CEO & FOUNDER

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank?

A lot, among the more important achieving results with (teams of) managers and people. Additionally, the importance of being aware of the difference and balance between hard work and smart work.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank?

I met Stine years ago when we were both working on (very) different startup projects 😊

What do you love about working in Learningbank?

The energy that arises when creating awesome learning solutions that are super well received by hundreds, and even thousands, of people around the world. Not least the close collaborations and strategic sparring with clients.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank?

I collaborate with our clients in the early stage of a partnership in order to scope projects in the best way possible. In other words, identifying companies in the market that are ambitious about digital learning and reaching agreements on digital learning projects.

What can I always ask you about?

Anything. I am somewhat private but not shy, so the worst that can happen is a “no comment” response.

What can I never ask you about?

Nothing, I’m quite sure you can’t offend me, so feel free to give it a try.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

Education:

Jobs:

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

Through the lovely Ludvig Hammeken.

What do you love about working in Learningbank? 

My skilled and friendly colleagues. And the many challenging and exciting project that we are part of.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank? 

My learning and communication competencies are brought into play when I advise potential and current customers to work with digital learning in their context.

What can I always ask you about? 

Ask away… I know a little about a lot…

What can I never ask you about? 

I’m not so good at the Swedish royal family, overseas wine and sci-fi literature.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

My granddad.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

I’m originally trained as a hairdresser, a 4-year education where I became aware of working with people. After the four years, I found out that something else should happen, so I became a telephone salesperson for Telenor in Odense. A short time after that I got promoted to team leader for 14 salespersons on the phone. As that went really well, they called from the head office in Sydhavnen and asked if I wanted to come in as Medium Account Manager. I said yes to that and became a traveling salesperson. I ended up being there 2,5 years before I was headhunted to a position as Key Account Manager at Global Knowledge, where worked for about a year before I came to Learningbank.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

It was actually a headhunter who approached me! I had actually heard about Learningbank before, as one of my colleagues at Global Knowledge had talked about what Learningbank could, even though they weren’t a direct competitor. And then I went to the meeting with the headhunter who made Learningbank sound like a really nice place. Then I had an interview with John (ed. VP of Revenue) and Stine (ed. Founder and CEO) who seemed like really sweet people, together with that there was a really good energy. So, after the meeting, I was convinced that I really wanted to be a part of Learningbank.

What excites you about the thought of working here? 

I really look forward to being a part of a young community with a lot of energy. I was the youngest before so it's definitely something that I have missed. And then I’m also excited about working in a successful company where practically only new people are employed. It gives a great sense of security.

What can you contribute to Learningbank?

I can contribute my skills, competencies, energy – and then I’m hopefully going to contribute a lot of turnover and sales. I’m very energetic, social, love humor and to make jokes, and then I love to build relations. It’s definitely something I have brought with me from the hairdresser world.

What do you look forward to working on

I look forward to learning something and getting proper into the sales process so that I can show my skills. I also look forward to telling about my new job to my former customers from my old workplaces. Also, I look forward to getting proper on the sales team and see what kind of community we have. And then, of course, to drink beer with the rest of Learningbank and to attend the parties.

What can I always ask you about? 

What kind of gin tastes the best, soccer, weight lifting, especially triathlon and my favorite computer game Dota.

What can I never ask you about? 

In generally politics, license, and slutty lingerie.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

Kevin Hart, Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Jordan Peterson, Drake, and/or Eminem.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

I have a theoretical background in marketing. I have a master’s degree in International Marketing and Management (IMM) from CBS. So, that is where I have my commercial background from. But after I graduated from CBS, I have worked a lot with sales, and I have worked as an Account Manager at other big startups, e.g. GroupOn, Trustpilot and a small tech startup called CluedIn. So I have more practical experience in sales.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

I once saw Stine do a pitch and right away, I got quite excited about the product and the vision for Learningbank. Afterward, I followed Learningbank from the sideline as I had an old colleague who worked there. And when a position was advertised, I then contacted Learingbank and got the position.

What excites you about the thought of working here?

The journey. I think that Learningbank already has proven that the product works and now we are heading towards some exciting years with a lot of growth and customers. So I look forward to being a part of that.

What can you contribute to Learningbank? 

I can contribute to identifying companies that could be interested in implementing digital learning. Besides that, I can define and delimit projects and provide strategical sparring about LMS and digital learning.

What do you look forward to working on? 

First and foremost, I look forward to going into the product in depth and learn how we work at Learningbank, and then I look forward to meeting a lot of dedicated people in the companies out there and help them get started with the transformation of their digital learning.

What can I always ask you about? 

Food, art, and culture. You can always ask me about where you should go on your next vacation or what to do at the weekend. My aunt and uncle work a lot with art, so it probably where my big interest in art stems from.  And then I have created a small startup before coming here, which was also within art.

What can I never ask you about? 

Sport. In general, all types of sport. I can understand it a little if it’s live. But sport on the TV, I could not imagine anything more boring than watching sport on the TV.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

The classics… Elon Musk, Nelson Mandela, possibly also Jim Carrey, because I think I could have a lot of fun with him. And then maybe also Margrethe Vestager.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

I’m trained in the retail business where I e.g. have worked at Fona for many years. From there, I switched to Sonofon, back when it was called that, and it was a really great time. But then I moved to the B2B part, and for the last 11 years, I have sold software solutions to both Nordic and international companies. I have always worked with sales, and I have a lot of practical experience.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

We had a brief dialogue, but back then it wasn’t the right fit, but then John (ed. VP of Revenue) contacted me at the end of 2018, and we quickly found out that the chemistry was good, also with Stine (ed. CEO and Founder). I quickly became fascinated with their enthusiasm and energy. Also, there was a good agreement between what they were looking for and what I was looking for.

