Günter Lukas says:

"My motto is to support people and organizations in developing their potential by activating and developing previously hidden resources. This can be achieved with practical and solution-oriented concepts that are tailored to customer needs – based on a spirit of partnership and mutual trust, where also humor may play an important role.

My private interests are: my family, travelling, riding my motorbike and various sports (squash, scuba diving, etc.)".
