Summary

A highly competent, motivated and enthusiastic professional with experience of working as part or leader of a team in a competitive environment. Previous employers have always been impressed with the speed at which I learn new information, share it with others and manage projects. As a native Dutch speaker, I can communicate with corporate clients. Thanks to my experience abroad I can proud myself at being equally fluent in German, Franch and English.
