About Patrick Sean Cullen

Who am I

My name is Patrick Seán Cullen, and I’m a digital project manager who also has 5+ years building unique websites, e-commerce shops, and providing hosting services for private consumers and small to medium sized businesses. I’m passionate and proactive with a holistic problem-solving mindset, and thrive when I lead teams through complexity.

My story began during a sweltering heatwave in August of 1993 in Dublin, Ireland. Since then I’ve lived in the UK, Australia, the US, Australia, and Ukraine, and I’m currently based out of Copenhagen, Denmark. I’ve worked with teams all over the world and have a knack for intercultural communication. This background means that I rapidly adapt to organizational structures and cultures to build and manage the necessary relationships to get things done.

My passions and interests

I love new cultural experiences and traveling, films and TV shows, and nerding out about a wide variety different topics and subjects. I  play old video games occasionally, and get stuck in works of fact or fiction. Currently I’m professionally interested in digital transformations, architecture, change management and leadeership, as well as agile project management methodologies. 

Professional Background

I have a cross-functional background in sales, customer service, research and project management. While I seek IT project management roles and contracts, I also provide IT outsourcing services, development of websites and e-commerce shops, and web hosting services.

Education and Certificates

B.sc. Business Studies and International Studies │ 2020 │ Roskilde University

Bachelor of Science; Roskilde University

Thesis: Patrimonial Governance and Informal Relations in Freetown (Sierra Leone) (2020)

My background and experiences led to international social sciences being the best fit for my university pursuits. I pursued a dual track degree because on one hand I was really interested in business, the theoretical and practical aspects of organizations. On  the other hand, I was also interested in the global, political, and economic aspects of international studies, and could see how the two tracks were interrelated.

Strong interests: legal, economic, and administrative functions of business entities, holding structures, business models, marketing, entrepreneurship, informal networks, international relations, development and governance, corruption.

Master of Science; Roskilde University

Master thesis: Social Enterprise as a Viable Force in Disaster Management: A case study of Wartime Ukraine (2022)

Building on my undergrad and inspired by my bachelor thesis, I was interested in this program because I wanted to learn new ways of doing business and addressing societal issues. I now strongly believe that social entrepreneurship and public-private partnerships are key to solving a number of issues, as well as strengthening sustainability on the 3 pillars of social, economic and environmental. 

Strong interests: leadership and management, mission drift and up-scaling of hybrid organizations, social enterprises (SE’s), activism and social movements (in physical and digital spheres), CSR, ESG and social accounting, veteran oriented SE’s, disaster management.

Patrimonial Relations & Informal Networks in Freetown (2020)

Bachelor Thesis - Roskilde University

Immersive ethnographic case study conducted in Freetown, Sierra Leone which investigated governance and informal networks from a micro-level perspective. It demonstrated how this system permeates the society at all levels from the disenfranchised youth to the offices of government, while leaving the large youth demographic with few future prospects.
