Summary

I am a driven and ambitious business executive and consultant who thrives on challenges and have a proven track record of success in delivering highly sensitive and risky projects in hostile and demanding environments. With a background in finance and telecommunications, my experience extends from mergers and acquisitions to corporate finance, both in the boardroom and more recently in developing key business stakeholder and support strategies and seeing them through implementation to delivery. My experience includes SMEs as well as large corporates.

I have strong interpersonal skills and a deep intercultural understanding, which means I am well suited to working with global organisations.  I bring innovation into the workplace and have been instrumental in developing commercial relationships.
