Elena Wallén Björkenäng

Certified Professional Facilitator

Development, curiosity, and creativity are my key drivers. I love to support others development and get inspired by having the opportunity to learn and grow myself, which I do every day at work. Another focus area is sustainability where I’m keen to explore how we with changing our behaviours can contribute to a better world.

I have more than 20 years of experience from facilitating change, leadership and team development in many different industries and sectors and in many different roles. As a professional facilitator I aim at creating active participation and ownership, where differences are allowed to flourish. With a clear focus on the value the group wants to achieve, I guide them through the process using creative and agile methods and tools.

My background

I have a background in Finance and worked in Pharmaceuticals for 12 years as a Controller as well as Coach and Facilitator, supporting global project teams in their development. Change management is another theme in my career, where I have supported organisations, teams and individuals through change, both in public and private sectors and in global and local contexts.

The last 10 years I have expanded my academic competency in Behaviours Science, Pedagogy, Leadership and Sustainability. My agile training I got from working in the IT-sector as a Business Developer and Change Manager in large change projects.
