My career has led me to specialize increasingly in the design delivery management of complex multi-cultural projects and their staffs at international levels. I have full project life cycle (analysis, design, implementation, testing and deployment) experience in: strategic forward-planning; operating within the tight delivery disciplines imposed by ambitious budgets which I have helped to plan; methodical administration to deadlines (also crisis management where necessary); and the application of modern leadership methods (through people motivation and involvement in both decision-making and target-setting, clarity in communication, and easy personal inter-relations). My own cosmopolitan background, techno-functional knowledge and analytical interests in other cultures, together with a command of several languages, have also left me confident in handling negotiations that require the reconciliation of different national approaches to otherwise common problems.
High "cultural intelligence". Very comfortable workings with international teams and varied work cultures, thorough understanding of client's expectations. May identify process improvement opportunities.
