Anna Maria Link is Head of Communications at adelphi. She leads the adelphi communications team and is responsible for the strategic and creative development in that area. Anna's expertise is in demand when customers or projects require skills in the areas of concept development, online communication (website editing, newsletters, content management and social media), video production, political communication, press relations and campaigns. She designs and moderates various training courses – online and analogue – for companies, municipalities, institutes and universities.
Anna was also responsible for press and public relations work as part of the Open Society Initiative. She has worked as an editor for various international editorial teams in both a journalistic context and in corporate communications. As a result, Anna has acquired a wealth of experience in the production of different content formats and is an expert in target group-oriented copywriting and editing.
Prior to joining adelphi, Anna held a position at the German Press Agency (dpa), where she was primarily responsible for the editorial work on “Embassy News” and “Germany Today”, two dpa services that provide customised news to German embassies and foreign media worldwide.
Anna gained experience in corporate communications during her time at the United Nations (UN). At the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), she took on responsibilities in internal and external communications, in social media, and in the production of numerous videos and articles. Beyond that position, she also gained practical experience at ARD, ProSieben, and Sat.1. Her work and studies have also led to her spending various longer-term stays in Australia, Costa Rica, Denmark, Spain, and the US.
Anna studied Journalism, Media and Globalisation on an international master's programme of the European Union at Aarhus Universitet, the University of Technology, Sydney, and the Universität Hamburg. Her master’s thesis dealt with the topic “Telling the truth? Journalistic verification practices in the case of foreign reporting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict”.
