Decade of action: Passed – and upcomingPublished: 2020-06-29 04:13
I have been with Essity for a little more than ten years. I have developed tremendously and equally enjoyed these ten years. I have made so many experiences and so many friends. The decade has been packed with communications experiences; Divestment and M&A communications, large organizational projects, the amazing Team SCA in the Volvo Ocean Race, numerous branding projects with the rename and rebrand of SCA/Essity as one of many many many highlights. It’s been a decade of action to say the least.
Essity has a space – in people’s minds and on the map and the purpose of “Breaking Barriers to Well-being” is stronger and more relevant than ever. All good things come to an end at it is time to continue to develop myself and for Essity to continue to develop under a different brand leadership. I am proud of what we have accomplished together over the past years and I really look forward to following the continued development – but from an outside-in perspective.
Some of the last years blog highlights and leave behinds:
- Never-ever stop talking about menstruation and incontinence. It can make a tremendous difference to an individual or a collective.
- The importance of a smile – I am convinced that kindness, consideration and care are true success factors. You need to take time for it.
- You are good at what you like and you generally like what you are good at. Find these inspirations.
- Feedback is an important way of developing – and it’s a gift to be delivered in shiny paper with beautiful ribbons. When delivered and accepted in a good way the effect is maximized.
- Do, delegate, delete – a quick guide of support with it comes to planning and prioritization – conscious breathing will take you a long way as well 😊
- In the REAL DECADE OF ACTION – the one towards 2030 and delivering on the Sustainable Development Goals, we all need to act – we all need to decide what world we want to live in and what world we want to pass on to our children. Food for thought.
I love my job. I have always loved my job. I did it when we worked day and night at Bain & Company, I did it running communications at Sapa, I have done it for the last 10 exciting years at Essity and I am convinced I will do it going forward. Fundamental for this love is a strong and clear company culture and a purpose that I stand behind. My next challenges will be at Autoliv, a company with an equally strong, yet different purpose of “Saving more lives”.

All the best to you!
