Where did you work before this position?

For the most part of my career, I’ve been working with sales and business development. Wherever I’ve been I’ve been interested in how it all adds up. How does my part fit into the overall picture.

How and why did you enter the Connected Planning business?

 

About 6 years ago I saw an ad for the most exciting job I could imagine. It took about 1 week from my application to signing the contract. As a bonus, the first person to be introduced to was a friend for many years and my current colleague David.

What’s the most exciting part of your job?

It’s to be trusted to work in the most center of our client's business and share the experience we as a company have to improve productivity, quality, and collaboration.

What’s your most-used productivity hack?

Fail fast! Your environment will change all the time. The perfect solution today may be obsolete tomorrow. The faster you can re-evaluate, the better. Small improvements keep you on your toes to look for a better way.

Who inspires you?

I’m fortunate to say I´m inspired by my colleagues. We are all very different but share a common belief and passion. We spend a lot of time at work, so I´m thrilled to have the colleagues I have.

What’s the best book you’ve read?

Rich dad, poor dad (1997), about creating different income streams and thinking outside the box. It's about creating different income streams and thinking outside the box financially.

What’s your favorite movie?

The Game (1997) with Michael Douglas and Sean Penn. I love the surprise in the end.

(May: What surprise? Oh, now I have to see it!)

What show are you currently binge-watching

Elitstyrkans hemligheter, SAS – Who dares wins, Elitstyrkans hemligheter: Danmark, about the selection process to special forces. It's about the selection process for the Special Forces in the military. It's basically the same show only for different countries.

Are you a military man yourself?

Do you have any pets?

Boris, a black Portuguese water dog.

Bet it’s nice to have a walking buddy right now? 

Yes, he gets a lot of exercise. It’s good for him.

And for you as well I bet? 

Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?

I’m kind of nerdy when it comes to wine. My best vacations have been including grabbing a fist full of soil and talking to farmers about the rain this season. I already have a wine for every celebration for the next few years.

Do you make the wine yourself? 

No, I leave that to the professionals!

What’s something you’re proud of?

A very long time ago, I won a bronze medal in the Swedish championship in Taekwondo.

How many years have you done Taekwondo?

At that point, three years. Nowadays I have gone to another Martial Art so I am training kickboxing now.

So you’re going all Jackie Chan?

Haha, not really, but I like it!
