The Frenchman Alex King came to Sweden in his late teens, after his family was split up by a series of tragic events. He studied economy at the university, and in two years learned how to speak and write Swedish fluently. After that, he took a job in a Swedish bank. After being asked if he wanted to conduct internal trainings, he discovered a talent he knew nothing of.
One thing led to another, and he began to learn more about behavioral sciences. Soon he left his banking career as one of the youngest bank directors ever.
