...it’s about sharing is caring

Kokoon Team

Per Solli is a super positive and highly motivated entrepreneur born in Norway and the driving force behind Kokoon Global INC.

Working the farm animals before and after school from an early age and opening his first business at the age of 19 with a multi service shopping zone, Per is used to taking responsibility and learning on his feet.

As a top athlete himself, Per later moved into sports coaching with one of Norways women’s soccer teams, IK Grand Bodo 1998/1999 and also served as CEO. Working extensively with the team and closely monitoring performance, he developed a niche sports program which led to a highly successful and lengthy career traveling the world talking about Sports Nutrition and Fitness to sports teams, athletes, doctors, coaches, and other sports professionals, etc.., and knows the industry well. Per’s specific expertise also extends to training, physical therapy, sales and overall business development.

Having mostly lived in Hotels for the last 20 odd years and possessing a keen interest in them, Per has become quite an expert. This expertise and knowledge gave rise to the concept of a Medical Centre with Sports Injury focus, combined with Sports Rehabilitation and Nutrition programs catering for elite athletes in a Luxury environment aimed at fast recovery, the initial Kokoon La Aldea project. It has grown since then.

As President and Founder of Kokoon Global INC, Per has been patiently putting the pieces together for over 10 years now, and the scale of the project now involves many people and many plans.

One has to have nerves to stand on World Stage and negotiate deals on the scale required for the Kokoon project. And standing up in an industry where you suggest business as usual is not good enough, you get push back, attending meetings with government officials and big businesses, and clinching deals and signing on new investors,  Per has certainly demonstrated a resilient and determined character.

Tone has for some years now been working as judge in the field of children's welfare, as Board Chair of The County Social Welfare Board. Earlier she has been a lawyer, conducting cases in various areas of the law, e.g. criminal cases and property law. Prior to that, she was a Deputy Judge and District Court Judge, handling all kinds of cases. Before that, following her law exam in 1995, she was working out acts and regulations, working for The Ministry of Health and The Ministry of The Environment.

As the initiator of Kokoon for Peace, Tone’s experience from daily judicial life as a judge and lawyer, has been that every day means being in the middle of conflict and polarization. The parties spend all their resources with the aim of winning, instead of solving the problems and working out the overall best result. Winning a battle doesn’t equal getting peace. Therefore, mediation and conflict resolution has become her main focus, and she contributed in introducing a system for mediation, which has turned out a great success. We see that when the parties feel listened to and understood, at the same time as they are challenged, miracles really do happen. When they change focus from “winning the trial” or “ruining the other party”, to realizing that there is a common goal, they can spend their resources joining forces and get incredible results.
