I am a strategist with a track record in cross-management that includes but is not limited to cross-cultural management, mentoring, marketing, investment, business productivity, and capacity building. I leverage on my Executive Management, Local and Global Networking, Negotiations, Organizational Development and Program Management skills to push the needle for individuals and institutions by turning businesses and individual life’s around for improvement and success.
