Her clients have been in the following sectors: fintech, IT, electronics, health, engineering. She can be extremely hands-on where necessary, as an interim director or project implementor, or work with you as a coach or mentor.
Her skill-set is broad, her attitude is ‘can-do’, with a strong creative side as well as an analytical way of thinking and problem solving abilities.
She has established and managed several organisations, privatising one of them. She has spent many years working with companies interested in commercialising their technology, and with small to medium size companies who were interested in growing their companies and becoming more efficient, to improve their revenue and profit margins.
