You have a will to DO, but first to REFLECT on the strategy and the client’s businesses. You have an excellent understanding of client’s business and objectives and give strategic foundation.

You manage several projects and clients at the same time, so you know how to keep a helicopter view.

And of course you excel at making budgets and know how to stick to them. You are a negotiator and know your way around pricing and fees.

People management skills
