I had the pleasure of working with Hanne for 1½ years in Novo Nordisk, she as project owner for the new intranet GlobeShare, I as the IT project manager.

Furthermore the project group members all agreed that Hanne’s personal interest and motivational skills stood out and made management very visible.  Erik Korsvik Østergaard, Project Manager, Novo Nordisk A/S (now Partner & Advisor, Bloch&Østergaard)

Hanne is a pleasure to work for. I worked for Hanne when she was managing a cross-organisational global strategy project, with input from everyone (including me). In the last couple of weeks of the project she made all ends meet, wrapped it up, and gave it a final quality lift – of course doing her more than full-time job on the side. Hanne’s “mega”-tasking skills are admirable.     Karsten Stryger, Knowledge Manager, Novo Nordisk A/S (now Founder, Bestyr)
