Broad experience in sectors ranging from IT/telecoms to medical/life sciences, financial services, international development, food and beverage, construction ; proven ability to quickly master complex and highly technical subject matter;

Vast international experience, contributing to efficient sample sourcing, recruiting, fieldwork planning etc. Where time scales allow, I can personally cover several countries on the same project and in the respective native languages. Where a project involves a small number of contacts in each of several countries, I can advance further along the learning curve than individual consultants covering separate countries.
