My general area of competence is internationalization of business. Many years of assisting Swedish companies in establishing and managing business abroad made me appreciate the complexity of international business development.

This determined my advisory focus – development of culturally competent leaders able to interact with complex cross-cultural business environments. My clients are international companies facing challenges related to business internationalization – such as post-merger integration, managing foreign personnel, developing culture-sensitive processes and structures. I actively work with executive relocation, train and coach expatriate managers to better performance while on international assignments.


Since 2007, I cooperate with Aperian Global, a global consulting, training, and web tools firm, expert in facilitating talent development and business transformation across borders, as a country specialist and GlobeSmart advisor for Eastern Europe and Sweden.

The recent years have brought corporate sustainability in clear focus. 2009-2011 I worked as a program director for the Swedish Institute Management Program on CSR and sustainability. At the moment I am an acting academic director for an MBA program in corporate sustainability at a Russian finance university.


Developing business leaders I use a number of premier tools for leadership transformation, such as


- The Harthill Leadership Development Profile (LDP), and

- CQ ('cultural intelligence') Multi-Rater Assessment developed by Cultural Intelligence Center (CQC)


I am now developing Intelligent Mindsets - a cooperation platform for leadership development facilitators. I mainly live in Sweden, but share my time between countries around the Baltic Sea, and Central and Eastern Europe.


I hold an international MBA degree in general management from the Stockholm School of Economics, Sweden.


Happily married to Anders and have two wonderful kids - Alexandra 'Sasha', 18, and Mishka, 10. Singing in a local chamber choir gives me pleasure and lots of development opportunities.
