Summary

Probably the best Corporate Communications Director B2B you can hire today. I have 12+ years international experience from a variety of industries. My experience comes from agencies, in-house positions and industry associations and I can effectively utilize this experience and take your international PR and communications to the next level.As people manager I have a helicopter view. It's very efficient; it builds well-organised projects and groups, and encourage professional growth. And it means that the identified goals are achieved on time and within budget. I'm trilingual, but read and understand another four languages.
