Salesforce Business Group Senior Manager


"Working with people and communication are the two things that fill my life and satisfy me the most."

How I put change in motion

My life at Accenture is quite diverse. Firstly, I am responsible for presales, primarily on Salesforce Marketing Cloud projects. Secondly, I run a Nordic Center of Excellence on Marketing Cloud together with Accenture Interactive (our clever and creative people). Finally, I am a mental health ally, people lead for 8 people and recruiting - just to mention some of my responsibilities. Working with people and communication are the two things that fill my life and satisfy me the most.

During my time, the most exciting project I have worked on is probably setting up our Marketing Cloud Center of Excellence as it combines technology and communication in a great way and bridges many different departments at Accenture, making us come together as truly one company.

A day in my life

My typical day at Accenture is anything but typical, and that is one of the charms of working at Accenture. It can be anything from continuing with one of many Business Development tasks, talking to my colleagues, handling issues on a given project, checking out a new cool tech feature, calling Salesforce, or interacting with other parts of Accenture. One thing is for sure: it is about talking with people – and that is my favorite thing!

Some people prefer a day where you basically know everything that is going to happen – I prefer days with very diverse tasks, a day where both halves of your brain are in use. And that is possible at Accenture.

One could argue that I have two fulltime jobs as being married and having three daughters is a full time work in itself, but I try to spend time on two additional passions as well. One of them is music where I play the piano, sing and write songs, and the other one is cooking which in my family has always been a task for the men. I also have some board meetings in a Danish NGO as well as political work which I will not bore you with. My evenings usually end with a good book, preferably a combination of history, fiction and a tad of weird humor.

My advice

If you are into diversity in all aspects, having a challenging day while working with great people who are full of passion in what they do, then Accenture is the place to be.

And most importantly, interacting with people who will help you grow where you can be yourself is only adding to the diversity and culture which makes Accenture what it is.
