Why "Corporate Punk & Creative Nerd"?
The reason for this is simple: the corporate world has stagnated in a blur of "Wolf Of Wall Street" wannabes and sports analogies.
Although I'm part of the corporate world I aim to revolutionise it with a creative mindset and punk mentality. This means focusing on making businesses more successful but also a better place to work through consultancy as well as coaching for the benefit of the company, employees and the customer.
I grew up in Iceland and got passionate about my creative side early on but, funnily enough, was never that interested in business.
I worked a variety of jobs, including being an actor/writer/director for local theatres, modelling and delivering mail but when I got my first sales job I realised I'd gained a lot of transferable skills in my other roles that benefited me there.
Acting and playing music on stage got me comfortable with getting into a flow state to deliver the best version of me at any given time but also enabled me to take on some very exciting opportunities in public speaking.
After graduating college I continued my artistic ventures, worked with a few charities and got a job as a caretaker of people with special needs.
After 5 years working there I moved away from Iceland, seeking a change and got a job in tech sales. This quickly proved to be a niche I could thrive in so before long I was coaching others, managing teams and, eventually, coaching managers & running sales offices.
This has allowed me the chance to work with people from all over the world, working in offices across EMEA and NALA, helping some of the biggest technology companies in the world market and sell their products/services more effectively.
More recently I've been helping start-ups and mentoring professionals on a freelance basis and this is something I greatly enjoy so if you need help with anything I do or you need a speaker with a fresh perspective, reach out.
Whether you need a Devil's Advocate or Divine Intervention, I'll be there.
