Education: MSc in Industrial Engineering/ Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)

Trainee with: Ove Fredheim, CMO Business in Telenor Norway

What was the most exciting project you worked on as a trainee in Telenor?

As a management trainee, I was involved in a lot of exciting assignments. In Business Norway, we have an ambition to be the customer’s preferred partner when they need to digitalise their business processes. Among other things, we have numerous branch verticals such as health, retail and aquaculture, as well as new services which are enabling us to focus on new fields. One of the things I have been working with is ‘Smarte Bygg’ or Smart Buildings. This work enables me to really see how new Internet of Things (IOT) and analysis services can help to achieve this ambition, with Telenor’s network as the foundation.

I also think it was really exciting to work with strategy at divisional level. You really get an understanding of the whole picture, and gain a unique insight into what is important for the various departments when decisions are made.

What will you work with in Telenor, now that the training programme has finished?

I have now started as Marketing Manager in Products and Marketing in Business. My main responsibility there is APIs.
