I'm a creative facilitator and partner at the 130+ employee strong Stendahls digital agency in Gothenburg, Sweden.
As a facilitator I work with managing change processes and coach individuals and teams with the goal of creating strong creative teams, both within my own organisation and for clients. In my work I focus on conveying the need to embrace change, curiosity and collaboration in a world that becomes ever more complex and fast-paced by the day.
On my spare time I chase pro cyclists with my camera sitting on the back of a photomotobike.
Weird stuff like how old synthesizers work (but can't play them) and Eddie Izzard quotes (who can live without Eddie Izzard quotes?!).
Making the world a kinder place
Listen more than you talk
Bamse, the world's strongest bear. He was my childhood hero. He taught me to be nice to the nice. But to stand up for myself when being bullied. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bamse]
The power of talking less and listening more
Christer’s CreativeMornings activity
Visual noise steals our thoughts and our capacity to focus. There is so much visual noise that our own internal film production unit is going out of business.
Look at silence as a potential universe. The seed of something.
Some valuable things that are lost in the fire of constant noise are the roots of original ideas. The long exploring thoughts that you can have when you are not interrupted, when the mind goes on long meandering journeys without a destination.
The beauty of silence is that you can dream when you're awake.
Silence isn't measured in decibels. It's measured in the degree to which you are present in the moment.

Marc Eastmond The only muse you need
Go home and think about what effects your inspiration. Where and when are you most creative. And then act on it.
Good things need time. So protect your time so you can put in the hours.
Let's see if we can create our own recipe for inspiration
If you would have asked me about my recommendation when it comes to having a muse, my answer would be "you don't need one"
I'm gonna do my best to dispel the myth of the muse in the time we have
Am I really going to wear a business suit and unicorn slippers on stage in front of 300 people? Yeah, why not?!
Imagine a world without curiosity. It would be rather pale, kind of bleak.
I have CreativeMornings to thank for my new-found interest in curiosity, that has been hidden in plain sight for me for a long time
When I was three years old, I distroyed goverment property. Some would blame my parents, and they would be right.
