Personal Motivation
I enjoy working with people either “one-on-one” or in group / project management
environments solving complex problems. I do however understand that not all Tax, Auditing
and Consultation work is “continuously exciting” and that there is a fair amount of “mundane”
work that is required for Management Accounting and Consulting firms to operate at optimal
levels.
I am a social person, I enjoy playing sports ( primarily Golf ) and like to get out into the wild
from time to time to “recharge the batteries” so as to be ready to face the challenging week
ahead.
