Bo has bachelor’s degree in Communication from the Danish School of Media and Journalism. Before joining Discus Communications, he gained valuable agency experience alongside his studies, and prior to that, he worked in IT sales. He therefore has a strong technical understanding that he puts into play when he transforms technical messages into business-oriented and compelling content.

Bo is a bit of a news junkie. He is very well informed about breaking news, and we often hear him exclaim: “I just read on Twitter that …” So, no matter what is happening in business or at the Danish Parliament, Bo is always one of the first to know. Therefore, he is always looking for ways to work with newsjacking and topicality on behalf of our clients.

His current goal is to run the marathon distance in May 2020 in Copenhagen – a goal he has had for some years, because a knee injury postponed his dream of the magical 42 kilometres. Yet, with his will and dedication, he will undoubtedly succeed.
