Interests are in literature, history, biographies, catechesis, nature, animals, the biological sciences (medicine, therapeutics), health, fashion, travel among others. Reading and watching documentaries are hobbies. Been awarded a certificate of merit as ‘Most Outstanding in Literary English’ from my high school graduating class (1974) from university, drawn from high average marks in English literature and composition, one year as Features Editor of high school organ, and as first placer in an on-the-spot literary contest in poetry and short story. Early in college, did a book review on Feodor Dostoyevski’s ‘Brothers Karamazov.’
From this background of interests and hobbies and my past work experience, I can wear many hats.
As creative writer, article writer, and researcher - I can do essays, short stories, and poetry; also blogging and web-content. I can deliver fast and accurate results as a data encoder. I am very familiar with spreadsheet utilization with excel.
As teacher and trainer – I can teach English as a Second Language (ESL) online to foreign students, preferably university students and professionals. I teach catechesis in a public school and in a parish-base setting. I am also an experienced trainer and public speaker. I have experience in training new hires in product knowledge, including soft skills (as selling techniques, coaching and counseling, presentation skills, etc.). I have crafted training modules and am well versed in power point presentations. I also manage events and conferences.
As Marketing Manager - I can do business plans, brand management, marketing strategies and tactics, market profiling, segmentation, and analysis. My experience in pharmaceuticals enabled me to do medical-writing, research-writing, and business-writing.
As a Sales Manager - I have had experience in recruitment, interviewing, hiring, and deployment. I do regular follow-throughs, readiness analysis, and performance evaluation or appraisal. My main functions in Sales were: quota-setting, program implementation, sales analysis, creating sales force effectiveness programs, and budget management, among others. I have produced a few company manuals on sales policies and procedures.
