Icelandic society can be difficult for outsiders to access or understand, particularly if they do not speak Icelandic. The phrase “what happens in Iceland, stays in Iceland” is very frequently true, if for no other reason but that the language and culture barriers keep foreigners firmly out of the loop.
I have many years’ experience of conveying and interpreting Icelandic news and current affairs to non-Icelanders. With my full grasp of Icelandic, my deep insight into Icelandic society, and my understanding of what it is like to be an outsider, I am in a unique position to explain Icelandic affairs to anyone seeking information or improved understanding of Icelandic affairs.
My consulting work has taken various forms. I have helped authors write books by researching and fact-checking, I have worked on a retainer basis to monitor an aspect of Icelandic society in which my client was interested, I have met with individuals and groups to give talks and answer questions, and I have corresponded with individuals to help them gain a better understanding of a particular issue.
I also answer general questions about Iceland via email for a standard fee.
I exercise the utmost discretion and confidentiality in all my work.
