Mogens has led the Talent agenda for some of the biggest companies in the world such as Novartis Consumer Health, Nestlé, Allianz and The LEGO Group.
Mogens is passionate about helping people and organisations to unlock their potential for growth, which is very much in the spirit of BMEI’s mission and values.
Part of what Mogens brings to BMEI is his core belief system that all people have unique talents, and his Talent Management approach is therefore an “inclusive” one, where all people in an organisation are considered to be Talents. “In my experience, the most impactful approach to Talent Management is a Development oriented approach, where there is a consistent and transparent understanding across the organisation of what dimensions are used to Identify, Assess and Develop Talents, and it is key that these are integrated in the core Talent processes from “hire to retire”. “
Mogens holds an Executive Masters in Human Resources Leadership from Bocconi/Ruttgers Universities, and is currently certified as an accredited CRF coach from Henley Business School.
