I have been fortunate to work with many interesting customers, projects, assignments and training, see below. For some assignments, I can not mention the client because of confidentiality.
seminars and lectures
I conducted many seminars and lectures in various forums. Usually the content is related to China, sometimes also about riding bicycle around the world. See pictures below.
language teaching, mandarin
I have taught over 40 private students and had a number of courses for groups. Many of the students have after the studies moved to China for work, or as spouse.
During the summer of 2013 I designed, together with e-learning company lurn (now knowly), a pilot course for students at Chalmers University of Technology, "Beginners Course in Mandarin Chinese for Engineers".
I have been teacher and examiner since the course started in autumn 2013. The course content is tailored for engineers who plan internships or jobs in China. In addition to language training I also included lessons about Chinese culture and living and working in China.
I have conducted a number of projects in China, see below examples:
Extensive industrial project that involved the construction of factories for three Sandvik companies. The project's steering committee was located in Sweden. All contractors, suppliers, design firms, etc were Chinese companies. In addition to responsibility for planning, budget and quality, I also had frequent contacts with the Chinese authorities.
Sweden's pavilion at the world exhibition EXPO2010 in Shanghai. I was responsible for the procurement, construction, and technical start-up. The job included, besides of control and monitoring of time schedule, quality and budget, also many meetings with authorities, experts and sponsors.
Construction of waterworks in China. Coaching of existing project management.
