ABOUT OUR FOUNDER Katrin Sturm
From climbing the corporate ladder to successfully starting her own business.
Katrin Sturm is a leading start-up and scale-up advisor, growth and business mindset coach based in Dublin, Ireland, and the founder and CEO of The Best Possible You.
After being awarded a double degree in International Business, Katrin started out on a corporate career path.
She climbed the corporate ladder, moving into a management position in her late twenties.
Katrin had to learn fast and adapt, and by continuously working on her personal and professional development she found her way to success in multiple senior sales and leadership roles in international companies such as Salesforce and Oracle. She has also worked for companies like Airbus and DHL in the past.
Katrin initially gained valuable insight into logistics, quality and supply chain management in a manufacturing
and service-orientated environment, before moving into the IT industry when she relocated to Dublin, Ireland, in 2011, working with clients, companies partners across diverse sectors and of different sizes.
As a high-performer in individual contributor roles in business development, sales and account management roles, Katrin found herself going through several sales and solution selling training programmes.
She managed teams of up to 12 business developers and sales representatives in a tech (SaaS) business, successfully coaching her direct reports for career development and turning low performing teams into high achievers.
She is known for creating outstanding team spirit that helps her teams to be at their best and thrive professionally.
She always wanted to run her own business and when feeling the yearning to take on a new challenge in early 2018, she successfully took the leap to becoming a profitable entrepreneur.
She took a further step along her own growth journey with a professional coach, developed and packaged her own coaching skills, and then achieved her year-long goal of setting up her own business.
In 2015, Katrin became a certified Executive & Life Coach at the Positive Success Group in Dublin.
These skills and insights already helped her as a corporate sales leader to drive her team’s performance and career development further.
A passion for growing people and businesses
Katrin now combines her corporate experience in sales, leadership and people development in the high tech (SaaS) industry, with her passion for advising start-ups to grow into a scale-up and beyond, as well as coaching and mentoring executives and high-potential employees and founders.
One of her strengths is to get the best possible version out of people and to create a thriving spirit of 'millennial' teams with a proven business impact. This is also how the idea of The Best Possible You was born.
Her corporate roles have prepared her for several years to work with start-ups and SMEs by supporting them to grow and scale as an independent start-up advisor.
A native of Bavaria in Germany, Katrin has been living and working abroad in different countries including the UK, France and the Netherlands since 2006.
She has been living in Ireland since 2011, where the international tech hub Dublin is her home, but she frequently travels to Austria, Switzerland and Bavaria for some of her international clients.
In 2020, she successfully pivoted her business in the ‘new normal’ to serve her clients 100% online.
She is currently working on exciting plans to scale her business further in order to make an even bigger impact in people’s business, careers and life(styles) with her experience, expertise and The Best Possible You philosophy.
Being fluent in English, German and French, and a proven track record within an extensive network in Europe and beyond, makes her the right fit for any intercultural and international environments.
In order to get the best possible version out of herself, Katrin also puts a high value on the right body and mind balance. Trail running, hiking, surfing, reading, road tripping, yoga and doing agility with her dog Brody help her to be at her best.
Katrin knows and understands that the right balance can sometimes be challenging when caught up in a corporate environment and our dynamic world, so she runs Digital Detox Retreats and Online Programmes to recharge your body and mind, and create a digital detox routine for your personal wellbeing.
The Best Possible You continues to grow further with new programmes and online coaching services for driven companies, entrepreneurs and female leaders. Watch this space and follow us on social media for a glimpse beyond the scenes and any updates.
