Hi. I'm Shalini Trefzer. My months-long search for the right platform where I would write on topics of the future of work has come to an end- I've chosen WeSpace over other options, like Medium, for example. A platform by women, for women, with local presence in Switzerland and relevance across the world of work, and most importantly, brought to my attention by someone I respect and trust. Thank you, Desiree Mettraux.
On my member page, I will write 2-3 min reads on three topics:
1) Unintended consequences.
2) The applications of intelligence, human and artificial.
3) Purpose and Value
In 2018, I spoke with prospects and customers from over 200 companies on the applications of AI in their business, on behalf of my clients. In 2019, I am lead-writing European Union and other major grants for a start up which will use AI to revolutionize how we produce and protect our food. Since 2016, I work as a business developer and project execution specialist for primarily AI-based companies. Before that, I had a 15+ combined years at Cisco Systems and Novartis. I've had a project management certification through PMI since 2008. My most recent educational experience was an executive program in AI at MIT last year.
I work mostly out of my home office, unless I'm on the road for one of my clients. My immediate goal is to grow my commercial activity and I am actively looking for interesting collaborations!
Fun fact: I learned Alpine skiing at the age of 40...two!
