Guenter 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 solutionoriented 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, traveling, various sports (squash, scuba diving, etc.) and
staying up to date with new IT‐trends and technologies."
