FROM A COMMUNICATIONS PRO TO AN ENTREPRENEUR, CONSULTANT AND COACH
A communications professional with over 30 years of experience
The red thread in my work has always been communications, in which I have taken many different roles. For almost 15 years I was responsible for communications, as well as marketing, investor relations and sustainability, in two big international corporations..Most of the situations faced by organizations are familiar to me, whether it is the creation of a new company’s marketing, communications and IR functions, or, for example, co-determination negotiations, brand building , or the company’s listing.
II founded my own company focusing on coaching and communications consulting in 2019. My company was named Linarni after my children Liina and Aarni.
In addition to communications consulting, I help my clients as a business coach and as a team and group coach. Only good leadership and supervision, well-functioning teams, and collaboration across team boundaries can drive employees to the best achievement and success for the company. I can help you with these things.
The foundation of my work is built on a desire to help, authenticity, trust, and continuous development.
