Patrik is full of energy and concrete ideas which was very valuable. Despite a short schedule Patrik managed to structure, organize and roll-out one of Port of Gothenburg’s compliance projects, delivering the required technical and organizational activities with high quality. As a result we increased employee awareness, knowledge and ability to follow new organizational procedures. I appreciate Patrik’s efficiency to independently drive and follow through the project in a challenging context. Without a doubt, I confidently recommend Patrik for any management consultancy job needing positive energy, drive and ability to follow through.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Patrik for over 20 years, during which I have been his direct manager a large portion of the time. Above all, I am impressed with Patrik's ability to deliver projects on time, within budget and getting results way beyond expectations using his vast knowledge within continuous improvement. And, of course, his excellent people and facilitation skills in leading his teams and stakeholders.

"It is very rare to have the opportunity to report to a leader who is both a coach and mentor at same time but I did when working for Patrik.
It was a pleasure to work for him for three years at DHL Global Forwarding, when Patrik lead Sub-Regional Performance team for Sub-Saharan Africa.
I was always admiring Patrik's ability to command a room and get people on board with strategy, direction and ideas, even people who initially where on completely different pages.
When leaving meetings everybody felt we had a clear sense of direction, where moving into the future and being led by a very supportive and positive leader. Anyone would be lucky to have Patrik as a leader, mentor or coach."
