More about this expert:
My greatest challenge was to learn Finnish and to adapt to the Finnish society when I first came to Finland as a 14-year old refugee in 1981. Now more than 30 years later I am a versatile engineering professional in the water and environment sectors. My experience includes a wide range of technical, managerial and institutional aspects of water supply, sanitation and water resources management. I have been project manager of development cooperation and commercial projects alike. My work has taken me to more than 20 countries for short visits and long-term assignments. Moreover, I have also been managing director of two Finnish companies in the water and environment sectors. I have increased sales, and profits and driven positive changes in many organisations. Fun and joy at work, either in a team or independently, customer satisfaction, bringing added-value to customers are things that motivate me. I feel I have reached many mountain tops in my career. Creating opportunities to others and helping others to realize their potential is what I currently find most rewarding.
