Summary

During my internship and as a sportsman I have learned to persevere to achieve great results. I excel in teamwork and combine a critical mind with a practical approach. Always eager to learn. As captain of a soccer team I have learned to coach and to motivate people. Although I can be impatient, I managed to transform this into a hands-on mentality.

Christian was one of the best and most proficient interns that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. From the moment he arrived his commitment and eagerness to learn never faltered. He picked things up very quickly and worked well under pressure, producing results every bit as good as many seasoned communications professionals. He has a great eye for detail and was well respected by colleagues and clients alike. I recommend him very highly.
