Business Profile

Having been consulting and training for the past 25 years, I am actively involved in projects related to strategic human resources, change management, communication, business process re-engineering and company restructuring.

Holding a doctorate degree from the Maastricht School of Management, I am the author and co-author of management related articles and books.

Over the last 25 years, I have been engaged in a number of management consultancy projects in Malta, Europe and the MENA region.