What excites you about the thought of working here?

Even though Learningbank is growing, I really like that there is still a strong entrepreneur spirit. After the first days, it seems like a close-knit team and people are good at working across (ed. departments). People are really passionate about what they do. You are not just here from 9 to 5; you are part of the success. And then I think that the journey Learningbank already has been on in just a few years, is pretty amazing, especially when you think about that we are soon going to be  40 employees already. I have a lot of sales experience, but for me, HR is a bit new, so I look forward to learning a lot about that as well. I’m going to challenge myself more, and I think that is really awesome.

What can you contribute to Learningbank? 

I’m probably the oldest one here, but I have learned a lot through my career, and I can contribute with that knowledge. I have high energy and love to create a great spirit in a sales team, together with me being a competitive person. It also has to be fun to go to work and know that the day is going to be different – I think that is awesome.

What do you look forward to working on? 

I look forward to getting started with the sale and get out in the field. And I also look forward to meeting the existing customers and hear a bit more from them about what it is Learningbank is doing so well.

What can I always ask you about? 

Something that has filled a lot of the last two years is that I have built a house myself. So, development, construction companies, and all the little details – I can always talk about that. Besides that, I love to fish and to get out in nature.

What can I never ask you about? 

A lot of my friends are interested in soccer, but it does not appeal to me at all. I can watch an international match but other than that I’m don't know. I don’t really watch series either, but in return, I like to watch movies and documentaries. I even know the name Games of Thrones, but I have no idea what it’s about.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

Elon Musk. I would like to talk to him about how effective he has been able to make electric cars, and then he has some interesting ideas about underground roads. He seems visionary and like a skilled businessman. And else I would like to dine with my grandmother and grandfather. I would like to meet them again.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank?

My mom dropped me on the floor when I was a baby, and since then I have had a small hole in my head where ideas are continually flying out. I got it structured and extended with an academical foundation after a Bachelor of science in Medialogy and a Master of Science in Information Technology, Experience Design from Aalborg University. After several fantastic years at Bang & Olufsen as an Instructional Designer and later on as an Online Training & Design Manager, I had set my heart on the dynamic and engaging entrepreneurship world.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank?

I flirted with Stine Schulz on LinkedIn and were completed drawn by her enthusiasm and vision around revolutionizing digital learning. I wanted to go on a journey with her, and we found a tingling match.

What do you love about working in Learningbank?

The days vary, are challenging and always entertaining. I love to come home to my wife and answer the traditional question “How was your day?”. Also, I have the honor of working with some truly dedicated and well-skilled colleagues who will always go that extra mile to make the customers happy and push the boundaries for digital learning.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank?

I draw a lot from my own experience with digital learning and especially gamification. Also, I change role as needed and can with benefit both buckle down to help with production, take on the idea-hat under workshops, wear the captain’s armband during strategy meetings, and have the microphone in the hand when I try to spread the news about the value of gamification.

What can I always ask you about?

The Danish national football team’s results at the finals, computer games from the 90s and capitals in Asia. Hmmm. Generally, just the orange, pink and blue cheese from Trivial Pursuit.

What can I never ask you about?

How old Puk Elgaard is… I have no idea.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?

Jesus (we could save a lot of money of the wine check), Super Mario (I love Italian food), Ricky Gervais (because I laugh, when he laughs).

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

With German roots but an interest in Danish education branches within the personnel area, I chose to get a degree in Educational Science and HR Management in Denmark’s two best cities Århus and Copenhagen. Concurrently with the degree, I worked in different companies like Gebr. Heinemann, A. Bischoff GmbH, the Red Cross, etc. where I gathered experience within HR, process optimization and business development.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

I was made aware of the company through a job posting in the HR management network at CBS. During my master’s degree, I had the opportunity to have my internship at Learningbank.  After the internship, I kept contact with the company where I then after my degree was offered a job.

What do you love about working in Learningbank? 

I prefer dynamic workplaces that optimize continually and listen to the need on the market. That is certain at Learningbank, as flat hierarchies and short lines of decision-making ensure agile work processes.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank? 

As a new graduate, I started at Learningbank first as an account manager then to grow into the role as a consultant. Today, almost 3 years after my start at Learningbank, I’m now a Senior Consultant in our Success team, where I beside implementing and advise customers, is co-responsible for the product development of our LMS system together with optimization of Learningbank’s internal processes.

What can I always ask you about? 

Are you searching for Scandinavia’s best ‘saunagus’ (ed. sauna aromatherapy), a place that serves good ‘Danish smørrebrød’, or are you in doubt about Bayern Münchens next line-up, then please ask me. I happily share the information over a cup of cappuccino - just not Mondays and Wednesdays after 5 pm because that's when soccer is being played.  

What can I never ask you about? 

Good German food…

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

Is it possible to choose restaurants instead?

