PATRICIA SEEMAN

25 years ago Dr. Seemann left the Operating Room for

the Board Room. In Switzerland she’s been dubbed ‘Sturmerprobte Chirurgin für Unternehmen’ the ‘Storm-Tested Surgeon for Business.’

 Patricia’s specialty is working with CEOs on their “wicked problems”.  Those that are are deeply entangled with other problems; defy clear definition and have no known solutions. Attempts to solve them have unintended consequences, and as you try to deal with them they morph. Think of strategy balancing the short and long term, reputation, innovation and organizational culture. It’s daunting, to say the least.
Patricia is an eclectic and creative thinker who gets “in the ring” to build a culture of learning, experimentation and design. 

She holds a Doctorate of Medicine from the University of Heidelberg and has served as a CEO herself, has worked in medicine and corporate finance.
