Ulrik says about Torben
As the managing director for LinKS Advice Torben is the analytical and structural backbone of LinKS. Torben is an amazing collaborative relationship builder who always looks for ways to influence the projects he is involved with in a way that forces the strategic bend of the content to seek new and stronger business models based on networked approaches. Torben makes the LinKS network come to life because he takes pride in all details while his mind will never forget the big picture and long scope of all the projects he designs, manages and nurtures with a refreshing creativity.
Ulrik possesses the ultimate tools to help our executives experience personal growth and gain ambitious business results. The learning curve is steep and Ulrik is himself the foremost example of pushing new learning loops based on global perspectives from his many travels and seminars. When it comes to energy and focus Ulrik has his own recipe which many people including the LinKS Team have gained new mental models from. Ulrik is pushing us all hard in our learning processes whether they are personal or part of a LinKS executive program or project. Be ready for the fact that Ulrik will ask you the hardest questions you have ever HAD and when the clue stands clear it is all suddenly very simple.
Our controller is extraordinarily well qualified for the job and a tremendous negotiator. In LinKS we cherish support processes that work! Jørgen is really Mr Fix-it in LinKS when complex budgets or partner contracts needs to be solved as a win-win alliance.

Mette says about Arne
Back in those days where LinKS was formed as a consortium across public and private sector, Arne and myself where the frontrunners together. Besides being my colleague he was also my boss in the Ministry of Finance - and the very best! A man I admire the most for his extreme intellect and world class HR strategic perspective. Did I mention he is unbeatable on business decisions.