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

I have a Master of Social Sciences in Education Science from Aarhus University, where I specialized in organizational learning and onboarding. The theory was for real related to practice when I during my education worked as an intern at Bygma Gruppen’s HR department.  Here I build a basic understanding of HR-related work tasks, and I were confirmed that it was organizational training and learning that I should work with. Also, I have for many years worked in the restaurant business, which has given me a great human understanding which I use every day in my collaboration with colleagues and to a great extent in my relation to our customers

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

The first time I were acquainted with Learningbank was through my internship at Bygma. Hereafter, I followed Learningbank closely on LinkedIn – and on the same day, as I finished my master’s degree, I approached Learningbank to persuade them about that my passion for learning and development of people was precisely the reason why they should hire me.

What do you love about working in Learningbank? 

The most fascinating about working in Learningbank is the shared passion everyone has for what we do. In spite of the very low average age, everyone is amazingly skilled and very professional. I love to be a part of a team, where everyone is enthusiastic about what they do – and where there is room for differences of opinion so that we on all levels have a say.”

How do you use your skills in Learningbank? 

With vast knowledge in organizational learning and onboarding, I work in the role as a learning and implementation consultant with the development of and sparring about education and training of employees in a long line of Danish and foreign companies. Also, I am responsible for Learningbank’s internal academy and pre-and onboarding procedure, where I take part in ensuring that all my colleagues get a great start at Learningbank.

What can I always ask you about? 

What the precise temperature is for chocolate If you need to mold/cast perfectly stuffed chocolates with a mirror-like surface with a little crack, which Italian red wine tastes the best, or explanation for various North Jutland words and expressions.

What can I never ask you about? 

Which horror movie is worth seeing, or where to camp in Denmark.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

The inspiring and articulated philosopher Morten Aalbæk, the master of etiquette and author of Takt and Tone Emma Gad and/ the present modern business woman Christiane Schaumburg-Müller.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

I have a master’s degree in Information Technology, specializing in ICT, Learning and Organizational Change.  Before my time at Learningbank, I have worked with the production of e-learning and development of a learning management system (LMS) at the Danish National Police. In addition, I have been employed at Berlingske for almost 10 years, where I, for instance, have worked with digital service and support.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

I was at one of Learningbank’s morning seminars with a former colleague, and I went from there filled with inspiration and admiration. I later found out that if I was able to get so much out of a 2-hours seminar, then it was definitely a company that was worth being a part of. That resulted in an unsolicited job application that would turn out to be the beginning of my adventure at Learningbank

What do you love about working in Learningbank? 

Where do I begin? The energy for sure. There is a unique and energetic feeling here – I’m surrounded by skilled and dedicated people, and that inspires me a lot. And then it’s of course really cool to be able to work with a concept and a philosophy that you really stand behind. What’s not to love

How do you use your skills in Learningbank? 

I have a good understanding of how you combine it and learning and think it in an organizational context that gives added value to both the company and employees. Also, I strive to be a good sparring partner for the customers, so they get the right solution for them. I’m happy, smiling, and service-minded, so I hope that I can contribute to that the customers get a positive experience

What can I always ask you about? 

Food! I love food, everything about food – both to make it and to put it in the mouth. I cultivate both the outdoor life and ‘city culture’ and is an active film enthusiast, and I’m always open for exchanging experience

What can I never ask you about? 

Directions – I have absolutely no sense of direction. On the other hand, I have developed a closed relationship with Google Maps.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

Three extraordinary people, who were all before their time in a way: Elna Panduro (1871-1947), Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) & Dirch Passer (1926 - 1980) and preferably at the same time

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

I have a bachelor’s degree in Techno-Anthropology, where the anthropological toolbox often shows to be pretty useful in the pursuit of the good solution. I have an understanding of how different fields of expertise can be connected in knowledge-heavy companies, and I can act as a liaison between technicians and users. Furthermore, I have a master’s degree in digital innovation and management, where I have gained knowledge, skills, and tools to lead the many challenges and possibilities that are connected to digital change and innovation. A (perhaps) different experience to mention is that I for 7 years have ridden professionally on the Danish dressage team and have therefore represented Denmark throughout Europe from horseback.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

At a graduate party in January, a game of beer pong (a hidden talent that I have) developed into a conversation between Thorsten and me about Learningbank, where I quickly got a growing interest for Learningbank. A short time after, I had an interview with Mark, and my time at Learningbank began, and the growing interest for the company hasn’t got smaller.

What do you love about working in Learningbank? 

A lot: We are a fresh team, and it's different – no two days are the same. Every day, I get to contribute exactly with what I can. I work with competent and engaged people that can contribute different competencies, personalities, and mindset – and it’s pure joy to be a part of a team like that. Also, we have some of the most ambitious companies as customers, and it’s a great pleasure to play a part in creating learning in collaboration with them. To be part of Learningbank’s journey from startup to begin the journey as scale-up is really inspiring and educational.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank? 

I’m competent at project management, where I’m both driven by results and goals, and I do not deviate from the difficult decisions. I’m effective, and I use my energy to both create quick results, but also to maintain the motivation and competencies in my project groups. As a "horse girl", I’m pretty good at performing under challenging conditions, and I’m always completely solution-oriented. I can create dialogues across with great respect for others’ competencies, and thereby make sure that everyone contributes with what they are best at.

What can I always ask you about? 

For help with everything – it’s not always so I have the answer, but I can definitely find it – or found one that has it.

What can I never ask you about? 

I’m again tempted to answer that you can ask me about anything – for I probably know someone who knows the answer.  

