The Team

To make something like this happen, many things need to fall into place. This could not be achieved without the hard work of a few individuals and the support of others who believe in the project.

Take a closer look below to get to know them!

Trine Tamm

Trine Tamm

This unrivaled Excel master originates from somewhere in the mystical forests of E-stonia. This is the starting point for her numerous continental visits - a habit inseparable from her business woman persona! Whenever once in a blue moon she happens to be home, she dedicates her days studying the strange quirks of the human condition through the lenses of political science and psychology. Organizations she's been part of are hard to count on one hand and she's all about learning and gaining new experiences to beat her yesterday self. But in case you can't find her in a classroom or a conference room, you should check out theater stages where she is singing, dancing or acting. Here is our budget overlord, Trine!

Michael Elver

Michael Elver

Born and raised in the rural realms of Denmark, there are few logistical challenges this team member can’t (or haven’t already!) solve. With an adventurous and non-conforming spirit, he can turn any stranger into a friend in the blink of an eye, and has the somewhat unorthodox habit of turning regular cups of tea into delicious vegetable soup. On the other hand, he’s the unsung champion of mainstream culture, being the unofficial and self-appointed presidents of YFU’s Taylor Swift and Disney fan clubs. Business student and spontaneous sportslover by day, the unofficial house elf and protective spirit of YFU Denmark’s legendary mansion by night, are but some of the crucial competencies brought to the NBLC table. Others include: warm hugs, a result-oriented mindset and unceasing dad jokes to lighten up any mood. Here he is, our logistics superhero: Michael!

Ieva Silickaite

Ieva Silickaite

Ieva is the NBLC team’s double agent, with roots in the urban heart of rainy Lithuania (the name LITerally comes from the word rain) and currently dispatched on a classified mission to investigate the peculiar ways of the modern day Danish vikings. This gives her the ability to penetrate the depths of both the Nordic and the Baltic soul, something which makes her uniquely qualified for the course. A Master’s Degree in Corporate Communication equips her with the official power to claim that what we say matters, even when nothing has been said. When this communication bee is not busy planning on how to change the world with the power of words, you can most likely watch her being busy on the dance floor shaking it off to Latin rhythms. With the gift of being able to brighten even the darkest room with a wide smile from ear to ear, we give you our questionable quotes queen, Ieva!

Erik Sundberg

Erik Sundberg

The origin story of the twisted mastermind behind this course begins in a totally innocent way in an idyllic suburb north-east of Sweden’s capital. But through his transformative journeys touching at least two of the world’s four corners, a devious plan started to form in his mind… to infuse the world with better leadership. When not busy plotting evil YFU plans, this knowledge-thirsting engineering student can be found grudging his recently lost 56-day Duolingo streak learning French, spending an inordinate amount of time trying to optimize his Spotify Discovery Weekly algorithm or dreaming away about sailing. If you need a book recommendation, go to the nerdiest bookworm of the group, who always has a life-changing read up his sleeve! If you need a jolt of energy, make sure to plug yourself into whatever charging station this Duracell bunny has hooked up to. Ladies and gentlemen, we present you NBLC’s navigator and wayfinder, Erik!
