I designed, developed, delivered and evaluated several programs, primarily in the areas of leadership, communication, and management. Also served as Manager, Global Business Development for the Latin America, then the Asia-Pacific markets for international delivery services.

Spent a number of years as the Regional Program Director in the Washington DC area for the doctoral programs in business and public administration for Nova Southeastern University’s H.
