As Global Strategist and Sparring Partner, I'll get your organization ready for the future and establish true sustainability - for your business, for people, and for the planet.
The world has become more complex, more uncertain and sometimes chaotic or even incomprehensible. The speed of change is now faster than at any other time in human history. And, the disruption fueled by digitalization is upending entire industries, calling business models into question, if not rendering them fully obsolete. Clearly, the future is not what it used to be.
Looking forward, what can we expect? The question to end all questions, and one I first began grappling with back in 2005 in my first Strategic Foresight project. Since then, I have been involved with the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies (CIFS), exploring and studying the future, observing and analyzing the trends, and mastering the tools that support the foresight process.
As Global Strategist, I know from experience how to leverage Strategic Foresight to turn a «conventional» strategy into one that is future ready. I also bring the tools that infuse future-readiness into your downstream processes – from strategy development, kick-off and implementation all the way through to the plan-to-perform process and the organization of Finance & GBS.
In the role of a Sparring Partner, I guide entrepreneurs, international companies, C-level managements, and corporate boards through the process of making their business future ready and achieving true sustainability in all three dimensions – people, planet, and business.
All this is no rocket science - I know how, I have done it, successfully and many times over.
I am a passionate Young Entrepreneur and Global Strategist who has profited from a rich 30-year «apprenticeship» at IKEA – arguably the sustainably most successful global retail company in the world – eagerly learning the ins and outs of global business. Now I am ready to pursue my vocation and bring my knowledge, experience, and passion to the free market.
As a Swiss-Polish dual citizen with decades of international management and board experience under my belt, I’ve served in Poland, Japan, the Netherlands, Russia, Denmark, China, and the US.
Open to new ideas, keeping a sharp eye on the latest technological advances, tolerant and respectful – that’s my approach when I work with businesses. I am firmly convinced that the future holds far more opportunities than threats. Let’s harness them.
