About us

Julia Reis Consulting serves as an in-house consultant on-demand and interim manager with particular expertise in People, Projects, and Productivity.

We function as your flexible sparring partner, consultant or interim manager - depending on your needs.
In doing so, we support you in all questions concerning corporate growth, leadership, and people strategy.
The core of our service is a classical freelancing collaboration - in most cases with Julia.
Beyond that, we include other team members whenever it makes sense from a client perspective to reach the best results.

Every company and every person is unique. We'll work closely with you (including hands-on implementation work), cultivate an authentic and trustful relationship, and tailor our offer and methodology to your specific needs to provide the best possible value.

We have a focus on start-ups, venture capital, company builders and the digital industry, but we also work regularly with SMEs who are open for change and innovative approaches.

One of the best compliments we received from our clients so far, was that we completely changed their views on "consultants" (from the rather negative stereotype to a true value-add and trusted partner).

Our Team

Julia Reis -
Founder and Chief Consultant

Before becoming a freelance consultant in April 2019, Julia was in charge of the business division of HR Consulting at i-potentials, an HR strategy consultancy focusing on digital business models. In previous positions she worked as Senior Consultant for the leading international strategy consultancy Oliver Wyman, focusing on organisational design and Project Management Office (PMO).

Originally, she studied history and politics as well as public policy in York, Berlin and Washington and was able to gain professional experience in all three sectors (public, non-profit, and private). This is one of the reasons for her flexibility in interacting with various industries and groups of people.

Julia is a certified Reiss Motivation Profile® Master as well as OKR Master and is currently completing a course to become a certified expert in labour law. Besides her mother tongue German, she speaks English fluently and has a good command of French and Hungarian.


Her way of working

Julia sees herself as a generalist and having a classic "T-shaped profile", with broad, basic knowledge in various business functions and methods. She has special expertise in human resources (in particular recruiting, performance management, and onboarding), organizational development, leadership, project management and tool use.

She draws from her experience as both a people manager and consultant, focusing on start-ups, other digital businesses, agencies, and non-profit organizations.

Her clients particularly value her honesty, quick thinking, focus on results, empathy and organizational talents as well as her good judgement and continuously high quality standards. Julia always acts as if it was her own company she is dealing with.

Our Values

Excellence coupled with pragmatism

  • We always strive for providing high-quality work to our clients and know that continuous learning is a pre-requisite for that.
  • Our clients and team members can count on our commitments.
  • We know when details matter - and when they don't.

Client value & flexibility

  • It is not our goal to maximize our short-term revenues but provide the most value for our clients. Ideally, you should be rather surprised that you didn't have to pay more.
  • While we care too much for our team members' well-being to sign "client first" in all situations, we still believe that it is part of our job to prioritize client needs whenever possible.

Honesty & authenticity

  • Even if it is sometimes difficult, we serve as honest and open sparring partners and consultants. We speak the (sometimes uncomfortable) truth.
  • We don't play a role but show our true selves.

Looking at the whole

  • While we have special expertise in certain areas, we like to see the big picture and move into other areas if needed.
  • We understand ourselves as
    T-shaped professionals.
"Follows the highest standards."
"Friendly but when needed strict communicator."
"Shows an honest interest in others and maintains a good balance of detail and pragmatism."
"Very sensitive to underlying dynamics. Has strong values and sticks to them."