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank?

As I am 32 years old, it took me quite some time before I ended up in Learningbank. I hold both a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and a Master’s degree in Psychology, and in my free time, I am a concert and wedding photographer. I am really happy that I found the perfect mix of both my passions: Being highly analytic on the one side and being creative, inventive and playful on the other. The move into producing digital learning games was gradual. I started in work- and organizational psychology, helping people on long term sick leave back to their jobs, moved to digital content production at my previous employer and am now working with translating content that is abstract and “boring” to some into something that is actually fun and engaging to go through.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank?

Like many others here in Learningbank, I got the job through a personal reference. Christian who I had worked with in my former job set me up with Stine (CEO) and Anders (VP Learning), and the chemistry was just there right away, I was blown away by Learningbank’s approach to what we work with, and I just loved the great people making up the team. So the decision for me to join the team was a “no-brainer”.

What do you love about working in Learningbank?

To me, the most interesting part of the job is solving a challenge that there is no clear answer to right away, and with many parameters to be aware of: The end product should both be engaging, easily accessible and enjoyable, but apart from that it should also be something that the user can learn from and use in their everyday job, and the organization should be able to see “value for their money” when they engage us. All this has to happen as effectively as possible, so the challenges we face are always a tough nut to crack. Mix it up with a team with many different backgrounds and roles, and often many projects running at the same time and many different customers and you have a great challenge in front of you. To be able to solve all these challenges, teamwork and dedication by all employees is key. We have to be agile, flexible and inventive. So what do I love about this? The challenges, the opportunities, the victories and the lessons learned and the great moments where the people involved in the project come together and end up with products that are always unique and pushing the limits of what is possible.

How do you use my skills in Learningbank?

As mentioned before, both being analytical and being creative at the same time are really important to succeed in my job. Apart from that, I draw on what I learned in my studies about learning, communication, cognition, working in and with organizations and teams. But my most important job is to be able to put myself in the users’ place and at the same time balance this with the organizational needs and intended outcomes.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education)  

I have a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Management Communication and a master’s degree in Corporate communication from Aarhus University. During my master’s thesis I was employed as a social media manager at a small bureau in Aarhus, and at the same time (and still am) I was part of a startup company where we design watches. I have gained a lot of experience in digital marketing and creative marketing initiatives at both places. In June 2018, I became a part of Team Learningbank, and I now live an exciting commute life between Aarhus and Copenhagen.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank?  

I was looking for a new job and after talking with Thorsten (ed. Senior Learning Specialist) who said that they could use someone like med. After that, I took a quick trip to Copenhagen and had an interview with Anders and Thorsten, and then I was lucky that they wanted to have me.

What do you love about working in Learningbank?  

To work together with a big bunch of passionate people. All are enthusiastic about the company, the product, the development, and each other. We exchange ideas and discuss issues with each other and step in if someone is very busy. There is truly a great team spirit. And then I love the innovative and creative universe that we both create and work in. There is always an opportunity to unfold creatively no matter if it’s about a text, graphic, workshops, collaboration with each other or with the customer. No two days are the same – even though it sounds like a big cliché, but it’s like that.   

How do you use your skills in Learningbank?  

With my background and experience, I have a great understanding for target groups, so I have in particular an eye on that when we work on our projects or have workshops. On the personal level, I’m always a person with a lot of smiles and bad jokes – and that, fortunately, fits well in with the rest of the team.  

What can I always ask you about?

Sheep jokes (you can never get too many of those), a great party playlist and the best way to make and serve chanterelles. You can always ask me for great tips to Læsø. As I have been going there ever since I was a child, and my parents have a seaweed house over there.  

What can I never ask you about?

Pavement, concrete work, or the rules of cricket. Generally, I get a little bit of presentation anxiety when I play Bezzerwizzer, Trivial Pursuit, or the likes. Even if I know the answer. My track record in winning games is not something I can write home about. I’m working on that.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder, Princess Diana, or Andy Warhol.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

I have a master's degree in Psychology, where I specialized in cognitive psychology and organizational psychology and in my master thesis, I wrote about cognitive psychological heuristics in machine learning. I have previously worked at Maersk Oil, where I work with security, culture, behavior, learning, and communication. Also, I’m interested in startups and participated last year in an incubation program called Health Innovators where I took part in starting up a project which will innovate the health sector.

I was working on my master’s thesis and researching how machine learning is being used in HR tech in Denmark. In my search, I came across a business report with tech companies where I saw that Learningbank was doing well on a lot of parameters. Curiosity led me to Learningbank’s website which told me that the team, for instance, consisted of psychologists! I thought that sounded interesting, so I followed Thorsten (ed. Psychologist and Senior Learning Specialist) on LinkedIn, and it didn’t take long before he wrote and asked me out for a cup of coffee.

What excites you about the thought of working here?

A lot of things. It excites me that it’s creative and that it’s about learning. It also excites me that it’s a startup that is doing well. The interdisciplinarity is really awesome. Technology, graphical design, psychology, and organizational theory are all connected. I really like that.

What can you contribute to Learningbank? 

I’m good at working with projects as I have experience with project management. At the same time, I have experience with learning in organizations and are good at transfer complex knowledge into something that others can use – which become meaningful to others. 

What do you look forward to working on? 

Right now, I work on IT security, and it’s going to be interesting to see how the topic can be made relevant and fun for the general employee. There is an exciting challenge in that.

