About

I’m a communication advisor and consultant, working with B2B large caps and executives primarily.

I’m also the co-founder of Wichmann/Schmidt, a creative agency based in Copenhagen, Denmark. In Wichmann/Schmidt, we do strategy, content and media for clients within telecom, finance, transportation, media and professional services.

Additionally, I’m a member of World Economic Forum‘s Expert Network.

Background
From 2011-13, I was the Head of Social Media at Maersk Line, helping the shipping giant embark on social media and social business. Read this interview McKinsey did with me about the project.

I have a background as copywriter, videographer and concept developer at a digital agency based in Copenhagen. Prior to that I was a writer for Weekendavisen, a Danish weekly.

I hold a MA in Literature from University of Copenhagen and am the author of “Leth og kedsomheden” (2008), a book about boredom.

Here’s a few other pieces written about me – in Forbes, Harvard Business Review, Politiken (in Danish) and Mandag Morgen (in Danish). And a review of my book in Politiken (in Danish).

Recommendation
The best written/formal recommendation I ever got, was from Hanne Vibe Andreasen, Senior Manager at Deloitte Human Capital:

“I would love to be able to copy his ways of working in what seems like a dedicated state of flow, where great achievements, innovation and success come about in no time and with very limited resources. He can single-handedly and in weeks do what others with dozens of people and years are not able to!”
