Jenny Magnell 🇸🇪 Stockholm
I have been in the consulting industry for over 20 years. My first years were as a management consultant with several assignments at various clients and industries. Here I developed an interest in understanding the client’s business and how it could be supported and improved with new technology. Consultants have an exceptional gift for clients by having an outside perspective to an internal situation. Consultants are good problem solvers since they can apply experience from many different issues and situations, to help change and move forward.
My last year of study at the university in the 90s, I wrote an essay on how electronic payments could streamline many businesses and their end customers. This was long before electronic payment was launched and used. This is just one example of how unbelievable (old I am!) things have changed with technology over time. However, this incredible movement is something I don’t want to miss, and that’s why I want to stay in this field and continue to help impact how clients succeed with technological change.
Early in work-life, I engaged in various leadership roles, and over the years, it´s been quite a few. This is one of my best choices in life. I have learnt so much, and it has given me a lot of joy and understanding, understanding of others but also a better knowledge of myself. I always like to find opportunities in challenges. If I can only inspire or guide one individual or even better a team to develop and grow, it also motivates me a lot. Most of all, I want to create a good environment where you feel that you can participate, be yourself and enjoy spending your time.
My device is to continuously strive to become a better person and never stop learning.
My free time is spent with my family and friends. I have two children and a dog, so their activities and long dog walks take up a lot of my time. I also like to keep good health in different ways, so I´m interested in healthy eating, running, yoga and I particularly enjoy skiing. I always have one good book on hand for reading, to me, that´s is the best way to learn something new and get some time for yourself.