What can I always ask you about? 

How to make delicious spring rolls with the perfect peanut sauce combination. I have also been made aware that I often start sentences with “I heard on a podcast that…” – so I could definitely contribute with some fun facts from there.

What can I never ask you about? 

The sports world! I don’t know who’s going to win Champions League or who is the world champion in golf.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

Amy Winehouse or Lene Kaaberbøl.

What experience did you make before coming to Learningbank?

My Bachelor studies covered mainly Digital Design and Concept, while my master’s degree was mainly based on Big Data management.

Before I landed my job at Learningbank, I was working as an e-learning and digital designer in a field of aviation.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank?

Since e-learning industry was not that big back in the days, it wasn’t that hard to know about Learningbank while being an e-learning designer. I was always interested in the company and what kind of projects did it work on. One day I have received an email from a former Learningbank’s HR manager if I would like to have a talk.

What do you love about working in Learningbank?

Since day one I could feel that everybody works towards the same goal. I believe that if I had to choose one thing that I love about Learningbank the most, it would definitely be the energy. People are always ready to help and take that extra mile to find the best solution for one or another situation.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank?

I use the skills that I gained from both my education and previous work experiences to overcome the barrier of how to build the bridge between words and graphical animations. I am converting plain text into graphics, motions, sounds, etc. Every day I have to overcome different challenges that require a different set of skills. Therefore I am not only using the skills that I gained but also constantly developing new ones which make my time at Learningbank even more interesting.

What can I always ask you about?

You can always ask me about my opinion, travels, where to find some good food, anything related to music or which books did I read.

What can I never ask you about?

Never ask me if I like pineapple on pizza.

Who do you want to dine with - dead or alive?

Freddie Mercury and Ernest Hemingway. Idyllically both at the same time.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

I graduated from the Animation Workshop as a 3D graphic designer and have since then worked as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer at Relation Media.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

I was at a christening where I sat at the same table as Anders Juul (ed. VP of Learning). We got to talk about my competencies as a graphic designer, and he showed me what Learningbank had previously made for McDonald’s, and he got to see my portfolio – and the rest is history.

What excites you about the thought of working here?

The projects with gamification are amazing and creating visual universes from the customers’ needs, and I think it's pretty fascinating.

What can you contribute to Learningbank? 

My graphical skills plus my curiosity and will to learn. I’m super interested in VR, and I have experience from 3D, so if we are going to make learning games in the future with that, it would be awesome to bring my skills into play.  And also, I like to bake cakes.

What do you look forward to working on? 

Art direction and to find a specific style for the different projects. Because I like to use different graphical styles, so I look forward to trying some and see what suits what.

That is a difficult question because I will always like to talk about everything, e.g. I’m not very interested in cycling but during CPH: DOX I was at a presentation with Jørgen Leth and the following movie about cycling which made the topic very exciting for me.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

Steven Spielberg, Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Pablo Picasso, Patricia Highsmith, and Tom Cruise.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

I’ve had my own company together with some others, where we worked on a Unity/3D game, and we worked on that for 2 years part-time. Then I have been an assistant for a person with diabetes and help him with his work as a kindergarten teacher the second part of the time. Then sadly it happened that he died. So, I ended up with taking over his hours and became a kindergarten teacher part-time for 20 hours, where I, for instance, made live role play every Friday for a bunch of children. It was nice to see some of them, who had a difficult time concentrating in school, and that it worked so well for them to go to it.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

It was actually the plan that I should finish my master’s thesis because I had put it on hold due to the game production. Some logistics didn’t add up in regard to getting it written, and then at the same time I felt over this position at Learningbank online and thought that it matched my profile perfectly, so I never got it done. So now I have a bachelor’s degree in Digital media and Design from ITU and “an-almost-master’s-degree in Game Design from the same place.

What excites you about the thought of working here?

It’s my first ‘real’ job, and I really look forward to being a part of that, and that I’m going to have more people to work with, because before I kind of had my own area, which I just had to manage. Now I'm going to have many to spar with instead.

What can you contribute to Learningbank? 

I hope that I get to contribute creative ideas to the learning games, and I also hope that I together with Anders Lumbye (ed. Lead VR Developer) can bring Unity (ed. a game-engine where you can place games in either 2D or 3D) into the portfolio.  

What do you look forward to working on? 

The Unity part and my impression is also that you can get a lot of gamification into learning games, and it’s going to be exciting to see how you can make it work! I look forward to trying out some unexplored areas.

What can I always ask you about? 

Computer games – I love especially RPG games, everything from Baldur’s Gate to Chronotrigger. Board games. A lot with the word game.

What can I never ask you about? 

Soccer. Actually, just sport in general, maybe except cycling.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

I’m thinking about gathering the last 14 ministers for taxation, drink them well under the table, and then play spin the bottle.

 

What experiences have I made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education)

After having worked at Netto for approx. 8½ years, I was more than ready to take on something new and exciting. It was here I found an education where creativity could be given free rein.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank?

I was looking for a traineeship after the basic train course at my school, and I had applied to every company that had been approved to have trainees. But all the spots were filled up at those places. Luckily, I was referred to Learningbank through Facebook contacts, and a short time after my application, they began the process of being approved to having trainees.

What do you love about working at Learningbank?

