Japanese knives are famous all over the world for being invincible. No other countries’ knives can measure up, really. They have the sharpness, elegance, strength and durability that are not to be found in any other knives, nor any other products, anywhere. Though… wait. Actually, though not a product, there is one person whom can be compared to that unique sharpness, elegance, strength and durability. Her name is Marie Söderqvist and she is a Corporate Executive and media personality. Being so edgy is of course an invaluable asset in writing, cutting budgets or cutting through whatever it may be. It can be a certainly dangerous tool as well, especially in front of pigs or lambs and such personalities.
Both of these have gone through highly advanced processes to become cutting edge. It doesn’t just happen over a day. The knives for instance are rubbed for a googol years (or so) between the finest of sandpapers and other things before reaching perfection. And Marie has been rubbed between the walls of several leading institutions in Swedish society: Svenska Dagbladet, Timbro, Expressen and some others which I could tell you but then I would have to kill you – and now United Minds where she has settled as CEO and owns a cut of the company. When I say she has settled there I don’t mean she has become complacent and satisfied and tired of exploring new knowledge, higher goals and bigger money. That’s not what I’m saying. I’m rather saying United Minds is her base camp and from there she is doing all that; striving for bigger success. And it’s going quite alright to say the least. The company is growing fast and furious and the things they do are impressive, best described as a combo between the operations of Brookings and the CIA, though in a commercial environment. My estimate is that five years is the amount of time required before she has been able to annex all of the European business intelligence market on behalf of United Minds.
What more can I say? She is the number 1 to be found as far as I am concerned if you’re in search for a leader. As a boss, she is tough, fair, practical and none the less generous. She even pays me for this.
