Seasoned IT professional with excellent organization and communication skills and a passion for education. 

What I believe in: 
- Technology should empower people not the other way around
- The providential man/woman concept is no longer valid, problems are too complicated and the world is moving too fast: it’s all about team work
- The best incentive for people is a meaningful job and a clear vision for the organization
- Useless complexity and processes kills companies 
- If you listen to people and treat them well they will cooperate
- True leadership is about honesty, listening, knowing your context and shaping up your vision so that people want to get onboard

- Engaging people to work together

- Communicating so that people will relate
- Helping business units and IT teams understand each other
- Getting things done while maintaining a reasonable level of creativity and flexibility
