Consultant Kirsten Andersen owns the company Mnemosyne Kurser & Forlag. She has been self-employed since 1991. Prior to that, she worked for the professional organisation Danish Bacon & Meat Council for eight years with tasks relating to the secret a riat and information. She facilitates “Better Meeting Culture”, “Mind Map Techniques”, “Presentation and Argumentation”, “Presentation Techniques for Experienced Mediators” and “Negotiation Techniques”. Some of the courses are conducted as open-enrolment courses through Mannaz. She has always been interested in how to achieve a good balance between work, family and leisure. With an interesting job, a husband, and two children born in 1998 and 2001, she has plenty of opportunities for following her own advice.

Consultant and illustrator Claus Bekker Jensen owns the company Visuel Vision. Prior to becoming self-employed, he worked as a manager of the Danish railway company DBS’s education department. He facilitates “Plan Your Own Work“, “Effective Meetings”, “Presentation Techniques”, “Visual Presentation Techniques”, “Mind Mapping” and “Performance Appraisals”. As an illustrator, he helps companies translate their messages into a language in the form of drawings, metaphors, symbols, etc. that are inspiring and easy to understand. He has four wonderful grandchildren, a part-time job as a visual artist, and a croft in the Swedish countryside, which helps counterbalance his busy work life.

Consultant Mariann Bach Nielsen owns the company 2vejs kommunikation. She has been self-employed since 1999. Prior to that, she worked as a facilitator and a consultant, first in primary schools and, later on, in the professional organisation Danish Bacon & Meat Council and the retail chain Netto. She facilitates “Plan Better - Get More Time”, “Write Better Texts”, “Presentation – You’re On”, “Note- and Minute-Taking Techniques” and “Mind Map Techniques”. Her focus is on translating theories into simple, useful techniques – and inspiring others to achieve good balance in life. She works in a goal-orientated way on using the techniques from this book to make room for all good things in her life: her husband, her children, her grandchildren, her family, her friends, riding her road bike – and, not least, her job as a freelancer.
