Hello there! My name is Franco and I have over ten years experience as a corporate communications and public relations specialist, working for not-for-profit and charitable organizations in Toronto, Canada, including Bridgepoint Health, The Hospital for Sick Children, CNIB, The Arthritis Society and most recently Easter Seals Ontario.
My stories and personal essays have been published in South Asian Life, Hospital News and The Globe and Mail. I possess an undergraduate degree from the University of Guelph, with a major in Philosophy and a post-graduate degree in Corporate Communications and Public Relations from Centennial College.
I am continually seeking new challenges and experiences. I am able to adapt quickly and thrive in team environments. I am organized, dedicated, and motivated. I have strong communication and interpersonal skills and am able to cope in stressful situations. Furthermore, I am a positive, professional and good-humoured individual.
My previous job experiences have developed my ability to support others, remain calm in difficult situations, and learn new skills quickly. I have proven ability to work in very demanding situations that require knowledge of effective management strategies and interpersonal skills.
