I moved to Finland in 2004 and became a dual citizen, Finland and Canada. I have 25+ years working experience in Telecommunications and wireless data industry including 10 years in management with Motorola on the product development (R&D) side of the business including integration and customer network support followed by 10 years in project management mostly on the services side of the business. The most recent years I have been based in Finland as a Program and Project Manager for multi-country projects. I worked in global programs for Ericsson global service business including change management, managed services and other transformations and also Huawei managed services delivery. Diversity and inclusion are more than familiar concepts for me from my many years working outside Finland and seem to be popular hot topics recently for our local community where we are all looking for ways to move from good to even better and further develop an environment and community where innovation thrives.