The creativity and ambition. Every idea is being turned and explored, and the final projects are getting better and better each time. With the high ambition, no idea is out of reach; it’s complete creator-freedom.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank?

I bring the latest programs into the production to make 3D better, nicer, and faster.

What can I always ask you about?

Everything within 3D and creative solutions.

What can I never ask you about?

Sport and politics. I have probably focused too much on the creative, so I don’t have much knowledge about those two topics.

Various supervisors from the big 3D film studios. I have so many things I would like to ask and learn from them.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

I have been far around and had the opportunity to dip into many different areas. It has given me great experience which I later have been able to include in my education and my work life. I have both been in the public sector and private sector, right from travel guide in my youth to customer service employee to the special needs education area and library area.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

I knew a learningbanker who told a lot about Learningbank – and then my interest was aroused.

What do you love about working in Learningbank? 

It’s a mixture of the responsibility you have and at the same time the freedom you get to stand on your own, to try new things, to create your own work day and thinking far out of the box. And then we learn something new all the time – we are pretty spoiled in regard to development possibilities.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank? 

The first week at the university, I was presented to the term: the reflective practitioner. And I often think back on that. As the challenges you face in the work life are rarely unambiguous and clear. They are often complexed. That’s why the ability to reflect before acting is a determining factor in regard to solving the tasks. Also, I have my communication toolbox with me.

What can I always ask you about? 

Great restaurants, gin/beer/coffee, fiction, theater, movies, actors, authors, and my body-age!

What can I never ask you about? 

Tour de France, Champions League, song lyrics, flowers, and plants

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

I should answer something sensible and well-thought-of like Virginia Woolf or Barack Obama… Buuut, I would really just like to have a fun night with Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn, Wanda Sykes, and Melissa McCarthy.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

I have a BA in Danish (Literature, Language, and Media) and a Cand.mag. in journalism.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

When I was working as a freelancer, John (VP of Revenue in Learningbank) got in touch with me through an online freelance platform, because he thought I had an interesting profile for the position as a part-time Content Manager. We met up, had a great talk, and the rest is history.

What do you love about working in Learningbank? 

There is so much I love about working in Learningbank, e.g. the great, passionate people, who have lots of ideas, and, furthermore, it is great to be a part of a company, which is so much on the rise, and that definitely affects the vibe through the office space.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank? 

I produce a lot of content (blogs, ebooks, videos) for our platforms, so I use my journalistic skills to make it as interesting and relevant as possible for our followers. Copywriting and SoMe is also a part of my job in the marketing department, and when we have press releases, and other messages, we have to get out in public, I also use my former skills within PR and my own network of journalists to get our messages out wide. Sometimes I help the LEA-department with sound editing, speaks, grammatical matters, and other communicative tasks.

What can I always ask you about? 

My favorite era in the history of literature, what podcasts to listen to, how to enjoy a great single malt whiskey from the district of Islay (Scotland), how to make a good vegetarian pizza, how Matilde likes her ice blend, and what yoga-position can comfortably twist and stretch your spine.

Who’s participating in Tour de France this year, if I like DC Comics or Marvel the most, and when to stop drinking homemade ’kryddersnaps’.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

Two great diva-girls from the stage and screen: The Danish actress Johanne Luise Heiberg (1812-1890) and the American actress Marilyn Monroe (1926 - 1962).

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

I’m currently studying a master’s degree in International Business Communication and English at the University of Southern Denmark which I will finish this coming summer (2019). Yes, it’s a long way to Odense, about 2 ½ hours each way.  Before that, I studied at Aalborg University where I got my bachelor’s degree in International Business Communication and English with specialization in organization and management. During my bachelor’s degree, I had the opportunity to study abroad for one semester. I chose to study at San Diego State University, where I besides improving my English communication skills learned about marketing and advertising, which made me realize that this was what I wanted to work with, in the future.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

As part of my master’s degree, I was looking for an internship in marketing and communication. I’m a member of a Facebook group where people post about job or internship possibilities. I saw a post from Learningbank that they were looking for an intern in the marketing department, I thought it sounded interested and just what I had been looking for. So, I sent an application, meet with Matilde (ed. Marketing & Growth Specialist) for an interview about the internship which led to me being offered the position as Marketing and Growth Intern

I love the energetic and young atmosphere and how we share knowledge and help each other across the departments. I also love how engaged everyone is in they work, whether they work with sales, coding, creating learning universes, etc.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank?

What can I always ask you about?

Amy Schumer, Steven Seagal, and Dirch Passer.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

I have no education besides from high school – many certifications but no education. Previously, I worked as Product Manager at Europe’s biggest Talent Management company Lumesse.  I was a product manager for performance management, where I build a platform up from scratch. I was responsible for workflows and development, traveled around the world and was responsible for 500 employees globally for 3 years. Before that I was Chief Consultant for Lumesse in Scandinavia for 1 year, and before I was a Senior Principal Consultant.  A mentor who taught new consultants. And before that, I was at IBM.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

Lumesse closed in Denmark, but I was the only employee, so I sat alone for 2½ years and traveled a lot. Every other week I was in Düsseldorf, Germany. But when you have seen the same hotel 400 times and can high five the receptionist, and they already have turned on the shower when you get arrive and sat the favorite cake out… that is not very motivating in the long run. I only gave 30 % of my potential in that position. A good friend made me aware of this flighty woman Stine (ed. CEO & Founder) who he thought I should drink coffee with. I had a long line of meetings with Stine before she gave me a job offer as a product manager, but I turned down the offer because I didn’t feel ready. I ended with sending her a long e-mail one and a half months later, where I wrote that I had gotten a little wiser and that I should be better at jumping out in something I don’t know. 10 minutes went by and then she called me and told that she had left a client meeting because she had fallen down the chair because of my e-mail, and now I’m VP of Product & Professional Services.

