SKILLS                                

Together with my academic qualifications and experience in the work place, I would like to add three complementary skill sets. 

Logical Problem-Solving Skills: one of my favourite challenges of university involved looking at a company’s current situation, analysing it and judging what should be the most important future actions. I believe my exam performance, in which I managed to come to the same conclusions as my tutors, granting me 76%, exemplifies my progression of this practice.
