Over the course of my career as an engineer, I have had the opportunity to travel internationally for a number of projects. The purpose of these trips has been as varied as the destinations.Debra
All of these journeys have resulted in gaining a greater understanding and appreciation of the myriad of cultures and ways of thinking that exist throughout the world. The key to being effective in all situations is to have the flexibility to adjust one’s thinking and habits to the culture one is situated in while at the same time sharing of yourself. If you are fortunate to travel internationally, embrace the differences that exist in the world. By doing so, you will find out how much in common we all have. Be open to the experience and enjoy!

My job implies a lot of long business travels directly on customer’ sites. This experience is rewarding both from a personal and professional point of view. Being a site manager always implies experience with different people, mentalities, ideas and obviously different problems to solve.Flavio
Apart from the distance with my family, my job enables me to see so many different things!
