Senior Marketing and PR Strategy Executive - US Ba...

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 14

Cathleen Lewis has over 20 years global marketing experience. She established her consulting company in 2009, following several high-profile positions with top agencies and Fortune 500 companies including Ogilvy & Mather, DDB Needham, and Hilton Hotels among others. I have been recommended by my clients as one of the top freelancers on Odesk and I even have been contacted to interview as a contractor representative by Odesk on the side. NOTE REGARDING JOB SUCCESS STAT: I have more than 20 jobs open with past clients. Leaving these jobs open allows them to hire me periodically at the original rate that they hired me at. Some dating back to 2009. This erroneously skews this statistic down since Odesk sees these jobs as “not complete” for the purpose of their statistic. I choose to leave those jobs open as a nod to their loyalty, so, that statistic reflects those jobs as "not completed" but in actuality they are just ongoing and open for the reasons I stated above. I have a lot of high profile experience, however, I also enjoy smaller clients too and always exceed my clients’ expectations. I have an approachable style and believe in candor in communicating with clients. I have successfully led teams as small as three and as large as twenty-five and enjoy a collaborative, productive work environment. I am also well versed in leading metrics, analytics and remarketing platforms Google Analytics, Improvely and Adrolll among others. Here are some additional areas I have a lot of experience in: Online Strategy and Implementation Oversight Graphic Design (Social Media Promotions, Brochures, Direct Mail) Overall Website Development and Design Public Relations Social Media Strategy + Facebook, LinkedIn Advertising PPC including Adwords (I am a Google Agency) Project and Team Management Brand Integration Event Planning/Management Celebrity Endorsement – A –list Entertainment Global Conference Planning and Oversight - 350+ attendees Crowdfunding Strategy and Implementation SEO – Oversight Affiliate Marketing Marketing and Communications Management Loyalty Program Administration I have proven my ability to lead strategy and development of any campaign, brand or initiative involving many stakeholders and am adept at gaining consensus across multiple constituents when necessary. In other words, I play well with others. Also, please keep in mind, I do not do any spec work, commission only or performance only based projects, so please don't ask. I am extremely creative and have extensive experience on big as well as small budgets... There just needs to be a budget. Also, I will be raising my rates at year end, but will honor my current rate with clients who contract with me before the end of December, 2014. I look forward to working with you.

C-Level DNA - Prolific Business Strategist

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 2

Every successful business begins with one person and a vision. Inevitably, that vision must segue to a strategic plan and focused execution. This is a space I've successfully lived in for over 20 years. My strengths lie in visionary business planning and strategy. I can take role as an advisor, collaborator, and/or team member to execute plans or strategic initiatives. I develop Business Plans, Strategic Plans, Operational plans, create financials, and help recruit top management. I help clients positively deliver results to their bottom line, take them from "marginal to viable", and often I help position them for a high(er) probability of an 'exit' when the time is right. I help deliver organized, business-focused narratives and messaging that inform internally and to external stakeholders, vendors, clients or investors. Whether a start up, early stage, or middle market, I approach every engagement in the same manner. I first establish an understanding of the business as it exists today. I review the current business structure. I peel back the layers to clearly assess the business, financials, market dynamics, team, and strategy. I look at the business in its current iteration and then sit down with you to discuss both the 'big picture' and what the goal line looks like to you. Early on, we may well reach a point where I share less-than-good news; There's still work to be done. But it is at this point where I see clients reach a level of cognitive realization, who understand and agree with my position or feedback, and that's where things can start to get exciting. Engage me on an initial consultation (no fee) regarding your business goals and strategy. The outcome of that dialogue will tell us both if there's a fit and whether it makes sense to engage in a mutually beneficial relationship to advance your goals. Michael
