AIESEC and Alumni experience|
|I have known Alex since 2001, initially as an AIESEC member whilst I was a trustee of AIESEC UK. Have stayed friends ever since.
Alex is that great mix of fun, values and capability. He brings enthusiasm and energy with clear thought and logic, and has a strong focus on making a positive change, all of which allows him to deliver change not just himself but through inspiring others around him. He has an infectious personality that has seen him grow his network of friends and contacts, which is always a useful skill. He embodies those things that makes AIESEC great.
Alex brings a great network and series of contacts with him and has managed to retain contact with so many people from so many years. He has worked and studied in multiple countries, speaks several languages, and has contacts throughout.
