I feel this is a strong advantage. I have the ability to take a brief, successfully develop my designs laterally with creative vision, produce accurate print ready artwork or eBook, work within deadlines and project manage work through to completion.I have worked with major brands such as M&M;, Mars, Snickers, Whiskas, Lipton, Merrild, Sheba, Samsung, Tramontina, HP, L'Oreal, Lancome, Renault, Mazda, Jaguar and Adidas. My skillset includes creating corporate identities, logotypes, stationery, brochures, annual reports, magazines, catalogues, flyers, business cards, posters, and presentations for exhibitions and events and I have extensive experience working both B2B and B2C. Although, I have worked on the creative end of producing ads, I currently enjoy taking creative works and fastidiously preparing them for production.

Hello, Over the last 2 decades, I have developed a wide range of business spreadsheets and databases using Microsoft Excel, Access and Filemaker Pro, including major databases for organisations around the world. My core competency lies in complete end-end database and spreadsheet development utilising Visual Basic for Applications programming code, and I am seeking opportunities to build business solutions and databases from the ground up for you or your business. I also have 22 years experience as an accountant and can develop automated financial reports that integrate with your accounting software. If you'd like the full story, please read on. Hello, My name is Lawrence. I am an ex group finance director who has turned spreadsheet and database solutions developer. I hold a degree in psychology and sociology and my interests include the search for personal excellence, hypnosis and brainwave entrainment. My areas of expertise include accounting, systems implementation and financial reporting, spreadsheet and Microsoft Office development and database development. Accounting, systems implementation and financial reporting I have 24 years experience in the accounting field, having occupied positions such as accountant at an accounting firm, finance manager for a group of companies and group finance director for an international NGO. I provided support to finance managers in the NGO environment in several countries, both in person and remotely. I particularly focused on budget variance reporting and cash flow management for small NGOs. During my years as an accountant I provided clients with financial services such as financial statements, taxation advice and other financial reporting. I also conceptualised, designed and implemented numerous computerised accounting systems from scratch or from paper based systems. I have also implemented several project reporting systems and created data interfaces between popular accounting packages and Microsoft Excel from which sophisticated financial reports could be generated. I currently provide consulting services and financial advice to small businesses and NGOs as well as financial tools that improve accounting accuracy and financial reporting. Spreadsheet and Microsoft Office development As an accountant, I made extensive use of spreadsheet applications such as Lotus 1-2-3 and Microsoft Excel. I developed increasingly advanced spreadsheets to accommodate the needs of myself and my clients until I reached the point where I began using macros extensively. The next logical progression was to write my own code in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), the programming language embedded in all Microsoft Office applications. This allowed me to create very sophisticated applications that could meet any SME or NGO requirement. An example of this is an invoicing system which I designed for an American organisation which allowed subcontractors to compile and submit their multipage invoices in a fraction of the time it took using another system. I currently consult and design customised spreadsheets for clients. I regularly do text and data manipulation in Excel using advanced formulas and, if required, VBA code. Database development I have completed three courses on Microsoft Access (Basic, Intermediate and Advanced) and use it to design database solutions for the Microsoft Windows platform. For one of my projects, I designed a database for a large American organisation which monitored several hundred schools and several thousand teachers for an education project which was run in several provinces in South Africa. For my latest project I designed a database to track the performance of students and teachers in 300 schools in Haiti. Data was collected in several field offices and combined at head office level. The database also interfaced with two other data systems to automate the import and export of summarised data. In addition, I have accumulated extensive practical experience in IT support and application development and regularly provide technical advice on software implementation, design and computer automation. I strive to under promise and over deliver, something which I hope will be evident from any references you may see. A successful project to me means that I have exceeded your expectations as a client and that you would not hesitate to recommend my services or work with me again. I would love to discuss your requirements with you if you have any projects for which you think my skills might prove useful. Lawrence
With over 13 years of experience as an Internet marketer in the English and German market, I can help anyone who is looking for an Internet marketing expert or anyone who needs someone who can translate websites, books and documents from English to German and vice versa. With regards to Internet marketing, I can write salesletters, help you with your list building (I had a list of over 10,000 subscribers in the Internet Marketing niche myself before I went into the German market - which is smaller, of course). I can also do your squeeze pages or website promotions since I have done all of that myself in the past. Since I am still living in Germany, I am only willing to accept projects which are paid well for my expertise and on an hourly basis. The only exception to that being the writing of articles or translations of ebooks/websites. I have done lots of translations of complete ebooks from English to German and have been selling them in the German market to hundreds of customers on a monthly basis. So you can see that the quality is outstanding if people were willing to pay for it every month. I don't want to sell myself short and thus only want to accept projects that meet my quality and ethical standards. Meaning, for example, I would not get involved in any projects that would require sending emails/autoresponder messages to unconfirmed leads as this would be spam. Same with Facebook - I would not do anything that would involve sending messages to people who do not have a business relationship with you if you want to sell things to leads from Facebook or other social platforms. In return, if you hire me, you'd get someone highly qualified, with fluent language skills in both English and German and more than a decade of experience in Internet marketing and related tasks like building and optimizing Wordpress websites, writing salesletters, lead generation, payment processor integration, selling digital products via the Internet etc. Lots of experience in Clickbank sales and selling as an online affiliate for Amazon. In the last 15 months, I have been creating Wordpress websites in Optimizepress 2.0 and now with the rival software Profitbuilder which both create fantastic Squeeze Pages and Salesletters as well as membership sites. So if you need someone to create great looking sites with either of these tools, I'll be your go-to-guy for this ;-).
