What do I have to show? At management level, I've got 8 years as CEO of a small business. This project I created and others I co-funded and nourished, have all reached their goals and are still viable today. On a technical level, as a sports coach I've worked with a wide array of athletes (both amateur and professional), who I've help improve their performance and social skills. What are my skills? I love what I do and the passion contagious my clients and team. I take the most advantage of my training, allying analytic and structured thinking with the upmost regard for the quality of the relationships I establish with all my stakeholders. What I'm looking forward to? Taking on new challenges, that allow me to develop new skills. Creating and developing client relationships, manage people and resources to attain results and help those that give me opportunities, to achieve more, spending less.
