Curriculum Vitae


10 Medena, Bratislava, Slovakia
Date of Birth: 11th September 1971

Significant skills and strengths

I am skilled at analysing and presenting, verbally and in writing, policy options and differences in ideological and political positions. I am skilled at explaining these to those I have taught in business contexts.

I am skilled at editing and proof reading various types of prose; both by the improvement of its grammar and the restructuring of texts.

I have acquired a broad knowledge of different cultures, all of which fascinate me. I am skilled at explaining these differences to those affected by those differences and at therefore maximising cross cultural understanding.
