What can I do for your organization?

I am an experienced organization development professional, change manager and systemic business coach.

My strengths are comprehensive business understanding, analytical and creative problem solving, intrapersonal communication, cooperation & influencing, with genuine positive drive and proactive can-and-will-do mindset.
