My work for United Nations





Since 1990

I've been working as a consultant and an adviser to various United Nations agencies since 1990.

In 2001, I discovered my life mission and a social interpreneur and an innovative World changer. I pursued my life mission wholeheartedly.

Today, I still accept UN consultancy contracts once in a while, yet not often in order to spend less time on writing reports and devote more time to creating great value for people around the World >>>

I left full-time UN job in 2004 because
I reached the value-creation ceiling that exists when you
work within the UN system,
doesn't exist when you are
a self-employed noble innopreneur.
