Significant strengths lie in the areas of senior stakeholder management having worked closely with, and provided trusted advice and counsel to, executive and senior leadership teams, where credibility, gravitas, and the ability to influence, gain buy in, and bring about consensus have been consistently demonstrated. A natural leader and motivational influence, I am used to working in busy environments and to tight deadlines.
