My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive: and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style."
- Maya Angelou

Carol Aebi

A Swiss female advisory consultant based in the capital city of Bern Switzerland.

For more than 15 years, I have bridged academia, business, and technology to uncover new opportunities for mutual advancement and develop existing ones. I facilitate broad, fruitful collaboration among leading experts in disparate fields to architect synergies that support the advancement of business goals and the public good.

I believe that innovation requires both a welcoming space for creative expression and authentic communication, and the persistence needed to breathe life into our best ideas with concrete, resolute action.

Change is more than an event. It is a mode of being, a mode that most organizations are reluctant to adopt. Let’s embrace change together and make great things happen.



Core Values

Integrity: Leading with integrity and fortitude is how I create lasting success. I take on the responsibility to create win-win strategies that benefit all stakeholders.

Wisdom: Wisdom can be gained by immersing ourselves into a situation and topic. Research, reflection and the intuition harness a power from experience to shape foresight. I work toward enhanced synergy with our partners, customers, market, solutions and systems.

Artistry: Creativity, imagination, and bold innovation are all cornerstones of business longevity. I bring forward ideas through a path to discovery, in an environment where diversity and ingenuity are encouraged and valued.

Dignity: I strive to model dignity, grace, and sincerity and to build a foundation of mutual trust and respect throughout my interactions.

It is a pleasure to bring people and ideas together across a broad, trusted, and international network driven by academics, experts, creators, and industry leaders.

With established connections and resources in place, we can grow and learn from each other’s experiences, share best practices, and draw upon the thought leadership of those who have blazed the trail before us.


Those we cherish and the places we live make an imprint on who we become. We all have our own story that shapes our minds, our hearts, and our personalities. My story is built upon memorable childhood influences from time spent in the international big-city of Chicago, weekends working on my grandparents’ farm, and years raising my family in the beautiful mountains of Colorado before moving to Switzerland in 2005. These experiences have had an undeniable hand in shaping who I am today, my diligent work ethic, and how I relate with people.


As an abstract oil painter from 2001-2006, my work was presented in exhibitions across New York City, Greece, Italy, Brazil, Denver, and St. Thomas. Although I am no longer formally showcasing my art, I hold a deep appreciation for artistic expression and innovative design. My creative past has given me the insights to think outside the box, and to see things not just as black and white, but as constantly open to new perspectives and interpretation.


Traveling that includes cultural immersion and exploration “off the beaten path” brings to life new discoveries and inspirations. Travel has given me gifts that I use every day in my personal and professional life, including flexibility and a deeper understanding of global cultures, and traditions. I am enchanted by the variety of life experiences, perspectives, and philosophies, and am grateful for those who have opened my eyes amid these adventures.
