Worked with the GEAI team and volunteers who had no prior experience of digital facilitation or design thinking to develop digital climate dialogues.

Digital facilitation was taught through leading by example, coaching, action and reflection.

customer service
Onboarded new client
It's difficult to change paths in your career. It's even more difficult to put two years of a dynamic position in a start-up into just words. It has truly been a journey learning about early start-up companies and helping recruit angel investors at the same time. 

I have learned how to manage entrepreneurs' expectations, expand their knowledge on their competitive landscape, and how to interact with customers. 

I have learned how to recruit angel investors, what buzz words work with different people, and what people are looking for in joining a community of like-minded people. 

The journey continues with me bringing these skills learned with me on my next adventure.
