Director of Conventions at Visit Oslo
With over 20 years in the hospitality and event industry, I am an international experienced leader with expertise within developing new business opportunities connecting people across the world. With enthusiasm and dedication, I deliver with a commitment to drive results for not only my own destination but as a global leader determined to develop the future of our industry. For the past 4 years as Head of VisitOSLO CVB, I have developed and expanded my team to drive sales and increase our destination’s global position with successful results. Since joining the ICCA Board of Directors in 2015, I have gained valuable industry insights and a strong will to continue to use my influence to shape our industry and share my knowledge to help other destinations succeed. Often asked to be a speaker at events, I enjoy communicating on stage capturing the audience’s attention for our common mission. Besides being passionate about the meetings industry, I am married and mother of two teenagers living just outside Oslo, in Son. When not promoting my destination commuting between cities, I am often seen gardening. What keeps me pumping? The cultural diversity, connections, gaining knowledge, energy, opportunities and priveledge being part of our global industry. I am humble and honoured to be nominated for this prestigious award, and grateful for the recognition this award nomination shows for my contribution to our developing industry. Sincerely Thank you!
