54 years of age and was working as a QC Consultant for European Investors. My main responsibilities were to do Quality Control audits for companies or businesses which they wish to invest or acquire around the world. I also do company re-engineering and re-structuring for their existing companies. I was head hunted by “International Head-hunters” and offered this job in November 2007 and was doing this until mid- 2013. During this tenure I travelled to many parts of the world eg. Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Laos, Korea, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Dubai, India, Africa, Mexico, America, Holland, Portugal, France, Germany and many Middle-east countries. Being too tired of travelling, I decided to pull all these experiences and resources together and started off my own training and consulting company in order to train, guide and develop local companies to achieve greater profits and hit international stan:lards by doing company re-engineering and re-structuring. I also do public and in-house training and workshops.
