Expert in Excel

United States - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 1

Having a background in Mechanical Engineering I find myself constantly wanting to solve problems related to making any business successful. From sales support, production, installation, finance, reporting, etc. Most of my experience is with Microsoft Excel and using that software to its full potential creating complicated worksheets and macros to solve the problem at hand. From using an excel file to generate standard pdf's to creating reports that attach themselves to an email at a click of button. My focus while creating these tools is efficiency and accuracy. By reducing the time to do a task and reducing as many mistakes as possible will only better the company using them. As well as Microsoft Excel, I have a great deal of knowledge related to SAP Business ByDesign, Microsoft, Word, Access, Powerpoint, some experience with javascript,Sharepoint, SolidWorks, and AutoCADD.

Highly experienced technical manager, with programming skills a bonus! Most recently I have been working with clients to build web applications using R, the statistical programming language, and the Shiny web application framework. Data analysis and presentation is a passion. Prior to this, for three years I owned and ran a television post-production company located in central London. We made a lot of fantastic programmes, using the latest technology. I was ultimately responsible for the entire business operations, managing 15 staff and multi-million Pound budgets. Nine years at BBC Worldwide, developing strategies and implementing large software projects, to digitise, store and digitally delivery their extensive back programme archive. Business analysis, software project management, product management and supplier relationship management all fell under my responsibilities at various times. Four years at eBay, in both Australia and the UK, during late 1999 and the early 2000s was a fantastic experience, being part of the product management team working to build the world's largest online marketplace. I have also obtained a Master of Business and Technology degree from the University of New South Wales, Australia.
