Anders is one of the sharpest young minds available. He is vital to any company looking to place itself into a position of future strength.
We recently worked with Anders to help us explore what the future of rugby may look like. We found him to be a very structured thinker, a great facilitator, and committed to driving a good outcome. I’d certainly recommend Anders to any company looking to put itself into a position of future strength.
