To me being the most qualified and knowledgeable Finance employee was new, it gave me a lot of confidence to realise how valuable my skills can be, I improved my coaching and developed mentoring skills. Communication in a foreign language that I was not fluent in made me realise the importance of communication, the different forms of communication and improved my communication skills. I was faced with a few challenges, had to think outside the box and demonstrate a lot of patience."
