Who are you?

Juha-Matti Salni, Senior Advisor at Marketing Clinic.

What do you do at MC?

I spend most of my time with our customers, assisting them mainly with Business Strategy related matters. I’m part of MC’s Growth Strategy practice and, as the name suggests, we help our customers to grow. Sometimes this can mean taking bold transformational steps into the unknown which, in turn, makes my job very interesting indeed. Another important part of my job is developing our offering and building thought leadership among business leaders.

Why did you join MC?

First of all, I wanted to find a role where I could work with a broad range of interesting customers and projects, and fully utilise the experience I’ve gained from several international Management and Advisor roles. I also wanted to find a firm that would have the professional capabilities and credibility to both reach the top business executives and, also, deliver world-class results, offering customers real value. MC had the perfect blend of boutique prestige and values I can proudly share, and that made it stand out from the competition.

What was it like to start work at MC?

Absolutely brilliant. I was very excited to make this move and start work but, in all honesty, had some concerns about how easy it would be to integrate into the team and the company during the pandemic when all inductions and team meetings were being held online. I soon noticed, however, that there was no need to be concerned as everything was very well organized and my new colleagues made me feel welcome.

Did MC live up to your expectations?

Absolutely. I was expecting to land on a highly professional boutique consultancy and that’s exactly what MC is like. Although I was already aware of MC’s reputation, especially among C-suite Management, the scale of the customer portfolio and depth of work carried out for customers blew me away. We, literally, get to work with some of the brightest minds in the Nordic business world. This means that not only do we get to challenge ourselves on a daily basis, but we also get to work towards some seriously cutting-edge solutions to overcome our customers’ challenges.

Another thing I’ve noticed since I started here is that MC takes ‘work-life balance’ seriously. We work hard but also set boundaries to make sure we can all flourish in all aspects in life.

Join Juha-Matti at Marketing Clinic and apply to our open position of Business Strategy Manager by 16.5.
