I want to achieve my goals and be a better of myself
I want to inspire, motivate, and bring out the best in my team
I want to work smarter, not harder
I want to find new avenues for new businesses
I want to grow my business and maximize my profits
I want to reorganize my business
I have managed a number of different companies and individual projects, including being a manager of the Phare CFC Unit in Estonia (1997-2001) handling more than 47 mEUR annual budget, reorganized an IT firm, handled difficult project turnaround situations, e.g. in Kosovo (2011-12), where I was the 4th consecutive leader of the team of 9 long-term, 15 short-term experts and 2 local back-office staff and ensured smooth finalization of the project that was seriously behind schedule. In addition to my native Estonia I have lived and worked 3 years in Croatia, 1.5 years in Kosovo, 1 year in Turkey. Also done several short-term assignments elsewhere. See my detailed CV here
