Having recently completed my Masters degree, I have been keen on looking for different opportunities. I would love to work with an organization that I can grow with, learn from and in turn, contribute to. As an experienced program manager for corporate responsibility and community development, I also enjoy research and feel that my real calling is in writing - I was potentially a writer in a past life. :) With a gift for the gab and a love of talking in general, I have also been a trainer and am reasonably adept at developing training programs and helping with public speaking and presentations. So if there are any like minded folks out there who would like to work with a cheerful and energetic individual (i.e. moi), we could have a chat and explore the possibilities.
