Dear Fellow SUNers,
I can`t even remember exactly how I discovered this site, but I immediately jumped in and began responding to some of the insightful posts.
My name is Trina Roach and in my current incarnation I am a coach, trainer and HR development consultant. After leaving university in the early 80`s I actually began working in management training and development while my kids were small. I later got a job at a small, specialized marketing company before taking a position as a marketing consultant at the German headquarters of one of the world`s leading advertising networks in the early 90`s. Because of my training background and my strong interest in personal development, I was appointed Head of HR Development at that same agency in the late 90`s.
Although I grew up in Pennsylvania, I have lived and worked in Europe (mainly Germany) since the mid-70`s.
I was attracted to this site and the people on it, because it represents a great win-win situation for me. Although my marketing/advertising background makes me a strong, no-nonsense sparring partner for other people - like the cobbler`s kids who wears shoddy shoes - I realize I sometimes need an external sounding board (and sometimes: `tough love`) where the business side of my consultancy is concerned.
I`m looking forward to being a part of the dialogue here, willing and eager to both profit from and contribute to the wealth of knowledge and creativity on this board!
P.S. NRW is the abbreviation for the German state of North-Rhine Westphalia (Nordrhein-Westfalen), in case you were wondering.
