I have a good understanding of managing teams and individuals gained both through management diplomas and practical experience managing a range of personalities. I have proven experience building strong relationships both with customers and direct reports, through understanding each person and a high level of emotional intelligence. Having worked across a number of areas geographically and demographically I have learned to tailor my approach to different customers as required.
