Specializing in program management, technical management and subcontract management team leadership. I have led program management development programs that has trained and certified program managers for large aerospace company.

I am an experienced and trained Black Belt-Six Sigma Facilitator. As my profile shows I currently have oDesk contracts with five major IT companies that utilize my skills and expertise to assist with project management and proposal writing consultancy. I had a past client who has left me somewhat questionable feedback due to unhappiness he experienced. I learned from this experience to only communicate with the hiring client on proposal requirements. He had delegated daily communications with an employee of his who provided conflicting guidance. I followed his employee's guidance, which wasn't the strategy that the hiring client had. Let these four active oDesk contracts and my past experiences be your guide on my abilities and experiences.

    Every successful business begins with one person and a vision. Inevitably, that vision must segue to a strategic plan and focused execution. The key element to success is simple; everyone involved must execute precisely and in a common collaborative framework to advance the charter. There must be a commitment to a full-on, often exhaustive effort and focus. This is a space I've lived in for over 20 years, successfully and repeatedly. My strengths lie in visionary business planning and strategy. I can take role as an advisor, collaborator, and/or team member to execute on plans or strategic initiatives. I develop Business Plans, Strategic Plans, Operational plans (Marketing, Sales, and/or Technical), create financials, and help recruit top management. I help clients positively deliver results to their bottom line, become "viable", and position for a high(er) probability of an 'exit' when the time is right. I help deliver organized, business-focused narratives and messaging that inform, both internally and to external stakeholders, whether they be vendors, clients or investors. I provide Business Advisory services, across multiple disciplines and verticals, for companies that can benefit from my experience, expertise & help. I find many with great business "concepts" but not yet matured to a level where they can effectively advance their goals or secure capital. My time and focus is now spent helping start up and early stage companies achieve success while enjoying some of the fruits of my career to date. 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 at a granular level. I peel back the layers to clearly assess the business, the market dynamics, the team, and strategy. I request information on financials and ongoing capital requirements. I need to see 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. Vision cannot stand on its own..., it begins with what I like to call "the big idea" but it must then evolve into a collective strategy with all members focused and on board. Then, with the right team, and even a little luck, success can manifest itself in a successful outcome. This path can sometimes get mired in the order of things yet it all comes down to one simple equation; "structured execution". Building a great team.., making sure capital is available and properly spent.., knowing where to position against competition..., these things and more become essential to the ultimate goal of business success. A great business concept can not exist in a vacuum. It requires a sound, executable strategy and lots of serious hard work. Allow me to hear about your business goals and strategy at a high level. 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 that helps you advance your goals. To your success and to making your 'big idea' a reality.  less

    My unique approach to financial management is designed to reveal both insights and opportunities. Building upon a background of National Account Management, Commercial Banking, Brokerage Services, and Senior-Level Financial Consulting, I draw upon a wealth of practical, first-hand experience to benefit clients in the ways that matter most: A broad-based understanding of business finance that achieves defined, sustainable goals. A common theme linking disparate industries at different stages of development and maturity comes courtesy of an understanding of the flow of every dollar, from sales to expense to operating income. Examined through a lens that is customized for every client and each business, and reflects their unique challenges and competitive advantages. The result is what I call Functional Financial Management. It’s not merely the numbers, but the story inside the numbers. Customized, relevant, and with a practical utility that can be nothing short of game-changing. These are also the hallmarks of financial management guidance provided through Business Expedition Partners, the financial consulting firm I founded to offer clients around the world specialized financial consulting. From start-ups to mature companies, it is an honest, hard-working, unrelenting attention to detail that delivers results exceeding expectations. Top 5% Odesk Contractor!  less

    Over the last 10 years, I have developed very good customer service, sales and leadership skills. To achieve this, my experience in the call center industry has honed me not only to become a top performing Customer Service and Sales Representative, but also a expert on reporting, documentation, training and team and program management. To start a career in a virtual set-up such as ODesk, I strongly feel will allow me to share my skills, continue honing them and achieve continuous learning/ growth in an environment that requires self-reliance, discipline and internal motivation. Also, if given an opportunity, I am also considering to eventually lead/ train a team to achieve their greatest potentials within the Odesk environment.  less

    Demonstrable skills and experience in both Enterprise and SME (MSP Clients) Project and Programme Management, based on the principles and methodologies of industry standards such as PRINCE 2 and PMP. With further demonstrable experience of managing teams in excess of 30 members including local hire and remote resources, together with all aspects of annual performance appraisals, and contractor negotiation, with an excellent understanding of the latest ITIL methodologies for ITSM. This specific experience has been gained from over 10 years of managing distributed teams and environments across multiple time zones and cultural forums, through Application and Infrastructure Support and Project and Change Management to have a complete understanding of the both SDLC and ITSM and how to make them successfully coexist. I have developed and managed enterprise grad SLA’s, OLA’s, UC’s and KPI’s framework, for both internal IT staff and external supplier resources to meet with industry and global regulatory requirements. Responsible for ALL Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) reporting and owner of ALL SOX controls for UK. I have a professional, adaptable, and competent approach to both Resource and Stakeholder management. I am more than comfortable with working in an integrated IT environment or as a consultant. I have a strong mix of corporate enterprise, SME and entrepreneurial experience, and to expand on that, my experience has afforded me the ability to learn the complex matrix management structures and business models which predominantly gained within Global Financial Services Industries (Investment Banking and Global, Corporate and Specialty Insurance). Where conversely some of my most recent and earlier career experience was based in one of the most competitive customer service industries, and to achieve success in this, I had to be flexible to market conditions, so that I could maintain strategic focus so as to continually meet my financial targets. The combination of my career experience has provided me with the opportunities of working in USA, Belgium, France, Spain, Gibraltar, Abu Dhabi and secondments to Brazil, Mexico and APAC, for projects that I was either managing or transferring to local piers and latterly I had responsibilities for USA, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and Denmark.
