Nice to meet you!
I’m Per Olof. I have an (unhealthy according to some…) interest in everything about logistics, transportation, Supply chain management, digitalization, electrification, sustainability, tech, strategy, podcasting, pizza making, Tarantino movies and other important stuff.
I am an independent advisor, speaker, board member and visionary explainer with a background in both academia and industry spanning 35 years.
I think I have a knack for explaining complex things, for complicating seemingly simple things, for seeing the big picture when everyone else are drowning in details, for getting things done and also for enabling and supporting creative development.
Broad and deep
During my career I have been fortunate to be able to not only go deep into subjects but also to go wide, spending time in many domains.
Mechanical Engineer, MSc
I am an engineer at heart, schooled to treat problems in a structured and scientific fashion. Technology can be used to adress many challenges we face as a society today.
The digital development in logistics and transportation has been a quest since the late 1980s. Research combined with industry experience has given me a unique and diverse background in the field.
Professional keynote speaker with 100+ appearances since 2008. Combining visionary insight, knowledge, humor and pedagogical skill to explain complex things in an entertaining manner.
