Together, we identify key decision makers and influencers and create an impact plan that I support your organisation to implement.

Whether it is a parliamentary election panel, an advocacy seminar, business meeting or an annual meeting, let me make sure you have a successful event.

Speeches and presentations, fairs, panel discussions, seminars and interviews, let me help You!

Courses and accommodation in beautiful City of Loviisa by the sea

I organise courses with my business partners in Loviisa, Villa Omenankukka (Villa Apple blossom) only 1 hour drive from Helsinki. Also bed & breakfast available.

“When I was thinking about a name for my business, I wanted to communicate my values and goals. I value education above everything else − as it is the path to a better life, well-being and success. Finland’s future depends on what kind of early childhood education and training children and youth receive in their municipality. “Lov” also refers to Loviisa, the company’s charming and historic hometown by the sea.”
