Meet the ManageMagazine Team
HI, I’m Margot Gordon, the Editor of ManageMagazine.
I live in Canada north of Toronto where I love being outdoors hiking, cycling, canoeing, windsurfing, SUPing, skiing, and snowboarding. Vibeke and I have been friends for 28 years. We have shared many unforgettable adventures, from canoe tripping in the Ontario wilderness to traipsing through the Royal Palace in Copenhagen.
My educational background is an honors degree in English and Anthropology from York University, in Canada. Once out of school, I worked as a desktop publisher and an office manager at Tony Gordon Ltd., my family’s busy Toronto service bureau.
Our clients included some of Canada’s largest publishing houses. When moving up north I began a profession which brings me great joy: teaching children and inspiring in them a love of learning and a curiosity as great as my own. Those of you who have submitted articles to us here at ManageMagazine already know me; I am in charge of the entire editing process relating to article submissions. I look forward to working with you.
Throughout three decades I’ve worked with conceptualizing, planning, and executing culture and music events.
As a prior managing director and commercial executive at one of the most popular Danish music festivals, Smukfest, – I have significant experience in making collaborative-advantage partnerships with sponsors, co-creative partners, and VIPs.
Music festivals and biking are among my favorite activities.
Merete Lindstrøm, Journalist.
My interest in ManageMagazine is based on three aspects. A solid work experience in the private sector of sales and marketing. Management experience within the travel industry, and in a political organization. And last but not least, studies in organization and management including situational management and sales-oriented management.
In my work, I have come across several points of interest. What does good management mean for a workplace and employee motivation, and which theories can be used to create the optimum ratio to achieve company strategies and goals? As a journalist, I am motivated to convey that knowledge widely and easily accessible to leaders around the world.
My access to journalism and dissemination is based on news media experience. In news, it is important to find the right angle, make it precise and to the point with only a few lines or tv minutes available, so the reader or viewer does not get confused.
At ManageMagazine, it is about communicating heavy academic knowledge in a language that will maintain the reader’s interest and transform the research into relevant useful tools and theories. Furthermore, it is important that valuable knowledge does not get lost in the process. That is my prerogative in ManageMagazine.
Hi, my name is Vibeke Vad Baunsgaard. I am the Founder and CEO of ManageMagazine. It’s a great joy working to help change organizations, work lives, and personal lives for the better.
Our team is committed to sharing the abundance of invaluable research and knowledge that sits unused and often inaccessible in expensive journals, research databases, and in the minds of successful organizational practitioners. By sharing expertise, we create individual, organizational, and societal improvements and success.
I have a degree in sociology from the University of Copenhagen and a PhD in Organization Studies and Innovation Management from Copenhagen Business School. I am presently an Honorary Research Associate at The University of Technology Sydney.
I enjoy discussions that move ‘things’ and idea development with open-minded people. I also enjoy theory development, studying organizational practice, nice dinners in great company – skiing, reading, writing, and listening to music of almost all genres.
The encouragement i have received from people who share my sense of purpose is absolutely heartwarming
This is our team at ManageMagazine. In collaboration with readers, co-creative partners, and the Advisory Board – we work to attain healthy workplaces where employees feel valued, and where leadership drives engagement.
