Services as well as the IT industry as a Business Analyst. Through these roles I am adept at simply
and effectively communicating necessary processes and knowledge to others. This is shown through
my proficient documentation skills. I am able to bring a practical knowledge of how important
communication, documentation and requirements are to optimise performance and delivery.
