"You are creative and spot opportunities in most situations. Your attitude towards problems, is to find a way to turn them into possibilities. You are reluctantly critical and find threats at an early stage. A strong creative side combined with being a thorough analyst, gives you strategic clarity. You are set for results and have a better than average eye for divergencies".

A man of many words and many languages – a gifted linguist with exemplary command of English, German, and can order a beer and tell jokes in 27 different languages (I’m told). Fun to be with and contributes to a stimulating and enjoyable working environment".