What do you love about working in Learningbank? 

My colleagues. It sounds old-fashioned, but this energy that young people have – that was completely missing in my former positions.  But here, people are so grotesquely dedicated to their work, and it’s fantastic to see. It’s an exciting journey to play a part in building something up, and in a couple of years, you can hopefully say that we are now 200 people. And we eat a lot of cake.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank? 

The most important is to ensure that people have the remedies they need to do their work tasks. I help with decomposing the tasks they are facing. I see that as the most important as a manager. I coach, counsel and direct a path. It’s about lifting the people in the team, and it takes that you set aside your ego.  Or else you are never pulling together, and I try to do that every day. Also, I tell myself that I have a strong ability to communicate a message on a stage.

What can I always ask you about? 

Old axes and restoration. I can tell what the difference is between French country axes and Danish country axes, and I’m also really good at rum and whiskey.  Travels! I have lived in 9 countries, and I love to travel. Or else you can ask me about everything, there is no question that I don’t want to listen to.

What can I never ask you about? 

Reality tv programs, stupid tv that should be removed from programming! Cricket – I have tried to play it, and I just don’t get it with three sticks and the ball that needs to be tipped over.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

H.P. Lovecraft, Churchill, Mitterand.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

Learningbank is my first job within coding. Before that my focus was on education together with various jobs as bartender/waiter which have given me great experience in customer service

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

I have been with Learningbank from the beginning and even before that, when it was stilled called BusinessPower. I had to have 3 months internship, and then I saw a post on LinkedIn about a company that was looking for an intern. After the interview with Stine, she thought that I sounded like a really interesting person and we made a deal.  

When the 3 months were over, she had become so happy with me that she couldn’t do without me and I was offered a permanent position, and after almost 4 years I’m still here.

What do you love about working in Learningbank? 

What I love most about Learningbank are my colleagues. Our teamwork and the chemistry we have are supreme. We work really well together across departments, and we exploit really well each other’s strengths. 

Another thing that I love about working here is the influence you can have on the company’s future – if you have great ideas you can with certainty know that you will be heard, and the idea will be taken into consideration – and who knows, maybe even also carried out. The development and welfare of employees are placed high on Learningbank’s priority list – both professionally but also personally. 

So what’s not to love about Learningbank.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank? 

All the feedback and great ideas we get from the customers and internally are gathered, and in collaboration with our product manager, designer, developer, we create the best and most intuitive solutions for our customers. 

As a front-end developer, I play a part in incorporating and developing the designs in our platform. Here is my love for design and user-friendliness really an advantage. I also play a part in making sure that we use the best technology and looking into what the next step is regarding improving our platform.

What can I always ask you about? 

Coding of course and then I love to play computer games, so that is also a great way to start a conversation. Besides that, I have a really big interest in the Japanese culture especially feudal Japan.

What can I never ask you about? 

It’s not always an easy question to answer, but if we are going to have a conversation going and not just a one-way dialogue, you should probably avoid talking about politics and soccer.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

Marilyn Manson, Miyamoto Musashi, Amy Lee, Gabriel Iglesias, and my granddad. And not necessarily all at the same time.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank?
I have an AP degree in Computer Science from EASJ (ZIBAT) in Roskilde, with my electives being: Security, Game Development & IoT.
Prior to this, I served as a private in the Danish defense (Army).

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank?

While I was still studying, I began looking for job opportunities, so that I hopefully could have a job to jump right into, once I was finished with my exams. One day my teacher came to me and asked how my job search went. He mentioned that he knew someone who could use a developer with my level of commitment and talent. After a couple of talks with him, I then received the phone number of the former interim CTO of Learningbank. Some days after my exams, I came to a job interview and was hired.

What do you love about working in Learningbank?

It's amazing that you can see the progress and development that our individual work does for Learningbank, it's a huge motivational factor. We have a lot of interdisciplinary processes and projects that involve several of our departments, which help create a unique collaboration among us.
Most of all I'm happy to work in Learningbank because I have some amazing colleagues who are always happy and accommodating!

That was by the way why I moved to Denmark, as I’m originally from Iceland. After that, I was an intern at Napp, and they were so happy for me that they chose to hire me. I was with them for three years.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

A headhunter contacted me on LinkedIn and told me about Learningbank, even though I wasn’t looking for a job. But I could feel that I needed a change and was open to working in a company of a different size. At my interview with Mark, I had a really good feeling about the company and an even better feeling when I met some of the people from the Development team, Olaf and Carsten.

What excites you about the thought of working here?

There is a really relaxed atmosphere here, and there are also a lot of cool benefits. The Development team is also bigger than what I’m used to, and I think that is cool because I get to exchange ideas and discuss issues with people who do the same as me. Because before I worked alone. I have also met the big boss Stine and really liked her mindset. It’s similar to my own.

What can you contribute to Learningbank? 

I can share my knowledge with the team, suggest new possibilities and get the platform up to date with the newest technology. I’m also super excited about learning more about the technology that is being used already.

