It’s all about Global! I’ve lived in 5 countries, managed teams in 44, and explored many in my quest to experience the breadth of cultures that comprise our world.
I’ve been fortunate to work, exchange perspectives, and share ideas with people on every continent, experiences that taught me to consider multiple points of view and approaches when tackling business challenges. As importantly, I’ve learned how to adapt quickly to whatever context I find myself, enabling me to focus on adding value to my clients and colleagues.
