I have broad-ranging professional experience in higher-education and research, business and the not-for-profit sectors. My core strengths are an ability to communicate complex issues effectively, a flair for questioning assumptions and exploring alternative solutions to problems, and flexibility in my approach to tasks that makes me easy to work with and quick to adapt to new situations.
