The future

- is something we can shape

 

 

Economics - how to set conditions for economic growth and fruitful disruption, enhance ability and become more productive as a society.

Strategy - how organisations and companies can position themselves to develop and grow in constructive dialogue with the surrounding society.

Who I am ...

I have 20 years of experience working with economics and strategy.

After graduating and some years at the Ministry of Finance in Denmark, I joined the OECD in Paris, working for ten years mostly in the Economics Department covering Nordic countries and the UK. I also worked on tax, environment, labour markets, human capital and health economics.

From 2011 to 2017, I served as Deputy Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Business and Growth in Denmark, leading the preparation of reforms to promote productivity and growth including in sectors such as energy, lifescience and urban economics - often based on advice from commissions involving close collaboration with leading CEOs. 

Since May 2018, I have been a Member of the Board of Directors of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) based in London, UK.

What else I do ...

Like professional board members in the private sector, I have  certain private activities - in accordance with the EBRD's code of conduct. 

I offer advice on corporate strategy and on policies to promote economic growth. I base my advice on constantly taking part in a global dialogue, collaborating with institutions such as the World Economic Forum and colleagues around the world.

You can follow my commentary on current economic issues every two weeks in the Danish business paper Børsen, on Twitter and occassionally in international media. I am also available for moderating conferences.
