Having been in the games and esports industries for a long time in several roles, Marie has vast experience and a solid understanding for most topics within it. She also has a great deal of experience being interviewed herself, having starred in  countless livestreamed interviews, podcasts and articles. In addition, Marie received PR training in her past whilst working on game studios and being an official spokesperson. Combined, her understanding for what makes a topic interesting as well as how to conduct an interview makes her a great host for fireside chats. Thus far, she has had the chance to conduct several chats onstage at game conferences, interviewing legendary game creators, fast rising industry stars and even politicians. Contact Marie below to book her for a fireside chat or keep browsing to see a sample.


Briefing & introduction

Marie gets introduced to the guests, often via email, and aligns in the main focus for the interview.


Marie researches the person and topic more in detail to come up with a draft of relevant questions.


Marie forms initial questions and bounces these against the guest and/or potential PR rep in a call or email exchange. Marie takes note of which questions to not ask, and which have interesting answers.


Based on the insights from the pre-interview, Marie chooses sub topics, curates her questions and forms an order to ask them in to create storylines.

Marie sends the final draft to the guest and potential PR rep for approval and preparation. She also prints them on her speaker cards and is ready for the live show.

"Kept it organic"

I really enjoyed participating in a panel led by Marie at Gamesforum Barcelona. The preparations she made together with us panelists were awesome, and I felt prepared and comfortable going into the session. During the panel, Marie also led the discussion very well, keeping it organic. I would definitely love to be in Marie's sessions again in the future!

"Wonderful host"

Marie was a wonderful host during Playcon’s 2022 GameDev & Esports Summit. She brings with her years of experience and it shows in the insights given during the show.

We’re very happy to have had Marie for this role, she did her research well and made sure to gather as much information as possible about our speakers which showed when she introduced them on stage.

Marie also acted as moderator on a number of panels and leveraged her industry expertise skillfully to ask relevant questions and ensure the discussions were insightful.

Director, Playcon


Marie was hosting at Nordic Game Conference and Nordic Game Awards gala 2022, and did a fantastic job with both. She was very easy to work with and her communication and preparation for the event was excellent.

Once live, Marie captivated the audience with her humor and charisma and showed great improvisation skills and ‘cool’. No matter what situation was being thrown at her – technical delays, speakers arriving late or award mix-ups, she handled them like a pro and made sure to always keep the crowd entertained. We are looking forward to work with Marie again at future events.

"A complete professional"

Working with Marie was a pleasure! A complete professional.

Marie moderated two panels at Gamesforum Barcelona, on cross-platform gaming and fostering game economies. Marie was well researched and prepared for both topics and worked closely with our panellists to ensure they were comfortable. Setting up calls and sending out questions well ahead of time so panellists could prepare.

When on stage Marie seemlessly engaged the audience and brought them into the discussion. The panel felt organic and was enjoyable to watch!

I look forward to working with Marie again on future Gamesforum events! Her questions cards were awesomely designed too!

"Great job in all aspects"

For LiU Game Conference 2022, we were looking for a experienced and internationally recognized host and brought in Marie. Seeing her immediately reach out to all speakers to prepare for their sessions, we could quickly tell that our stage would be in good hands, and it gave our whole team a sense of calm and confidence.

At the conference itself, Marie showed her versatility and did a great job in all aspects - from leading a fireside chat, to moderating a panel with senior members, to leading Q&A for each session and of course the hosting itself. We received a lot of good feedback and were very happy with the result.

Our goal to grow our conference was achieved and we reached a new high as a conference organizer, much thanks to Marie.
