👫 People Management 👫
I like to think of myself as a people person. Although I’m very happy in my own company I’m equally comfortable interacting with people on or offline. I love connecting with people from different walks of life. Whether it be suppliers, freelancers, colleagues or clients. Making them feel welcome and part of the team is always my priority. My management style is encouraging and approachable. I’ve managed teams directly and indirectly.
- Recruitment of staff.
- Scheduling and maintaining a top level view of multiple work streams.
- Managing KPIs and targets.
- Maintaining positive relationships with internal and external stakeholders.
- Coordinating teams of 50+ people.
- Implementing training and development programs.
- Create supportive environments that help my team(s) thrive under pressure.

As the linchpin for projects, I try to keep my communication clear, concise and specific. I have a knack for translating complex concepts/technical jargon. And have experience communicating with people from all different cultural backgrounds on and offline.
