Management & Creative Director

"Gimme fever!" – an inner fire for event planning and organisation characterises agency owner Renate Stelzl. As a lawyer and cultural manager, she knows how to juggle different worlds of thought. She pulls the strings (and there are many strings as her network is large) and has a special touch for untangling knots when they arise – that is, after she’s had her first cup of coffee. Despite 20 years of on-the-job experience she hasn’t lost her passion for cultural event management. It is a great thing when your heart still races at the thought of starting a new project!
