Never do busy days prevent me anymore from living the life that I desire

36% lower level of stress

The Big Book

of Sustainable & Desirable Worklife Strategies

One of our major accomplicements at the moment is that we are writing a book about how to create sustainable and desirable worklife strategies. Fortunately, we are not writing it alone hence our amazing clients such as  Novo Nordisk , Ørsted, CHR. Hansen, Energiøerne, OurUnits and Universal Robots are writing it with us. In the book you will meet executive leadership and team members who elaborate about the transformation they have been going through while working with new ways of working in collaboration with FUTUREWORKS Cph.

The book is providing you with the FURTUREWORKS framework, client cases, the experimental tools and leadership advice.


FUTUREWORKS was founded in 2019 by three great friends who loved spending time together. We called our worklife ‘the fun side’. We were all thought-leaders in the fields of new ways of working, innovation, digitalization and exponential technologies. We started a quest together where we wanted to find out how to create everyday work-life magic. Through massive research of +100 innovative companies and innovative individuals, four day work-weeks, four hour work-weeks and other inspiring new ways of working we developed the ground stones of what is the FUTUREWORKS framework today.

Living the life at its fullest lead two of the three partners on to new and exciting life paths. Now FUTUREWORKS is lead solely by the inspirational Susanne Odgaard, who in her earlier carrier has built innovation agencies in both Copenhagen, New York and Barcelona working with some of the most innovative companies and individuals of the world.

FUTUREWORKS has its office at the Charlottenlund Castle campus, just 7km from the city center of Copenhagen. It provides a great environment for off-sites, workshops and coaching with the immersive interior of the castle and the magical surroundings of forrest and seaside.
