For the next 5 years or more, I want to share my rich experience and entrepreneurial management skills with African professionals. I am looking to combine relocating family to Senegal with my professional activities. I have experience in IoT, telematics for the transport industry and automatic greasing maintenance in offroad and transport. Multilingual and multi cultural and multi religion I adapt easily and respect other cultures. Today I run my own consultancy business Scaldis Conseil helping transport companies with digital transformation.
