MEET OUR TEAM
Our team includes the professionals who were instrumental to the introduction and development of the field of intimacy coordination in the Nordic region. We work independently through our companies and operate in a specific code of ethics, while keeping the work place safe, friendly and professional. Our intimacy coordinators meet the expertise, training and experience as well as the additional requirements as outlined by SAG-AFTRA’s Standards and Protocols for the Use of Intimacy Coordinators. The field is constantly developing and we continue gaining additional skills by undertaking ongoing training and transferring knowledge globally with a network of Intimacy Coordinators in EU/UK, Canada, USA and South Africa.
