Additional Information: While most of my background is in Public Speaking, IT Sales, Administration and Management, I do not wish to limit myself to only these opportunities. You’ll notice that I adapt quickly to new tasks and situations and put for the extra “out of class” effort to learn any new requirement – whatever it may be and whatever new education it may require.
