About Us

From 1986 to 2005 Agnes worked as a consultant for McKinsey and other large consulting companies. In spring 2006 she collected all her years of experience in negotiation practice and published it in the book “Verhandeln nach Drehbuch” in collaboration with Dr. Peter Bräutigam.

With her own company Dr. Kunkel GmbH Agnes focuses on lectures, seminars and individual coaching about negotiation. Together with Prof. Dr. Rosemarie Nagel (a student of the Nobel laureate in Economics Prof. Dr. Reinhard Selten, Bonn) Agnes works scientifically in the field of negotiation research.

In the past 15 years she has worked together with her small trainer and consultant network as a trainer and coach in the area of ​​negotiation and leadership. Her clients range from global DAX companies to local medium-sized companies. Through her projects, she gained insights into many different industries, from the classic aerospace group, to jeans shopping in Bangladesh, to the millennial world of online start-ups.

Based on the current world situation and out of curiosity about how the Corona epidemic could change our world and what other people have to say about it, Agnes decided to start The 2023 Podcast – mankind will survive.
