    Prof. Henrik Totterman is an outstanding professor who always inspired student discussions in his classes and encouraged students to think outside of the box. He is knowledgeable, friendly, and innovative and always made sure that everyone was supported in the best way possible. It was an honor to have him as a professor for the two Innovation classes of my Marketing Master and I would highly recommend him without reservation.

    Experienced business leaders with a busy schedule are a demanding audience not easily flattered. But when Henrik took the floor everyone listened with the sort of attention of a schoolboy first day in school. Henrik does not just inspire people, he creates a unique atmosphere of trust and community around him which is extremely fruitful. Years later I asked Henrik to be my mentor when I was attaining the City of Helsinki leadership program. As a mentor, Henrik was dedicated, structured, and efficient. The time he gave me was really for me. Thanks to Henrik I think more strategically and I am better at analyzing and understanding workplace dynamics and opportunities. I can strongly recommend Henrik as a mentor or trainer for anyone who wants to get forward in their career.

During some of those years, I reported directly to him and found him to be a very inspirational and competent leader, always supportive of my professional development and very committed to improving our admissions processes and overall student experience.

Under his leadership, I learned a lot about policy and management as well as thinking outside of the box. Henrik is a great asset, he possesses a wealth of knowledge about higher education, is a true team player, and formidable colleague and friend.

    It’s rare that you come across standout talent like Henrik. I had the pleasure of meeting him while pursuing my MBA at Hult IBS. He was the Dean of the Boston campus. I was always in awe of Henrik's ability to get people on board with ideas; even people who were initially on completely different pages. As a Dean, he was very approachable and his open-door policy made him an easy-going person who was in close contact with students, understanding our challenges and opinions. As a team member and a leader, Henrik earns my highest recommendation.

    Henrik inspires faculty, students, and administrators alike. He has that rare ability to care about each person and what they want as well as push for excellence. Even when he gives news about unpopular changes people rally behind him because he makes it reasonable and motivating. It was a true pleasure and inspiration working under his supervision and I hope to do so again someday.

    Henrik has an ability that is fairly rare today, and that is to be able to focus on one person at a time, despite surrounding distractions, trying to understand that person's point of view, and on top of it be interested in what he or she has to say! He is serious but at the same time very socially capable and as we all can see here - a networker "par excellence". He is a high-quality person, so if that is what you are looking for... I would truly recommend Henrik.
