From my previous work experiences it appears that my work is client centred, well organised and result-based. I have also good analytical skills and I am an achiever. All my traineeships and my studies took place in very multicultural environments and I developed a real sensitivity for cultural diversity and enjoy very much working in multicultural environment. I developed a good sense of diplomacy and know-how to achieve constructive solutions.
