"I recommend Marit’s services to any company under-going a merger or changing their organization.She offers solid support when it comes to building teams that can work cross-border and cross-culturally, and is highly engaging, committed, passionate and knowledgeable. I worked with Marit in Nycomed for several years where she successfully trained the organization in cross culture and integration through the substantial mergers with Altana and Takeda representing very different management styles and cultures. When Targovax merged with the Finnish company Oncos it was natural to turn to Marit for support and training, starting with our new corporate culture and values. Marit has been essential in creating a basis for our culture that is a cornerstone for continuing to build Targovax in the coming years".
Gunnar Gårdemyr, CEO Targovax, Norway

All our employees, both in Norway and US, rate top evaluation scores for all the training, workshops and processes Marit has delivered. She is highly quality oriented, reliable and inspiring to work with.

"I found the training on culture by Marit to be very informative and so valuable to helping me understand the various cultures I am working with, all around Asia. She is extremely knowledgeable on this topic and the attendees rated it as one of the best trainings they have ever attended. She is engaging, has an easy style about her, and is able to bring out responses and elicit participation from the audience of many cultures, which in itself is a big challenge. But thanks to her deep understanding of the cultures she is dealing with, she not only makes everyone feel at ease, but also makes learning enjoyable, and so practical for all"
