Independent Internet Policy Analyst and Consultant
“The cultural diversity of an international work environment is neither frightening nor hindering. It’s a challenge to listen, imagine and understand why people have different visions. There’s a healthy tension between the willingness to remain open-minded and the urge to stick to your own ideas and to convince the others. Both are needed to obtain success, build bridges, solve problems or move projects forward.”
