Was communicating with customers and suppliers frequently at Eaton when executing projects Team Work

At Neopak Paper Mills developed a very strong and dedicated team and this translated to reduction in downtime Willingness to learn

When I moved from a maintenance environment to a design and project management one, I had to learn very fast within a few months because the person who was doing the job was going on retirement the time for him to leave was based on my speed of learning, Handling of Pressure
