Swedish Institute
- Sustainable Leadership and Management Programme, SIMP Africa, and SIMP Asia

HopeComms has collaborated with the Swedish Institute on multiple occasions, including lectures on Inclusive Communications for international visiting journalists. 

Visit their website 

The two collaborations on SIMP Africa and SIMP Asia involved creating tailor-made training material and leading/facilitating workshops on inclusive and sustainable leadership, diversity, and gender equality, for the SIMP program participants, that is, for The Swedish Institute Management Programme.


The SIMP programs are leadership programs for business leaders, decision-, opinion- and change-makers with high levels of influence for sustainable business practices in partner countries. The goal is to strengthen sustainable development, gender equality, economic development, and inclusion of diverse populations, as well as create important business relationships with Sweden. 

HopeComms studied the background of the 50 or so participants from various countries at each SIMP program to develop tailor-made materials for the workshops on inclusive, sustainable leadership and business development and led the interactive workshops with each group during the delegations' studies in Sweden.

Ruben Brunsveld, ENACT

We invited Viktoria as an expert speaker and workshop facilitator for executive training programs in sustainable business for African and Asian business leaders. She delivered sessions on intersectionality, gender equality,  equal opportunities - and their importance for responsible business development.


Thanks to her strong expertise, in combination with her international background and strong communication skills, she successfully facilitated interactive discussions across cultural lines on highly sensitive topics.


Her personal and respectful approach was highly appreciated by the participants and one of the many reasons why I gladly recommend her for any leadership training that focuses on personal development and/or sustainable business.
