I believe in humanity combined with machine, leveraging data and insights to make informed decisions, fostering a culture of innovation, and building strong, diverse teams that are equipped to navigate future opportunities and challenges.
My biggest asset behind my achievements and my passion is emotions and their overall impact on people, strategy, performance, goal achievement, decision-making, communication and a culture where people can be one with machines in the future. The love for strategy was sparked by experience and the observation that understanding emotions and personal chemistry are a success factor that ensures sustainable solutions.