What do you look forward to working on? 

I look forward to updating the technology and learning more about the people here. I wasn’t as social at my former work, so I’m pretty excited about being here. I was also very surprised about Learningbank having a buddy system where you get a buddy from a different department, and I think that is really cool.

What can I always ask you about? 

Programming of course! And working with websites and development of business ideas. I really love music too, and I’m very fond of sitting in my basement at home and play the guitar with my three-year-old soon. You can also always talk to me about American politics and how stupid they are.

What experiences have I made before coming to Learningbank?

The day I came to Learningbank was during my second year of my bachelor’s degree. So, my prior experiences were very thinly related to either IT or learning in general. Examples include café line-cook and cashier at 7-eleven. However, what I’ve experienced during my time in Learningbank, was that no matter my prior experiences, there was always something I could use in my work at Learningbank. For example, my experience from 7-eleven came in handy, when I engaged with a piece of digital learning related to 7-eleven. I have now been with Learningbank for over 2 years.

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank?

I stumbled across Learningbank when someone linked the job posting on social media. I had no prior knowledge of Learningbank beforehand, but at the same time knew I wanted to work within a smaller business, which made it a great match.

What do you love about working in Learningbank?

It might sound corny, but I really believe Learningbank can provide two things. Firstly, I think that Learningbank as a company, allows your ideas to be heard. Learningbank’s agile way of handling ideas or inputs makes you feel like you matter, instead of it dying in a pile of
bureaucracy and compliance. Secondly, I really think the social atmosphere is something great and unique.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank?

In Learningbank I use a wide variety of skills in several contexts. For example, I use my technical knowledge to ensure our ideas are aligned with the capabilities of our tech stack, or I use my design knowledge to guide and explore such ideas.

What can I always ask you about?

You can always ask me about deadlifting technique. Or Japanese chef-knives.

What can I never ask you about?

I will have a hard time explaining the proof behind how gradient descents helps point towards a correct weight in machine learning. Or just calculus in general.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?

I think Hunter S. Thompson would be a lot of fun.

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank?

Before working at Learningbank I was employed at Kvickly where I was in the kiosk area. This included selling the goods present there as well as managing the whole sales area. In terms of education I have an BSc in Digital Media and Design from the IT-University of Copenhagen

How did you find/get in touch with learningbank?

My friend, and now coworker, Emil referred me

What do you love about working in Learningbank?

The people and overall atmosphere present at Learningbank is amazing. There is a near perfect mix of professionalism and fun. Furthermore I like the tasks given to me and the flexibility with which I am able to get new kinds of tasks if I begin to find some of what I do a bit stale, i.e. there is room for progression.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank?

Being systematic, having an understanding of how users might interact with software as well as having knowledge of programming logic is probably the skills I use most throughout my different work tasks.
When testing software for different bugs it is very useful to deal with the task at hand in a very systematic way as to make sure that you try as many different sets of inputs as possible. This way there is a bigger chance of actually discovering if a bug is present, or finding the actual combination that causes the bug.
Having an understanding of how users would use the user interface of a system allows me to quickly gauge what should be given the highest priority when testing something new in the system. It also helps in identifying if something in the system could be optimized in order to further increase user experience.
Lastly having some knowledge of programming logic allows me to set up different kinds of automatic tests in an efficient and easily understandable way.

What can I always ask you about?

You can always ask me about what the newest hottest sneaker is, what my current ranking is in the game Heroes of The Storm, and what the next big electronic music concert is in CPH.

What can I never ask you about?

Soccer, or football, or whatever you want to call it. It just doesn’t click with me.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?

Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, probably better known as the electronic music duo called Daft Punk. Growing up I heard their productions a lot and they have greatly influenced

What experiences have you made before coming to Learningbank? (Former jobs and education) 

I have been self-employed since 2009, and before that, I was Customer Management Chief at BoConcept.

When I became self-employed, I received my first CVR number from the entrepreneur school at Niels Brock (Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Design).

How did you find/get in touch with Learningbank? 

The first wish was to optimize companies and organizations, so we don’t waste people’s time. Besides, my first company was game-based, so that’s why these two mindsets work well together. Subsequently, Learningbank and Learningbank’s purpose have changed along the way with the people who have joined.

What do you love about working in Learningbank? 

I love the seriousness we have when it comes to learning; I love that we dare to challenge what exists and I love that we play a part in affecting people’s possibilities to become even better than they were yesterday. Then I love the possibilities in that the entire world is our playground. And I love to do it together with all the people at Learningbank.

How do you use your skills in Learningbank? 

I try to see possibilities instead of limitations, and then I try to at the same time to keep the focus on the goal which can seem paradoxical. I help the customers with creating the visions they have or the ones they didn’t know they had. And then I use my crazy head to challenge both internally and externally.

What can I always ask you about? 

Food and drink, especially gin and wine, and the small dishes –everything from tapas to sushi. Overall, I love Italy.

What can I never ask you about? 

Baking… I think it’s really nice, and I like to eat it, but that dough, it’s way too sticky. I can bake a pie, but that’s because the dough is rolled. But you can always talk to me about everything, even if I don’t know anything about it – I’m still going to have an opinion about it anyway.

Who do you want to dine with – dead or alive?  

My grandmother. And Michelle Obama because I’m counting on that she is going to be the first female American president. And then of course Einstein.
