Holmquist Consult

International advisor

My mission is to globally enhance the role of libraries as pivotal centers for learning and community engagement. I have planned and hosted conferences, and I am a renowned keynote speaker and workshop host as well. With extensive experience as a library director in both Denmark and New Zealand, I have spearheaded innovative projects like the digital learning initiative ’23 Mobile Things’ and the collaborative effort ‘Buy India a Library.’ I also have experience in library advocacy at a European level through the Library Advocacy Lab. I am recognized as a Library Journal Mover & Shaker.

Currently, I lead Holmquist Consult, offering my expertise as an international advisor in library, learning, and leadership to help libraries and other cultural and learning institutions worldwide. My recent endeavors include a national initiative focused on digital skills for the Danish Union of Librarians, and I am working on a global learning project aimed at fostering community and learning through library engagement.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss how we can collaborate.
