diversophy® Marketing and Development Specialist
I was born and grew up in small town called Haapamäki in middle of Finland. At the age of 16 I moved to Jyväskylä to do my studies and during those studies and afterwards I gained experience from working both in and outside of Finland in different fields. I lived in Switzerland and for short period in Denmark and also traveled around Europe.
I have always been interested in studying and working in English instead of my mother language Finnish and for that I am studying International Business at JAMK University of Applied Sciences in Jyväskylä. Since I really enjoy the international environment in our study field, I chose to focus on Cross-Cultural Management and Economics of Competitiveness in my studies.
I was first acquaintanced with diversophy® in my first year of Intercultural Communication studies, when we played version of the diversophy®
New Horizons. I found the game extremely well-executed and the lectures presented by George Simons inspired me even more. Last autumn part of our course in Cross-Cultural Management involved facilitating New Horizons with a variety of companies and organizations. This let me a number of new insights for developing diversophy®.
