Professional development bio
With the start of a professional career all the way at the bottom as an offshore commercial diver, it has been a step by step journey of consistency in doing every task as best possible everyday.

Curiosity and willingness to try new things have been the source of my passion and drive to develop professionally and also pursue higher levels of education while still working full time.

My soft skills have been developed on top of a solid foundation of hard skills, allowing in depth understanding of operational, engineering and business aspects when analysing any new innovation.

After completing my MBA I also become more passionate about personal development and contributing to others growth, and there for now active in coaching, mentoring and public speaking engagements.

I am a practitioner; not an academic at heart; with ability to apply relevant theory to solve specific business and operational problems. During my ongoing PhD studies I have developed a special interest in the strategic management area of competitive advantage.

What I bring to the table ?
Team player
A diverse team can achieve amazing results, and contributing to increased performance of individual team members and the overall team has become a true passion for me. Developing strong interpersonal relationships, building a team culture where there are ´no stupid ideas´ and everyone is excited to contribute is very rewarding for me.
Being a hands on person, I ensure to interact as much as possible with all relevant parties to stay ahead of any issues and build report. Breaking down large or complex subjects into simple to understand visual content based presentation formats has become somewhat of a habit for me, as I see it eases transfer of information. I enjoy holding large presentations or leading meetings with a structured approach and ensuring active engagement from all participants.
Having worked in varied positions, a multitude of environments and cultures I have become very capable to fit in and quickly positively contribute. Dealing with various cultural challenges, language barriers and limited resources has my strengthen my persistence.
