Part of the PANTARHEI team since 2019, Laura Estl is a consultant based in Vienna. Her stand-out skill is holistic problem solving, which in part reflects her diversified academic and professional background. Her academic career has taken her to Vienna, Jerusalem and Hamburg, with an emphasis on international development, non-profit management and leadership, and peace and security studies. Laura has spent the majority of her career working for public institutions in Austria, including the federal parliament, where she served as a special advisor to the second Eurofighter Enquiry Committee, as well as the Ministry of Defence and various research institutes – all of which has helped her to develop the tactful approach required to deal with political issues.
Her focus is on strategic communication, public affairs and risk management. Laura particularly enjoys working with her teams to develop strategic concepts and storylines and navigate regulatory frameworks.
