The integral substance of my professional career and the essential mission and vision of my company has been the identification, integration and support of both personal and institutional change and innovation particularly with regard to educational and economic systems.
I chose to work with BizforClimate because I believe that the mission, vision and capacity of the entity deals directly with the change and innovation required by climate change issues, one of the most significant issue facing both the private and public sectors today.
