Cyprus - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 4

Demonstrable skills and experience in both Enterprise and SME (MSP Clients) Project and Programme Management, based on the principles and methodologies of industry standards such as PRINCE 2 and PMP. With further demonstrable experience of managing teams in excess of 30 members including local hire and remote resources, together with all aspects of annual performance appraisals, and contractor negotiation, with an excellent understanding of the latest ITIL methodologies for ITSM. This specific experience has been gained from over 10 years of managing distributed teams and environments across multiple time zones and cultural forums, through Application and Infrastructure Support and Project and Change Management to have a complete understanding of the both SDLC and ITSM and how to make them successfully coexist. I have developed and managed enterprise grad SLA’s, OLA’s, UC’s and KPI’s framework, for both internal IT staff and external supplier resources to meet with industry and global regulatory requirements. Responsible for ALL Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) reporting and owner of ALL SOX controls for UK. I have a professional, adaptable, and competent approach to both Resource and Stakeholder management. I am more than comfortable with working in an integrated IT environment or as a consultant. I have a strong mix of corporate enterprise, SME and entrepreneurial experience, and to expand on that, my experience has afforded me the ability to learn the complex matrix management structures and business models which predominantly gained within Global Financial Services Industries (Investment Banking and Global, Corporate and Specialty Insurance). Where conversely some of my most recent and earlier career experience was based in one of the most competitive customer service industries, and to achieve success in this, I had to be flexible to market conditions, so that I could maintain strategic focus so as to continually meet my financial targets. The combination of my career experience has provided me with the opportunities of working in USA, Belgium, France, Spain, Gibraltar, Abu Dhabi and secondments to Brazil, Mexico and APAC, for projects that I was either managing or transferring to local piers and latterly I had responsibilities for USA, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and Denmark. I am confident that I have a strong comprehension of global business environments and managing diverse IT Departments across a multicultural platform. I feel that I am confident and excellent communicator and am completely at ease with interacting and influencing piers, partners, subordinates and executive management, both internally and externally to my working environment. Throughout my career, I have remained technically competent, complemented by my training and experience with Prince 2 and ITIL methodologies. I am a strong communicator, who is confident and experienced in influencing business and IT stakeholders-up to and including-CIO/Managing Director Level.

I am also the principal consultant for WiFi Austria Institute's 'HR Manager' course. This is 9 month course for which I also develop training material. My blog is No Panic Management and if you Google me you will find few more websites I made, with copies I wrote. My name is on first page of Google (when searching for it.) My objective is to work only on things I like, with people I like. They are professionals with integrity and attitude. It means they like and respect business, as well as others they work with. Do not work for companies who do not treat employees well. Ultimately I am looking for ways to help business grow and create jobs, whether it is mine or anyone else's company. That is a greater mission behind any ''small'' task I undertake. I take different jobs at my spare time, those I can do well, enjoy, and those that enhance my business experience while delivering result. Should you have a good business proposal or idea for me, I'd be happy to hear it. Am always welcoming new opportunities for business development and mutually beneficial partnerships.

Business Finance Consultant

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 1

My unique approach to financial management is designed to reveal both insights and opportunities. Building upon a background of National Account Management, Commercial Banking, Brokerage Services, and Senior-Level Financial Consulting, I draw upon a wealth of practical, first-hand experience to benefit clients in the ways that matter most: A broad-based understanding of business finance that achieves defined, sustainable goals. A common theme linking disparate industries at different stages of development and maturity comes courtesy of an understanding of the flow of every dollar, from sales to expense to operating income. Examined through a lens that is customized for every client and each business, and reflects their unique challenges and competitive advantages. The result is what I call Functional Financial Management. It’s not merely the numbers, but the story inside the numbers. Customized, relevant, and with a practical utility that can be nothing short of game-changing. These are also the hallmarks of financial management guidance provided through Business Expedition Partners, the financial consulting firm I founded to offer clients around the world specialized financial consulting. From start-ups to mature companies, it is an honest, hard-working, unrelenting attention to detail that delivers results exceeding expectations. Top 5% Odesk Contractor!

She asked me how to drive traffic into her SLOW hair salon. I asked her why it was so slow. She said that the prices were kind of high and nobody wanted to try that salon because the outside looked bad but the inside was beautiful. I told she had two options 1) Fix the outside appearance or 2) Try a creative marketing approach. She said what could I do that's creative for haircuts? I told her to use the "A" frame sign in front of here store and put, "FREE HAIRCUTS THIS WEEKEND- TIPS APPRECIATED". What do you think happened? The hair salon was slammed. She had 15-25 bookings a day that weekend and was making $5-$25 in tips per client. She had so much work she had to give it away to the other stylists in that salon. They absolutely loved the haircuts and she booked about 1/2 the clients for the next haircut. Whenever she gets slow she breaks out that "A" frame sign and they flock in. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have top 20%-20%-30% scores on Odesk for marketing, business plans, customer service and would love to help your business achieve it's financial goals.
