To whom it may concern.
I possess proven inter-personal, organisational, presentational, managerial, analytical and communication skills that allow me to connect effectively with people from all walks of life, ranging from scientists, private and public sector workers as well as members of the public.
I have developed a well-founded knowledge of both Thai and English languages, having gained degree and master degree qualifications in both Thai and UK universities, and also spent a substantial time working in both Thailand and the UK.
Moreover, throughout my career as a: scientist (including medical science), scientific team leader, facilitative manager of a UK-aid project to Thailand, IT consultant in the UK, and a business owner (Thai cookery School as well as Language Businesses based in London, UK); my ability to learn and to adapt is well established.
In the last ten years, I have been working intensely as a Thai linguist- translator, interpreter, language instructor as well as Thai English language consultant for Business and Marketing (transcreation) in many, various industries, worldwide. Main assignments in the UK are predominantly in law, medical and marketing areas. I have worked in Court room, solicitor offices, and similar establishments involved in the legal field. I have been hired for various projects around the globe to assist the said projects utilising my language and culture abilities. Additionally, with my IT consultant back ground, I have had opportunities to work on an on-going project both in Europe and USA on localization and testing (both language and technical terms in IT).
As part of running Thai language as well as Thai food consultancy businesses, I have used website, social media such as twitter, linkedin, facebook among others as part of my promotional tools.
Additionally, my wealth of skills, knowledge and experience contribute directly and indirectly to this role can be available upon requested.
Furthermore, my background and experience working in the West and Thailand, both in the private and public sectors, has given me an opportunity to broaden my outlook on life which equips me to understand etiquette across socio-economic backgrounds and work effectively in various different cultures, where Thai and English are required to be equally deployed.
