Award-winning communication consultant, writer, editor and trainer
With more than 25 years of experience
While born and raised in South Carolina, USA, I have been based in Copenhagen, Denmark since 1986.
After a stint as a direct-marketing copywriter, I moved to McKinsey & Company, a management consultancy, to be senior communication specialist. I provided communication counsel to McKinsey teams and clients throughout northern Europe. I spent several months in McKinsey’s Australian office. And I served 3 years on McKinsey’s worldwide training faculty for new consultants, where I taught how successful business depends on successful communication.
In 1991, I helped found Communication Alliance, an innovative Copenhagen communication agency. In 1995, we became the first agency in Europe to counsel clients on how to take advantage of online communication; and in 1996, we created Europe’s first interactive financial services website.
In 1997, I joined Novo Nordisk, a leader in pharmaceuticals and bioindustrial enzymes. I led the corporation’s online communications efforts, helping develop online presences in 55 markets.
From 1999-2001, I worked exclusively in online communication as CEO and practice leader in Denmark’s two leading online agencies. My practice areas were healthcare, pharmaceuticals and online communities.
Since 2001, I’ve been an independent, helping clients on both sides of the Atlantic listen to and converse effectively with the people they should be listening to and conversing with.
