Find Torsten on Bech-Bruun, LinkedIn, and TwitterAnother aspect of the job is actually to insource, as I said, the ideas from the clients and really trying to develop the ideas both with the clients but also with the lawyers.And then we have a selection process where we actually take these ideas, cultivate them, and figure out: is it a viable product? Can we make it work? Can we put it into operation and actually sell it to the clients? Can we, conceptualize it? Can we make, revenue?. from this offering? And this is really in close collaboration with our head of business development and also our CIO.Because I can only take part of it, and when it goes to sales and marketing and into operations, it's really important for me to have the head of business development and his team pitch in with all the knowledge they have regarding conceptualizing and also putting it into operation.
