector. I worked in public relations at twago, a German based Internet freelancer platform, and managed the internal and external communication at Gossamer Threads, Inc., a Canadian web technology and hosting company.

My experience in external communication includes developing and realizing communication strategies for product releases and client communication, writing press releases, blog articles, proposals, and HTML newsletters, and organizing company events for client visits. I also successfully participated in several relevant business contests and organized talks and presence at relevant conferences and trade-fairs.
My internal communication experience includes organizing staff meetings and events, as well as setting up a Wordpress-based intranet which allows the staff to quickly find information about the company's HR policies and other company information. I also used the blog for updates on projects and office news.

I like to learn new skills and quickly adapt to new tasks and responsibilities. After a short introduction to HTML and WordPress I created mobile friendly HTML newsletters and managed a WordPress-based website, installing new plugins and making changes to the CSS layout, among others.

I also created this website myself (using CSS media queries) and the WordPress website which combines my interests in photography, travelling, and culture.

"It was great to have Stella in my PR team. Together with a colleague, they managed to get unbelievable PR coverage with 400+ clippings in relevant media in just 12 months. Clippings included some major German, European and worldwide newspapers such as The Times and #1 tech blog tech crunch. Besides writing great articles which the journalists used sometimes without any adaptions, Stella managed to organize and prepare several CEO-talks on major German startup conferences. Last but not least: we have been awarded several awards such as IT innovation prize which Stella prepared. You will be very happy to have Stella being part of your team. Trust me :)" -
