  • Corporate and government ventures, entrepreneurship, new business development and leadership,
  • Holistic business strategies based on user experience, business models and technology,
  • Igniting the passion of others through shared vision and goals,
  • Proven negotiator with experience in strategic partnerships and contract negotiations,
  • Significant experience in new business, mentoring and change management, and
