In my own words
With my master’s degree from the College of Europe and my top-level inside experience of international leadership in Sweden’s Government Offices and the EU’s machinery, I can inspire and lead smart conversations to bring new insights to your audience. I use my broad knowledge and experience from having been a speaker myself on various panels to find what is not obvious, what gives new insights and a new perspective on the issue.
For me, it is an honour to have the opportunity to read-up on and master any new topic. Only by doing this is it possible to fully grasp the key points that participants highlight as a session develops, and thus be able to react swiftly, to briefly crystalise something particularly important, and then steer the debate back to the main question.
In bringing a high level of skill and professional experience to the role of moderator, I am aware of the need to meet the key requirements of any session, making sure that, within the time available, the conversation’s goal is reached, while also supporting all panel participants, before and during the session, so that they feel energised, and the discussion flows.
