Jan Schmidt

Jan Schmidt holds a PhD in Humanities, is the leading founder of the WWU Graduate Center at the University of Münster and offers a variety of trainings across Germany.


As a trainer, I carefully balance my two roles: On the one hand, I ensure that you can learn from my expertise and experience and on the other, I engage everyone in actively contributing to the learning experience. My approach is to mindfully weave your expert knowledge, experience and questions into the workshop while keeping it focused and entertaining.
