I can help you find your strategic direction and lead your team to reach the required results.
When I studied for my MBA in Strategy, I was naively searching for the magic tools and recipes that bring strategy to light and lead corporations to success. I did not find them back then, in the academic setting, and focused on developing my finance skills instead. Only later I realised that without strategy, finance was bound to fail too. As fuzzy and soft as strategy may sometimes be, it delivers the basis all operations and financial management requires. Today, I can accept that there is no one single right answer. I embrace uncertainty. And I know that for the determined and diligent, the right strategy can be formed. Because success is not just a matter of luck and timing. Success does not come to you. You go to it.
