Career Goals & what I bring

In this day and age it is vital to be "Multi-Skilled' and "Multi-Talented" with a diverse international management background in business & economics as well as having an international background of work experience and other fields and be highly detailed in execution that is sound and well grounded.  This is what I bring to the table...I was always told, "to never be skilled in one field but be skilled in many". I have graduated from 3 Corporate and Micro economic fields and my skills have been tested a lot in my career. In my years as a professional I have more diverse skills than and average corporate professional. I know what works and what does not...The world as we know it, is changing at a "hyper speed" pace in all areas of business and one needs to be like a "chameleon"and be ready to change ones colors to adapt to new environments within the business landscapes. Other wise your business dies... I provide the highest level of professionalism with detailed execution in all areas. Skills, which mold my persona into diverse abilities which in turn creates strong leadership. My desire is only to succeed where others fail. I am hands on always and a solid team player.

                               I want only to be in an environment that will use my skills and strength's and creativity that will  make a difference in all aspects in all areas I am employed in. I provide strong leadership and loyalty in all facets. If this is what you are looking for...here I am. Life's challenges are endless and new ones come up always. It is the "sole" individual who can ride these challenges with maturity and experience and professionalism into new frontiers...and take on any adversities that come along... This is what I live for...
