Here are a few endorsements from some of the great people I've had the pleasure of working with, more can be found on LinkedIn


“Thomas is the smartest guy I have ever worked with. The one thing that makes him stand out vs. other bright people is how he is integrating alternative viewpoints, not only his own. It makes the team emerge with a much better answer or solution. Thomas embodies everything you want in a colleague; principled, honest, hardworking and great company. I've seen Thomas excel at leading executive workshops, and I've seen how patient and positive he is when coaching someone. So, if you ever get a chance to work with Thomas that's a chance you don't want to miss. I certainly hope to get the privilege to work with him again.”

Oyvind Ihle, Head of Global Omega-3 Nutrition at BASF

“I worked with Thomas in a project where Thomas was helping us as a consultant to plan, collect, structure and analyze internal and external market information to achieve competitive edge within one of our chosen business areas. He has a very high working capacity and work in a very structured way. His structure combined with analytical skills and highly advanced analysis tools gave us a lot of valuable results in our work.”

Frank Nordby, President Jotun Paints Inc.

“Thomas is an extremely thorough, focused, and hardworking individual. As a consultant Thomas has extremely good strategic overview and grasps both concepts and opportunities quickly.

Working together with Thomas was not only enjoyable, but Thomas' professionalism, communication and customer skills, made project progress and internal alignment effective.

For myself, I would gladly work with or alongside Thomas at any point either now or in the future and would have no doubts at all in recommending Thomas to any organization or client requiring strategic managerial skills and competence.”

Scott Harvey, Founder and Co-Owner of Kidzeboo AS
