Ideas (coming up with and testing), People (knowing, finding, talking to), Driving (teams and tasks) and Leading (people but also myself). Anything I have ever done professionally has been sucessful - meaning either that i am not that bad at doing things or that i only chose projects i know i will suceed at. Either way it works...
I am an ex finance professional (6+ years at Goldman Sachs) where my role was structuring and sales in commodity derivatives, helping industrial corporate clients manage their raw materials risk. In that role I developed client relationships, created and pitched tailor-made solutions and products, grew and met multi-million $ annual PnL budgets and hired and developed junior talent.
I left the finance and commodities industry to break free of the often inflexible corporate world, and to build something new from scratch. I launched the Shared Tables Society (www.sharedtables.com), hoping that it will change the lives of young, accomplished individuals by helping them connect with real, similar people, in real life.
I started Shared Tables in London a few months ago, where it was met with great enthusiasm from new and returning customers. I am currently in NYC to test the grounds for the same business here, and am looking for a co-founder to grow and run the US part of the business with me.
