About me

Peter Liedstrand

Enthusiastic about digital business and selling with love to people and their behavior, I understand how things tick "Otherwise, it's the small people (the children) and their world that apply."

My working experience within IT began in a start-up company (Online Gaming) that was introduced on the stock exchange and became an international player. Now I work with sales and enabling enterprises to discover the power of business intelligence, which brings clarity, visualisation and strong analytic possibilities. I have worked in both B2C and B2B driven companies and experienced both the challenges and opportunities it implies.

I see myself as an ambitious, committed and driven person who likes to work with challenging tasks. My interest today is to use my experiences by selling, pushing business development and digital transformation. According to employees, managers and friends, I am a social and creative person with a strong willingness to create results.

Being able to combine my knowledge and experience about human behavior and technology is a great interest and at the same time developed because it can be applied in many areas. I constantly develop in different areas to acquire new skills that I can use in my professional and personal life.

MDA program (Humans, Computer Engineering, Work science) at Blekinge institute of technology, focused on the importance of putting the user and the use in focus and study the context. By looking at the context of use, you can create an understanding of the interaction between humans, technology, work science and organisations. This was central to the whole course, the combination of work science and computer science provides a broad range of skills that can be applied in various development fields. Important for the course is that it was closely related to both research such as commercial and industrial life, where the usefulness of new technologies is of great importance. Beside this program I also studied single courses in computer science and system development. 140p
