About me as a speaker
As a speaker, I tend to get the feedback that I´m an inspiring, yet very practical, speaker and lecturer.
Most often I speak for leaders in various organizations – about how to become better leaders for their organizations, for their people and for themselves.
I also speak quite a lot for various organizations, associations etc. on how to have, what I like to call, 360° Success, based on the principles of Self-Leadership.
Past speaking engagements
The number of presentations and lectures I have given for the past 15 years or so are in the hundreds. And for thousands of individuals.
My largest audience so far was about 350 people.
Usually, I give around 25-60 presentations and lectures a year, both in Icelandic and English. In Iceland and other countries.
Some of the titles of my presentations are: How to put The Human back into Human Resources Management, How To Be A Better Manager, Self-Leadership, 360° Leadership, Heart-Based Leadership and 360° Success.
What I have to offer as a speaker
My background, both my MBA and 18 years in the corporate world, doing Human Resources and Operations, holding VP and C-Suite positions, gives me a great foundation for my presentations and lectures.
It also gives me the insight needed, to make sure my presentations are motivating, practical and equipping my audiences with applicable ideas and tools.
