Dealing with key clients is easy for me thanks to my excellent communication skills, knowledge of English and flexibility in searching for the optimal solution. I am a dynamic and ambitious person with a proactive approach. I get along well with people and I can effectively build strong relationships with clients as well as colleagues.
