I have always worked in professions that required a sense of service, sense of order, flexibility and an ability to handle various types of people and social situations. Early in my career, I did several seasons with My Travel / Thomas Cook as travel manager and conference manager. Through Marcus Evans Scandinavia, I worked as a senior delegate sales manager at international events to corporate executives around the worl,d and at SeaScape Tours I received international cruise ships in Stockholm as Assistant Operations Manager. I have an MBA from Stockholm University and practiced in Dubai, Australia and the Caribbean during my entrepreneurial and leadership training in tourism and events at the Tourism Academy in Örnsköldsvik.

I moved to Dubai in 2007 and worked with marketing, hotel contracting and sales to the Nordic region and Europe. I established contacts with travel agencies in the Nordic countries and exhibited at several international travel industry exhibitions. I was also responsible for new hotel contracts and negotiation with local partners in Dubai. After seeing the need for Scandinavian assistance down here for many of the groups I worked with, I started Clever Travel Consulting in 2008.
