Career Summary

Communication skills: I have represented my employer in scores of international seminars, workshops and conferences, conveying its mission, activities and vision to a vast array of decision-makers from the public and private sector.

Organisational / managerial skills: I have sound strategic and management skills, which I honed by participating in targeted courses and workshops and through constant self-improvement efforts. Such skills empowered me to successfully design and oversee the overhauling of the topic area that I have been in charge of within the REC – the Sustainable Development Academy – improving its overall outreach and impact in consolidated and novel beneficiary countries.

Job-related skills: I have a multifaceted international experience in the environmental field and a natural propensity to adjust to the country where I am seconded, developed over the years thanks to several stays abroad and multiple contacts with stakeholders and experts engaged in criss-crossing sectors.
