“He (Knut Roppestad) is an experienced, wise and competent counselor for me as CEO in Norway Health Tech.

The organization and the cluster I manage is constantly evolving. Knut’s contribution of competent organizational understanding gives me a sense of confidence and also a “safe place” to think out load with little consequence but to explore my options. This feels both fruitful and necessary – and it is highly recommendable!”

               Kathrine Myhre

CEO Norway Health Tech

“Eirik Lima (AG Johnsen) was a project manager for the implementation of Aker Energy’s HRM system that would support the company’s growth. With the objective to enable efficiency in people processes.

Personnel training sessions were conducted for employees in Norway and train-the-trainer approach for the Accra organisation to secure capability building locally. The project was delivered according to agreed time and cost. Eirik’s flexibility in his approach, his ability to adjust to rapid changes in the organisation and work well with Aker Energy personnel, were critical factors in the success of the project.”

Claudia Antwi-Adjei Hedegaard

Head of Organizational Development, Aker Energy

“Knut is knowledgeable, clear and challenging at the same time as he is friendly in his approach. He combines common sense with a qualified perspective on management and leadership. The best recommendation I can give him is that I have not grown tired of his services and counseling even though we have worked together for many years.”
