I take a long-term view of my life, yet always value the power of every moment as they occur. I vow to protect life - both mine and that of all other creatures with whom I share this universe. I am loyal, trustworthy, understanding and forgiving of others' shortcomings. I am disciplined to live the life I have chosen for myself - responsible for my successes and accountable for my failures.
I generally find it easy to put my thoughts (or the thoughts of others) into words. I am a confident conversationalist and public speaker.
I have faith in the links between all things. I do not believe in coincidences but that every action creates a reaction of sorts.
I am fascinated by ideas. I am able to find connections between seemingly disparate phenomena. This excitement is further amplified when working with others.
I love the challenge of meeting new people and winning them over. I derive great satisfaction from breaking the ice and making a connection with another person.
I am adept at dealing with problems. I enjoy figuring out what is wrong and resolving it.
As part of my continuing dedication to life-long learning, I enrolled in one of the World's leading online examination courses for PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner level exams.
Learning about the various aspects of this world-class methodology, I can apply higher levels of focus and quality to projects in all industries.
In order to quantify my level of Mandarin Chinese (Putonghua) I took the Peking University Advanced Chinese Course on Coursera.org, gaining a score of 99.2%.

Run by the University of California, Irvine, I completed this on-line course in 2014 to help me with better a understanding of basic financial planning theories and management. Not only has this experience helped in my personal finances, but also with financial matters relating to my work as well, including project P&L planning and sales forecasting.
Run by the University of California, San Fransisco, this online course has been a fundamental part of my personal interest in health and well-being as it relates to nutrition, health and disease. This is not related to any particular professional post I have held, more it is part of my interest in a better quality, longer life, in keeping with my personal mission.
Run by the University of Geneva, I took this course in order to better understand the challenges facing International Organizations as I was part of a fast-growing organization at the time and wanted to bring some extra knowledge and understanding to the role. By studying organizations such as the EU council and the United Nations, I could present case studies and insight on how a corporation might go from medium size to enterprise-level whilst being aware of their overall place on the World stage.
