More about me
I’m a training professionalist and especially focused on online training. I’m always looking for new tools and methods to organise trainings or new ways to facilitate. I have studied administrative sciences and I’m also qualified to be aheadmaster. I’m experienced in developing further Finnish municipalities and social entreprenership. I’m specialized in creating trainings and courses online in different forms and facilitating online trainings. I’m calm but possessed with a certain vision: changing the world by one pixel at a time.
What makes you light up?
I get excited about creating something new. If there's a possibility of trying something that hasn't been tried before, I have a real difficulty of saying no to the possibility. I also get excited once you I've tried something that I believe is original and useful for others as well, and someone buys the product.
How would you describe yourself as a trainer?
I want to plan my trainings to fit to the audience at hand, meaning every training is different. I get obsessed of who will be sitting at the audience (or for me normally: behind the screen) and what to they actually need to get out of my training.
What do your colleagues say about Ulla?
Ulla is someone who strives for getting things done and results out there in the world. But not only that: she is pure power combined with amazingly creative thinking and being! In short: she is lots of fun to work with.
