Innovation and reliability have a history.

Ever since the days of our predecessor company, Dr. Fischhof Ges.m.b.H., founded in 1960 in Vienna, we have continually grown. Continuity and reliability have been as important to us as innovation and dynamics.

In the meantime, the steady growth of ti communication GmbH has moved the firm to the forefront as a leading service provider of intercultural training and coaching, with main offices in Regensburg and Vienna, representative offices in Shanghai and Zurich, and implementation sites all around the world.

The Consulting business division was added in 2012, rounding off our portfolio of services to include systemic human resources and organizational development
