Christoffer has experience in banking, professional services, defence, education, NHS and homelessness.

Christoffer has long been a proponent of the social model of disability, from his days creating art projects as a form of inclusive activism, touring Europe and South America. Christoffer uses creative tools to facilitate coaching conversations, as well as technology.
Christoffer believes we can all work at our best, but it sometimes requires a mind-set shift and strategies that are a close match with how we think. He also believes we need to be able to navigate and discuss the often unspoken limiting rules, behaviours and environment we may face in today’s workplace. When Christoffer is coaching at his best, he is like a terrier, friendly but rigorous about making sure people know what they are doing and why they are doing it, checking and tweaking to make sure that outcomes are making a difference.
