About Me

I am a highly self-motivated retail manager and trainer with excellent business awareness. My competencies include the ability to strategically plan, implement, monitor and adapt company goals in a customer-centred way, while ensuring the human, technological and physical resources are available for their success. As the retail sector is continuously evolving, I understand the importance of continued personal development to stay up to date with current trends and also to develop future opportunities in line with ongoing customer care and needs.
