What are your tips for success at Strategy&
  • Ask a lot of questions – you avoid misunderstandings and it shows interest and curiosity
  • Don’t be afraid to challenge your seniors – their hypotheses may be wrong and sometimes you have a smarter way to solve a problem
  • Proactively ask for feedback – and not only at the end of projects
  • Take time to get to know your colleagues – also beyond work – many of my colleagues from Strategy& have become close friends
  • Take time to work out – you will get it back and often it’s the place where you come up with great ideas
What is the most important thing you have learnt at Strategy&

Stakeholder management. In the end, our job is as much about coming up with clever results and recommendations as it is about getting buy-in for them.

What has been your most rewarding project to date

Managing an expansion case for a leading Nordic infrastructure operator. Strategy& teamed up with PwC’s infrastructure team to assess the potential of expanding into a new business area. It was an intense project working directly with the company’s CEO and management board. We assessed the market, competition, the company’s right to win and we built an extensive business case with different scenarios.

Beyond Strategy&

When not in the office I play tennis or squash, have a drink at a rooftop bar or spend time with my girlfriend and daughter.
