I am the newest enforcement to Agile Work’s team. I started as the company’s Development Director in January. My responsibilities, among others, are developing our partner network and service platform, communications and marketing. Fortunately, in a small company you get to do many other interesting things, as well. I am also responsible for bringing some woman power to the company.

I have twelve years of experience from the design field, doing PR for design and leading different international projects and collaborations. During the past years, I have been very happy to be able to work together with so many creative people and promote Finnish design know-how. Highlights from my career so far have been organising a fashion show in Paris, which was crazy, and bringing design installations to the Frankfurt Book Fair. There, Kustaa Saksi’s Egg installation was my absolute favourite and the theme of many good jokes.

I am an international business and design business management graduate and I have studied storytelling in international marketing. I am currently studying service design and very happy to be able to use it in my work. I admit that I have been bitten by a service design bug. I truly believe that with the help of design thinking and design methods we can create better workplaces, better services and better business.

I am thrilled to develop organisations’ workplaces, enhance employee satisfaction and grow our collaboration network together with this great team. There is good energy at Agile Work. Esmi and Antti are true professionals in their field and they practice what they preach: thrust, creativeness, agility and a small craziness.

I am inspired by wonderful people, cultural experiences, good food and wine. As my German grandfather said, “Das Leben ist zu kurz um schlechten Wein zu trinken”, meaning life is too short to drink bad wine. Although my sense of rhythm is not what it used to be, I hope to be able to start my dear dancing hobby again one day. My family, especially my two lovely daughters, are the light of my life. I love to spend my free time with them doing great stuff, travelling and enjoying life in general!
