CASE: As a newly formed unit, the department wanted to create a distinct identity and communicate this identity clearly. The process included workshops, stakeholder interviews and formulation of new identity.
Through the workshops and interviews with internal and external suppliers and partners, Roar helped us gain an understanding of how the department is perceived by others and how we perceive ourselves. We now use this understanding in our communication project.

CASE: The Section for Sensory and Consumer Science needed guidance on developing a research group identity as a basis for creating a coherent research strategy for the future. Particularly, the section needed to identify core research themes, scientific competences, needs for infrastructure and internal organization.
Roar facilitated the process in an effective and pleasant way, addressing our needs and showing us how to think differently, addressing both the internal connections to the Department and outreach to stakeholders.
With a PhD in identity creation in businesses, Roar was well suited to lead the process, gaining respect for his high level of knowledge and understanding of the academic world. The few meetings with Roar ended in a concrete and final form for our group identity, with many leads on how to connect and consolidate the research strategy to this identity. It was certainly worth the investment for our group. Thanks for a high level of professionalism.

CASE: As a newly formed administration unit, the members needed consulting in the process of forming, establishing and developing a well-functioning team. We helped the client facilitate and lead the teambuilding for the core administration team.
We at EY Nordics have good experiences in making use of Roar Bovim's services as a speaker and facilitator for the Nordic team building activities. His insight into team dynamics and the stages new teams go through until the members function as a well-integrated group has been very valuable for my team. Roar is an entertaining and informed speaker who listens and goes the extra mile to provide the customer with a positive experience.
