About Us

We love People & Tech.

We are DeepSkill – your experts for emotional intelligence training. We empower high potentials & young leaders to create a culture where great people love to work. 

Let's Grow Deep!

Our Vision & Mission

Companies use digital transformation as a growth accelerator. The role of AI is becoming increasingly important: in analysis, for data processing and automation. And the role of man? As well! Because companies need people for leadership, emotional connection, depth and creative ideas. No human wants to be a worse robot. And he doesn’t have to, if he can be a stronger person – by further developing his emotional skills. 

We want to create a working environment in which everyone can develop their full potential. In a meaningful job. For a common goal. A business world in which everyone feels valued, thinks in terms of cooperation and behaves emotionally intelligently. We want to create a business world that offers deep, personal development for all of us. In an environment of lifelong learning that helps us to be happier people, better leaders and stronger people. 

To achieve this, we empower the people in the company. Through the profound power of emotional skills. Helping them to get the best out of themselves and their environment. We train these skills in tailor-made learning and coaching programs on our innovative Growth Hub learning platform. 

Our Team

Our team consists of experienced coaches, HR-developers and digital experts. We are united by our passion for deep skills, personal development and technology – and our common goal: to establish a people-centric leadership culture in companies and to actively help shape a more humane working world.

C-Level meets Street Credibility

Miriam Mertens was Telekom Vice President and Peter Goeke made it into the German singles charts as a rock singer and songwriter before they both founded their rapidly growing learning platform together. With their Deep Skills, they take Emotional Intelligence out of the “throwing a ball around” group room and bring it into the middle of society as a hard-hitting and powerful success strategy. They want to talk about that and much more. Gladly with you!
