Professional background

Intercultural leadership expert & East-West expat coach

How I work

Whether your office (home-office couch) is in Stockholm, Shanghai or Seattle, some of your expertise will get lost in translation as soon as you start doing business with foreigners. For the last 20 years, I have helped executives, entrepreneurs, academics and artists build intercultural self-awareness, skills and successful new habits.
