SKILLSMy career has led me from doing works on site (the jungle, the desert, African villages, etc.) up to the office, making me change imperceptibly the hull into the tie. Fortunately, to see the forest and not the trees has given me so many satisfactions that today, my tie knots are the best!That is why I am interested in sales, getting new Clients and negotiating new projects: I can spend most of the time “doing business” and, from time to time, take short trips “to the jungle”. Other aspect of the work that attracts me is the management. I have experienced many kind of management: works, quality, subcontractors, teams, projects, sales, multinational foreign branches, and now a division (energy in Argentine!).To go deeply and see more than words, I have included some details of my personal achievements on my experience. LANGUAGESTo arrive to a town where you are definitively “the other”, different culture, stranges social structures, and, to top it all, a language that is not your mother tongue, and to manage to leave this town with a motivated operative team, with achieved objectives, with happy Clients, you know you got it: you are a survivor!OK, and, what you get of all this? Nice and compressed experiences (five years in Africa is like ten in Spain), ability to solve unusual situations, and… LANGUAGES.
-French: I was already bilingual, but working two years in a French speaking country is useful.
-English: I had studied and practiced in my travels around Europe, but to work five years each day in this language, is better than any course.
-Portuguese: I started from scratch but as for the English, five years is more than enough to learn a language so similar to Spanish.
-Spanish: is the first time in my life to work in Spanish language. It is OK, but most of technical words I use to work with, still are for me English words.So, that is why I can be now comfortable living, working, travelling in the 80% of the world.
