Business &
Technical Balance
I successfully adapt communication styles and methods to match the needs of my audience in technical and persuasive situations. I excel at keeping an audience engaged while getting my point across in both formal and informal presentation settings.
My mix of IT and business background allows me to see past technical details to understand the impact to customers, users and the business’s bottom line.

Conversely, I recognize customer needs and tailor technical solutions to satisfy them.
