Public Relations expert with 10 years exp

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

I am interested in utilizing my experience and knowledge in the Public Relations fields of material creation and writing, press release drafting and distribution, event planning, media relations, brand expansion and management and if needed crisis communications. I have 10 years experience working at public relations firms small and large. My last position was Vice President at Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide in Sacramento California. My responsibilities included managing the work on two of the largest infrastructure projects in the United States, the California High Speed Rail project, and a new state agency created to solve the states water problems the Delta Stewardship Council. For the California High-Speed Rail Authority, I managed 10 regional project segments and 72 regional consultants statewide. I was responsible for the review of all public materials to ensure consistency in messaging and presentations made publicly at various meetings taking place each week. Additionally, I managed the education and partnership outreach statewide for the High-Speed Rail project to ensure that the Authority was reaching all communities throughout the state and not just those associated along the project line. 

 Prior to Ogilvy, I worked at KP Public Affairs the largest lobbying firm in California, where in the communications division, I handled the day-to-day operations of several major clients. This included the strategic oversight and program implementation for a statewide coalition "Alliance for a 21st Century Water System" to build consensus around the need for new water storage. In addition to coalition coordination and outreach, I also handled the statewide media outreach on behalf of the coalition and Westlands Water District. 

 Additionally, I served as client leader for a renewable energy company siting projects throughout California, Invenergy LLC and provided media relations support and business and brand communications strategies for clients such as the California Small Business Association and PETCO. In shaping public policy in California, Mrs. Ratcliff was responsible for the statewide communications outreach on behalf of the California Mortgage Bankers Association when the housing crisis began to spur legislative actions against the industry. 
Prior to my work at KP, I worked for almost five years at Burson-Marsteller starting as an intern.

 I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Government and Journalism from California State University, Sacramento.

Sr. IT/Software Development (Project) Management

Italy - Last active: 14 hours ago - Tests: 10

- Sr. QA Engineer - Sr. Project / Program Manager / Scrum Master - Sr. Business Consultant After years of experience in Management in both the Software Development and IT industry, I want to expand my horizon at my level of expertise. I'm more geared towards management of technical staff and/or projects. In this setting I have experience in a lot of different specialties (QA, Customer Support, Web Development, Development, IT, Production, Client Management, and others). I'm comfortable in a lot of environments, but I like to be able to use my own management style that is more aimed in managing through positive experiences, openness and coaching and training. I'm definitely not a supporter/believer of managing with an iron fist. My main aim is always to create a positive and productive environment in which people can feel happy and flourish, as opposed to being stressed and strained. I learn quickly and I'm flexible and precise in my work. I have experience with multiple cultures and am a good communicator.

United Kingdom - Last active: 14 hours ago - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 13

I am a highly-skilled software engineer and computer science graduate with 23 years of professional experience. Software development is my greatest skill and I have an incredible attention to detail and perseverance in getting the job done, and done well. I've been developing native Objective-C iOS apps for over 3 years. I don't use tools like PhoneGap or Appcelerator. I have direct experience with Apple's policies, device capabilities and account management procedures from publishing my own apps (see my portfolio for screenshots and iTunes links). By hiring me you would benefit from my extensive skills and experience. Technologies change, but first-class analysis, design, development, testing and debugging skills can only be built from many years of hard work and real-life development experience. I work from home in a distraction-free environment using a Mac with dual 23" monitors. For good test coverage I own several iOS devices: iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, 1st generation iPad, 3rd generation iPad, retina iPad mini and iPad Air 2. I don't believe you can get the true "feel" of an app by just using the simulator. For client testing, I can use TestFlight to deliver builds throughout the project. Thanks for taking the time to read my profile. I'm looking forward to working with high-quality product designers and creating some great apps together.
