News: Jonas Bladt Hansen joins as our new Advisor

It’s with great joy that we welcome Jonas Bladt Hansen as our new Advisor!

I’ve known Jonas for some 5 years, working with him on enterprise collaboration projects and strategic challenges of global communication, and have gotten to learn him as a visionary, ambitious, forward-thinking man.

Previously Jonas held the position as Director and Head of Internal Global Communication at the large Danish international dairy company Arla.

Jonas will be advising organizations on the Future of Leadership, Digital Transformation and Employee Experience Design. In its essence, it’s about creating great workplaces where people love to show up!

In particular he will be focusing on how technology shapes the future and how organizations can reap the benefits of the technological development, especially within the fields of leadership, innovation, collaboration and change communication.

AND he’s a great speaker on Employee Experience, modern internal communication, and organizational change management. Look out for that!

For a half decade, the roads of Bloch&Østergaard and David Engle have crossed paths numerous times, leading to inspiration, debate, and new ideas. David has a strong understanding of the significance of purpose and trust in the 21 century leadership.

We share the same mindset and views, and we now team up in order to explore a joint collaboration:

  • We want to change the world
  • We believe in the same “thing” – creating work environments that people want to work in
  • We complement each others competencies
  • We totally dig our Collective Intelligence, where 1+1 > 2

David has a past in several large corporate organizations, e.g. Coloplast and FLSmith, runs Lead21, and is CEO of a startup in parallel with our collaboration.

Innovation always brings some form of change along the side. Thus, some is small, others big, change is inevitable when it comes to innovation. Considering these changes as a part of the innovation process is an advantage that will help you and your organization to better enabling new ways of working.

So, before you set sails and make speedboats and experiments, take a second to look at the blast radius as well as the sphere of influence. This will help you take your speedboats into harbor.
