Cecilia Alwin – Leadership 9.0 in Sweden


Cecilia Alwin is a dedicated lecturer and educator, passionate about people and our differences and how they affect our communication. “If I broadcast on Radio 1 and you listen to Radio 3, then it doesn’t matter how much I turn up the volume…”

Cecilia Alwin has been active in sales and marketing – mainly in the media world – for the past 20 years. She has worked in private, municipal and publicly listed companies holding various positions, both with and without personnel management responsibilities, and she has also been a member of management groups and other decision-making bodies.

In 2016, she became a “Fellow” of the Global Leadership Foundation.


Cecilia has always been interested in the differences between people and why we send and receive “on different frequencies” and what this leads to. “How come that others don’t understand what I mean when I’m making myself so clear?” She has a degree in economics, and is a certified ICF coach and an internationally trained Enneagram trainer (from The Enneagram Institute in New York).

Cecilia is buzzing with energy and likes using humor to point to our differences. She teaches and lectures on communication, leadership, personality types, reactive versus proactive patterns, teams, conflicts and decisions. She loves sharing new insights, “eureka moments” and tools that you can apply right away.
