What is your consul­ting exper­tise?

13 years stra­tegy and opera­tions consul­ting expe­ri­ence from A.T. Kearney, Accen­ture, Bearing­Point and for the past 1.5 years as an inde­pen­dent consul­tant. I focus prima­rily on the COO agenda – from supply chain stra­tegy to lean/operational excel­lence trans­for­ma­tions – working across indu­stries, but with exten­sive expe­ri­ence in consumer goods/retail.

What moti­vates you to do your sport?

When I was young, animals in general were part of my life, and horses, in parti­cular, held my inte­rest from an early age. I had the privi­lege of living on a farm, so oppor­tu­nities for having my own horses were very good and already at a young age I started trai­ning and compe­ting with them. Driving is one of the most spec­ta­cular, adre­na­line-fuelled equestrian sports and an incredible display of fitness and stamina for both horse and driver. A full compe­ti­tion spans three days of compe­ti­tion (Dressage, Mara­thon and Cones) and can be done with one, two or four horses in front of the carriage. From age 15 to 19, I competed on the highest national level (and some inter­na­tional events as well) in horse driving with a pony pair. It prac­tically took all my spare time – in season I would train the horses 20-25 hours/week and in addi­tion handle all the stable chores, etc., that are also required when dealing with live animals. When I started studying at univer­sity, I had to prio­ri­tize and chose to focus on my studies, so I left my horses with my parents (my mother actually competed with them for a couple of years), but I still liked to keep informed about the sport. So I decided to sign up to become an autho­rised judge instead, and nowa­days I travel around Sweden and judge compe­ti­tions. It is a great way for me to be involved with the sport, and the time required is limited, so it ofers a good balance with my work, family and other inte­rests.

How does this relate to the consul­ting world?

For me it is more of a contrast to the consul­ting world, an oppor­tu­nity to spend time in a dife­rent envi­ron­ment.
