  4. 4. Soft Skills: Conceptualising Leading Presenting Communicating Problem Solving Efficiency Research and Development Extremely quick learner, always hungry to learn even if it means making the odd mistake from time to time. I have an eye for design in terms of what does and what does not work which means that I aim to produce nothing but the best. I am also ambitious, motivated, confident, loyal and able to easily adapt to working with people and teams. I know what I want in terms of a career in this field of work and I am willing to put in the hours to achieve this. I do not always ask the right questions when they need to be asked which means that I can sometimes take too much initiative with an assignment. I would also like to improve my product photography skills. DESIGN SKILLS SET CONT. INTERESTS REFERENCES WEAKNESSESSTRENGTHS I am passionate about design. I do, however, look to take a break from this and refresh my mind by staying physically active.
