We create visible results

Career Coach is a professional coaching house that helps businesses generate visible results through their most important asset –their leaders and employees.

Career Coach contributes proactively to development processes by focussing on professional interaction, execution and follow-up. We team up with associated partners who provide a business-oriented approach and focus. This way we ensure results in both delimited and more comprehensive development programmes.

Career Coach consists of two equity partners, Dorte Sommer and Benny Guld, who both have backgrounds as CEOs and business developers in knowledge-intensive industries. The partnership combines two strong experience bases with a pragmatic and results-oriented approach to coaching in knowledge-intensive industries such as the IT, pharmaceutical and life science industries.

Dorte Sommer
In her job as executive coach, Dorte has worked with management and business development for more than 15 years – her core competence as coach lies within pharmaceutical and life science.

Dorte holds a degree in economics and has worked as CEO in Casall Danmark. She has also run her own business and has several management board positions behind her.

Using her many years' experience from management in the Danish and international business sectors, Dorte supports the process from goal setting to execution, implementation and follow-up.
