I AM AN AGENT OF CHANGE
I am a program and project manager and life coach, an expert in change management, especially regarding digital channels, internet, intranet and tools.
I have over 45 year’s experience working in corporations, in the UK, Australia and Finland. Most of that time has been spent on change projects involving technology – and over that time I have learned the common thread on a company’s ability to change is not technology, but people:
how teams work,
what motivates people,
the impact on company culture
…and, of course, CHANGE is a constant reality in life.
WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?
I offer services for businesses (teams) as well as for individuals (people).

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY ABOUT ME
Graham has worked for Hiab from March 2017 to June 2018 with a variety of assignments. His latest task was to act as project manager for Hiab´s global ISO re-certification program commenced in October 2017 and closed in July 2018. The project was by nature complex with a very tight timeline, close to mission impossible. The set up worked across all Hiab’s business lines and also involved external advisors and notification bodies. Graham exercised excellent coordination and communication skills and he showed extraordinary professionalism completing the project meeting all set targets and deliverables. In my opinion as project owner, Graham reaches his full potential in the mid-layer of strategic targets and operational execution when project team members need frequent support and guidance. He provides clarity and structure to complex processes.
Graham is a great communicator and project manager. At home with ambiguity, quick to grasp details but always looking at the big picture. Business, customer and stakeholder focussed and adaptable. He has a strong results orientation, especially strong with change management and getting results delivered through people and teams.
Graham is an excellent facilitator and organiser – with a strong customer focus and plenty of experience. If you want to get something done, with lasting results, I can recommend Graham.
“Graham is visionary, energetic and goal oriented. He has strong facilitation skills with an ability to bring people together”
“Very useful experience, led to clear goal setting (and achievements) but also made me aware of aspects of life to be thankful for.”
Graham’s life coaching sessions were a great help when I wanted to clarify my business and life goals and dreams. The coaching made me step out of my comfort zone, and that truly is the area where the magic happens. The tasks Graham gave me helped me in my personal change process. The sessions genuinely helped me explore my different career and life opportunities. Graham inspired me to expand my career and life vision of what is possible and to take courageous challenges to move to the direction that I wanted. I can warmly recommend Graham as a life coach. He’s very warm and experienced. Also he’s a very good listener.
Through Amberbuzz Life Coaching I now have the tools I need to steer my career based my values, not just for the sake of doing it!
Last week I had an interesting meeting with the CEO of D11 Helsinki, Heikki Leskinen. We discussed several topics including the Millennial Board, and as part of that discussion Heikki asked me “what is my why?”. An obvious question, one that I had tried to address in my first blog post. But being on the spot, being asked that question, and being the slow thinker that I am, I stumbled with my answer – and realised that I haven’t really defined my “why” well enough. Why do I want to coach and mentor? Why do I want to help people […]
In January this year, I “signed up” with Zinzino, a health business. Zinzino’s brand promise is to “Inspire Change in life” and I can state that Zinzino is changing my life. I feel fantastic! Zinzino produces and sells high-quality health products. Their main product is Balance Oil, a blend of fish oil, olive oil and other additives designed to balance the ratio of Omega6:Omega3 in your body. The product is unique, not only in the blend of ingredients but also because it is supported by a Balance Test, a blood test that measures the quality of fats in your body […]
I started Amberbuzz in 2009 with the mission – to bridge the gap between Digital Agencies and Businesses. A lot has changed since then – the Digital Marketing business has matured and digitalisation has expanded to be almost everywhere. I’ve changed too. Having spent the last few years in permanent employment, firstly with Vacon and then Danfoss, and more recently, for the last 18 months with Cargotec – I have a much more holistic view of how the world is developing and what my role could be. So now I’m fully focused on delivering Amberbuzz services and creating this new […]
