|"Sometimes one stands in one's own light and the necessary conviction to reach one's aims is missing. Then one does not exactly know what to do with one's abilities. Gabriele was recommended to me as a coach. Without knowing me, she instantly recognised through her strong intuition where my strenghts and potentials lie. The pragmatic development of a mid- and long-term career plan has already helped me very much. Gabriele also presented me with possibilities which had not yet come to my mind. I can recommend a coaching with Gabriele to all seekers out there because of her great sense for people and her professional and sympathetic being!"

|"Gabriele Arntz has the knack of being able to recognise her clients' potential within just a short time. She can reveal any issues which stand in the way of developing this and find possible solutions. Collaboration with Gabriele is extremely professional and effective while also being at a refreshingly human and personal level. Amongst other things, she has excellent contacts and knows how to utilise these in terms of her clients. Gabriele Arntz helped me and is still helping me to make progress in my profession as an actor and to realise my artistic projects."

|"In view of the sheer unbelievable number of possibilities how to design one's professional future, it is not that easy to keep abreast of all prospects - let alone to define one's own path. Gabriele Arntz was recommended to me by a friend. I was very impressed by the manner in which Gabriele Arntz asks targeted questions, how she supportively accompanies you on your path, and by doing so, how you find out exactly what your goals are, and how you can reach them. It is exceedingly exciting to find out exactly what potential is slumbering inside of oneself - which talent is just waiting to be set free. Gabriele Arntz has decisively helped me find my way through the jungle of possibilities - and once you have found your path, it is a lot easier to actually follow it!"

|"The coaching with Gabriele has brought me the new and necessary insight which is essential once in a while. Her approach and personality just fit perfectly! Thank you, Gabriele for giving me such a booster! I can highly recommend anybody – especially self employees in their first business years – to get coaching from Mrs. Arntz. These social and professional networks are exactly what we need if we want to persist."

|"From research I'd carried out for journalistic articles on the topics of guidance and coaching, I knew that this industry had a lot of guff in the form of jingles and supposed guarantees of success rather than much in the way of substance and that you have to beware of self-confessed experts who will just leave you out of pocket. So, I was accordingly sceptical when Gabriele Arntz was personally recommended to me. But I have to say that the manner in which she goes about her business is exactly how I imagine serious coaching to be - which doesn't include having to resign yourself to endless expensive guidance sessions. Sometimes an intense conversation and the opportunity to get some moral support again shortly after taking one step or another is often enough. And this is how it is with Gabriele Arntz. She has not only helped me to improve my self-marketing approach, she has also helped me find out how to make more of my work in a way that is down to me personally, in a manner that I can deal with without having to compromise myself. She didn't bring any pre-established concepts or formulae to the table. Instead it was her clear view and clever analysis which motivated me and gave me the encouragement needed to find my hidden potential and set aside my dread of unfamiliar challenges."

|"Gabriele Arntz helped me in making a very important decision; she saw where my strengths and weaknesses were, and we were on the same wavelength from the start - I knew I was in good hands with her. She gave me a great amount of support in everything. Once again, thank you so much. I have no qualms about recommending Gabriele Arntz to others - her coaching services are unique."

|"After 15 years of self-employment I arrived at a point where I could not see the forest from the trees, was full of doubt and could no longer see any meaning in what I was doing. Because of the trustful conversation with Gabriele Arntz, her clever questions and her distinct empathy we got to the essence as Gabriele understands to create an atmosphere in which one feels secure and lifted and can speak openly. She worked the switches so that I realised which steps were necessary to discover my persepctives as well as new paths. I am very grateful for that."

|"When you're self-employed it can be difficult at times to determine your own place. Where do I want to go? What are my goals and how can I realise them? The sessions with Gabriele Arntz have really helped me with these issues. Her approach impressed me thoroughly - she didn't show me my goals, instead she brought me to a stage where I could recognise and formulate them for myself. In the case of a possible implementation, she then gave me very definite advice and showed me that things which I may have considered utopian are actually within reach. This coaching has given me a real push, both in terms of myself and also my work as a designer and manufacturer of unique bags under the 'purplerose' label."
Bettina Hellbrügge-Grosselfinger, born in 1960, Wörthsee

|"Starting with a mixed-up pile of information and ideas, Gabriele Arntz helped me keep focused in expressing my thoughts with her acute sense of detail and her clear, natural organizational skills. I gained far more clarity in my own expectations, plans and assessment of my own opportunities during the process. Many thanks for your patience."

|"Gabriele Arntz has an amazing gift of thinking and feeling her way deep into someone else's situation in a very short time; she helps everyone that comes to her to find out 'which direction to gee up your horses in,' to use her own refreshing turn of phrase. I've yet to meet a more adept coach - everyone that has been to her has come out with gratitude and enthusiasm for her services. It's amazing how Gabriele can energize you with her thoroughly warm, sincere, positive and generous nature along with her great wealth of knowledge and ability in helping others, paving the way like a great guardian angel. I've gained many an insight from Gabriele Arntz in the many years I've worked with her, and I'm grateful to her from the bottom of my heart."

|"As a student in the first semester, one does not yet have clear perceptions where exactly one is headed. Gabriele Arntz has helped me to focus on which internships or which branches are right for me. My aims were concretised through creative brainstorming and objective analysis. The open and honest conversation was very helpful and inspiring. Her effort to support me was very impressive and I am very much looking forward to a future collaboration."

|"There are times when you're really glad to have a capable friend and agent at your side for those important decisions in life, to be one of those fortunate enough to know such a person to turn to for support at the right moment. I've known Gabriele Arntz for a number of years, and since our first work-related meeting, I knew I could reckon with her full understanding, and most importantly, mutual trust. Her intuitive and insightful approach gave me important advice that I could always use for orientation, advice that has taken me a long way - and yes, also in changing my career direction. Only a few hours of coaching were enough to make me realise my full capability and potential. Everything always seems so simple in the light of hindsight; I can only offer my warmest recommendations to Gabriele Arntz. She is a real superwoman that takes many a hurdle with as much ease as if there had not been any barrier there in the first place."

|"We have learnt from experience that you soon reach your limits if you manage yourself as a musician. For that reason, last year we started to search for an agency that can support us with management issues and also promote us. By the end of our first consultation we already knew that we had experienced a stroke of luck with Gabriele Arntz. Her competent approach to all our musical requirements immediately convinced us. Our piano duet project "Die Funtasten" is distinctive due to the combination of serious classical music and entertaining show inserts that mean we have more or less defined our own niche in musical terms. Gabriele was quick to recognize our position and together we prepared a plan for our future management needs. Thanks to her excellent connections in the business, she was able to establish a contact with cult producer Franz Wittenbrinck, who is working with us on our show plan. Gabriele has also arranged a professional management system for us."|
