Why me?

I convey a powerful message. As a businesswoman and policy leader, scientist turned entrepreneur, digital nomad living in 6 counties, I have done it all. I have learnt-by-doing how to change the world and make an impact. My life story is such an uncommon professional journey. And my success is based on what I preach: growth through Network Thinking.
