Welcoming New Member Uwe Heiss

Umbrex is pleased to welcome Uwe Heiss with Heiss-Advice. A summary of Uwe’s experience follows.

“Work with me and get access the skills and experience I developed over 20 years in strategic management consulting and healthcare entrepreneurship. Having started out with McKinsey and The Boston Consulting Group, my professional work today is grounded in a dedicated coaching practice, which enables me to approach my engagements starting with a personal relationship. I’m looking forward to speaking with you about your needs and challenges.

Executive Coaching
I am very familiar with the world of CEOs. I know C-level challenges and priorities from my work at McKinsey Berlin, BCG Zurich, and Roland Berger New York City. My monastic meditation practice in the mountain forest of Vermont offers a complementary perspective that can be hard to obtain when you are in the CEO seat. I treat my executive clients as trusted peers and friends. We engage in individual sessions at a fee that we explore together. Let’s talk about what is on your agenda and we’ll devise a tailored plan that accommodates and challenges where you are at.

Organizational Change
I have led international projects weaving organizations together in Post Merger Integrations comprising more 80,000 employees, taking into account different cultures, organizational structures, processes, and systems. We reduced the time-to-market of new drugs with Process Redesign, and rescued a failed international blockbuster with a Product Relaunch. Today I use the same methods and rigor with a more comprehensive perspective that emphasizes employee well-being during difficult organizational transformations.

Healthcare Strategy & Products
My pioneering health apps were called “the future of health care” (Physician’s Practice Journal, CNN, Fast Company, HealthLine) for chronic pain, IBS, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, and autism. My team developed patient reported research & care portals used by leading academic medical centers. Our mindfulness app was validated by randomized controlled trial (PNAS). I launched the first commercially available ethical placebo, Zeebo®, used in combination with an app to optimize placebo effects (published in Nature, Pain).
