I have met so many amazing people who have achieved unbelievable things that I have come to firmly believe that anything is achievable to anyone; the limiting factor is our own imagination. Of course truly great things are never done by individuals alone, they are done by people touching the lives of other people. Because we are all connected, what we do sends ripples through the system that causes other people to react, and through this ripple effect, each of us hold the power to make incredibly big changes in the world.
Simply put I believe that we have a responsibility to contribute to the greater good of all. I like to always aim for being better, and I like to think that the sum of all my actions is a net positive. That when the end comes I have helped create ripples that made the world a better place – this goal is what gives meaning to my life.
Here are a few other things I also believe in:

My old boss used to say “Emil, the job is easy it is the people that make it difficult!” or sometimes he would say “The job is easy, it is the people that make it interesting!” Well those of you who know me will know that I don’t care much for easy, I like a difficult and interesting challenge – and I love working with people. My colleagues are what motivates me, not the business, the product or the profits, but the people. Nothing makes me more proud than to bring out the best in others and see them succeed beyond their own expectations – that's what leadership is all about, and I love it.
"Emil is a very independent and driven person that I really appreciated working in my team as the General Manager for Nilorn Shanghai ltd. He was responsible for the full operation and from a very small company at the beginning did he really develop the operation to become successful and profitable. One of his large talents is that he is taking care of and support his staff members and are stimulating and motivating them in order to make their utmost in their position. Emils is reliable and honest and I have the deepest respect for his work at us in Nilorn."
“I had the pleasure of working with Emil during his time with Nilorn Shanghai. As I was based in HK, responsible for Nilorn East Asia, we were lucky to find someone with Emil's enthusiasm for a challenge combined with his great eye for detail and determination. He was largely responsible for the development of the Business from employing 3 staff in a rented office space to one with a turnover of over RMB20m in less than 4 years. In this role, Emil impressed all those that met him throughout the Nilorn Group, not least his own staff in Shanghai,and our Customer and Supply Base. I was always profoundly grateful for his help and determination and friendship.”
“I worked with Emil at my time as an Event Manager at the Danish Chamber of Commerce while he served as Vice Chairman of the board.
I like working with Emil, who is very professional and well structured on the board. Also, he is always creative, and brings lots of new ideas. I believe the chamber will grow even more with Emil's effort in the future.”
