I have worked for many amazing companies from a satellite manufacture to a coal-fired power station. There is always something unusual to source or complex problems to solve, and things can always be done better. I am a good organiser and like to plan ahead, with a natural risk-management approach (it was called Be Prepared in the Guides)
