personal info

name: Sampo Pihl E-mail:
I am a leader, but I can also be lead by others. I have seen different sorts of leadership in the past and I have always wanted to be the best possible leader for my team, employees or children. You can never satisfy everyone but when you look in the mirror and you can be proud of yourself without being vain - then you are on the right track. It is always easier to be a leader during the good times, but the real leadership is measured during the more challenging times.
Project management
From the very beginning of my working career I have been working and managing all sorts of projects. I have been involved with TEKES and EU Interreg III C -financed projects, customer projects, implementation projects, R&D -projects and it -projects. Along this journey I have experienced success and failure, good and bad leaders as well as well motivated people and less motivated people. You can always learn something new and enhance the process.
New business development
This is something I really love. Finding new ways of doing things or finding new things to make our life better. I have been involved with different kinds of entrepreneurs and start-ups in the last five years. For me nothing is more satisfying than see people gain their goals and to be able to help them at it. After all, it is nothing but finding solutions to an existing problem or a better solution.
Sales and marketing
This is something I have actually studied at school quite a bit. This is one business area that is constantly changing and developing at the moment very fast. My “twisted” mind and good sense of humour has helped me through the years in this business area. Digitalization and human behaviour has changed sales and marketing. One could say, that when its printed its already outdated. The world is changing fast and it gets more difficult to reach the right people, that just the reason why this is so interesting.
