Leadership Coach, Facilitator & Professional Speaker
I have a background in the hospitality industry where I developed a passion for people… and leadership development. Since 2001, I have coached and trained more than 500 people at all levels from shift managers to CEO’s. I am an active advocate of Action Learning, and I often include this in my programs.
An entrepreneur at heart, I started my first venture at the age of 26 where I developed four large restaurants in Copenhagen, as well as the first city-wide pizza delivery service. After ten years of hands-on management of a substantial business with 280 employees, I sold the thriving business and joined a consulting group.
I have traveled the world on consulting assignments developing individuals, teams, and organizations around the themes of leadership, performance improvement, and service innovation in more than 25 countries.
Two major long-term assignments stand out from that period:
- Building the European distribution network through acquisition and development for a Swiss IT manufacturer over a four-year period.
- Creating a 500+ person hospitality group starting from zero in Cape Town, South Africa, over a five-year period.
