Carola v.


After almost 25 years working in sales/marketing, events, coaching and training in the B2B market in Holland and Europe, I am looking forward to use my abilities and experience in Africa. I am a strong communicator with many years of experience in coaching/teaching and managing (project)teams. With my entrepreneurial skills, I can make almost anything happen! Jobs in the field of (general) management, coaching and/or project management would suit me very well. I am looking forward to join a company, team or NGO to excel together.
