Change by Design Circle is facilitated by the founders of ViaDesign Ida Vesterdal and Sune Kjems.
We both have solid experience in strategic change using Design Thinking, Transformation Leadership and Wisdom Traditions. In recent years we’ve completed certifications in sustainability and organisational and personal transformation.
Our common motivation is our passion for using our knowledge, our tools and ourselves as a lever for personal leadership development and sustainable organisational development.
We believe that holding a space for reflection, sparring, and sharing the ups and downs that come with leading change is fundamental to succeeding with the transformations as well as learning and growing from the experience as an individual leader.
We know from personal experience how tough and exciting it can be to make sustainable change happen – but we promise you it’s going to be an adventure ;-)
