...how a red neckerchief bonds a friendship...
Dominique Magdalene Stengl, born 1979 in Breslau and grew up in Kassel/Germany. She studied communication science and politics at the universities of Munich, Salzburg and Málaga.
After completing her studies, she began to work in an international management consulting company.
She still works as a business trainer in areas of leadership, sales and communication focusing on topics such as "influencing positively on others," "negotiating and persuading" as well as the topic of "type-appropriate communication" and whole brain thinking.
At her numerous seminars as an executive coach and facilitator, she realised how successful adult behaviour is determined by important early strategic decisions taken in childhood years.
She decided to pursue her passion for the "smallest" and write stories that are educational and fun for children as well as adults.
Dominique Stengl lives with her husband and her two sons in the Western Cape, South Africa.
We are happy to present our very much loved and shared new childrens book:
"Boy and Pig-cool and wild"
Liesl Leitner was born and raised in Johannesburg with one foot always firmly in the bush as the family spent most holidays on a farm in the Waterberg, Limpopo.
She studied communication studies at the University of the Witwatersrand and graduated at University of Johannesburg.
She worked in public relations and advertising as copy writer and accounts executive. During a period of freelance writing she made the decision to invest in a helicopter. After completing her pilots license she started a small aviation company, at which time she met her husband.
Together they moved to a farm in Limpopo where she dabbled in cattle farming, breeding Bonsmara, whilst starting a family. Later they moved to the Western Cape where she still plays a supporting role in their aviation business.
Liesl resides with her husband, two sons, two dogs and a horse in the Franschhoek Valley.
