I have bachelors degrees in both physics and philosophy from Harvard College. I have broad experience in operations management and software implementation. I was a submarine officer with the US Navy where I specialized in the operation of nuclear power plants and served as the production manager for many highly complex multi-month refit and installation periods. After the Navy I worked as a research Analyst for Goldman Sachs where I developed top level expertise with excel and an insiders understanding of the financial world. I'm currently working for a tech startup helping them streamline their internal operations and have developed deep knowledge and skill with many software tools (SalesForce, Zendesk, Quickbooks, Pardot, Jira, etc.). I am mainly available late in the evening EST and on the weekends. I have an extremely driven type A personality and after working 24/7 for 6 years while on deployment with the Navy I find myself looking for things to do in my new-found downtime. I think Odesk is an incredible idea and I'm happy to dive in on almost any type of work.
Jeremy’s TED talk: www.youtube.com/watch?v=5e0qrm8llOI Jeremy Liddle believes entrepreneurial thinking can change the world. He is a speaker, global thought leader and author specialising in the art of ‘Entrepreneurial Thinking’. As the Australian President for the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Alliance (G20YEA) and Director of Entrepreneurship for The Enterprise Network for Young Australians (ENYA), Jeremy advises world leaders on global best practice in policy and processes for business success with the intention of creating positive change & sustainability. Upon leaving school in 1999 Jeremy began a degree in psychology but was soon tempted, like many young people, by the lure of the party lifestyle. As time passed and the lights dimmed, he was confronted with a critical life changing decision, hitting a personal rock bottom. With the assistance of John Anderson, a valued mentor and friend who was then diagnosed with terminal cancer, Jeremy made the decision to follow John’s parting words and ‘make every step count’. Rather than giving up on life, he chose to overcome adversity, and build a life that has led him to ultimate success in finding his true purpose and passion. By the age of 20 Jeremy was managing his first start up business in the booming Australian juice bar trade, opening Australia’s number one Juice Station Outlet. In 2005, he went on to co-found a natural health company called RioLife which picked up various accolades, including winning Australia’s fastest growing small business 2010 for My Business Magazine. Jeremy is a TEDx speaker and has keynoted globally for G20YEA on the art of entrepreneurial thinking and leadership at international economic forums such as the Junior Chamber International (JCI) global partnerships summit in NYC and The Commonwealth Asian Alliance of Young Entrepreneurs (CAAYE) summit in Sri Lanka. He speaks at United Nations expert group meetings on youth and entrepreneurship, won “The search for Australia’s top young entrepreneur” at Australia’s largest convention for young entrepreneurs in September 2011, and featured in the Shoestring Media 2012 Young & Influential list. His book “From Idea to Start-Up” assists entrepreneurs to implement processes to create a vision and execute a dream. “I met Jeremy in February 2012, when he conducted a workshop as part of the Young Entrepreneur Mentoring program that I found extremely valuable and beneficial. Jeremy demonstrated a high degree of expertise, his presentation was clear and easy to follow” Orsi Parkanyi, Founder & CEO, Women as Entrepreneurs “Jeremy, what can I say but WOW...you are one of the most energetic, easy to deal with, creative, and innovative business men I have come across” Jacob Galea, Director, G Corp Australia Pty Ltd
