We focus on what's happening between people and what makes you the best version of yourself - in the team and as a leader. We create results for the organization by working with human relations. Hence our name: Business Through People - BTP for short.

Our Values


We believe there must always be room for people's different needs, desires, and dreams.

With this, ownership and sustainable success will follow.


We take pride in mastery; therefore, we will never stop learning.

With curiosity and energy, we embrace and develop new ways of thinking.


We know success comes from always challenging ourselves, our team and our clients.

With high ethics and with our client's best interest in mind, we dare to say no.


We strive to build sustainable development by enabling people around us to grow and succeed.

With coaching, listening and commitment, we support people to take on new responsibilities.

Where are we going? 

BTP is growing fast and we are looking for more talented, inspiring people that can join and share our beliefs. At BTP, we are mix of people with different strengths, weaknesses and ambitions. That is a foundation for a strong future and something we embrace! 

We are constantly and relentlessly working on our abilities since we believe that if we stop learning, we start to stagnate. Expanding our own knowledge thresholds is sometimes hard and difficult, but in the end it is what gets us out of bed in the morning!  

We truly believe that we are making a change for the better with the clients we work with. To be able to do that, we need to challenge our clients to take the lead and be the actors in their change. That means we sometimes have to say no to clients if they are not willing to take that lead. That is one way for us to show respect for people.  

Our T3 Enabling process that consists of programs and trainings are built on the principle of servant leadership. We are here to help. That is a daring statement, but this is how we see ourselves. That shows in our daily life where we do not measure on financial success, but how our clients are developing and learn! (We said we are different, right!) 

Where we come from! 

At BTP we are all strongly driven by purpose and values. That is what makes us unique!  

So the values above was not too difficult to put down on paper, because they are fundamental beliefs that we have lived by throughout our carriers. 

John Vellema started BTP back in 2012 with the strong desire to “touch a lot of people” with the TWI programs. His belief is, that this will create true change in people’s lives for the better.  

So when John met Joakim Bjurström back in 2014, they both recognized they were driven by the same purpose. Joakim’s history was a bit different, coming from a more Lean-oriented background and with a strong connection to Toyota Kata.  

The match was perfect, but it took all the way until 2019 before John and Joakim merged their companies, creating the foundation for what BTP is now becoming! The idea for both John and Joakim was to build something that will outlive themselves. To do that they needed to get more people involved in the company. 

In 2020, Fredrik Fjellstedt and Torben Kjær-Christensen joined as Senior Enablers and Linda Caldron came in as back-office support. This was a breakthrough in our history, creating the confidence and ability to expand the company even further!

Where we are now! 

2020 has been a very special year so far for all of us around the world, but it also allowed us at BTP as a team to build solid processes and foundations for our future growth! We are very happy for the great trust we receive from our clients and the strong relationships we build our future on!
