I believe my comprehensive global experience makes me an asset to any company that prides itself in having the best professionals for the job. Working for a myriad of international corporations, I have utilized my extensive knowledge of languages to promote better communication and positive results for my employers. These experiences have refined and heightened my skills, helping to shape me into a reliable and skilled employee with excellent organizational, developmental and multicultural skills.
I am eager to work in an environment where my skills and qualifications can best be applied. I am flexible and have upgraded my competences in this changing environment by gaining a Degree in Leisure Management a year or so ago, this degree has awarded me with the latest innovative managerial and business theories. I am passionate, open minded and have exceptional communication skills; I have also a great sense of humour and consider my self a good team player.
