    I get a kick out of solving problems and shaping new businesses. It's one of the key reasons I quit the corporate world and set up my own small business consulting company. The more complex the problem, the more interesting it is and the more gratifying it is to solve. If you have a business problem that is hampering your ability to generate more revenue, streamline your operating costs, not bringing in as many customers as you'd like or isn't positively impacting your brand, then we should talk. I will work with you to understand your issue, partner with you to determine the best possible solution and work with you in implementing the solution. Helping small businesses and entrepreneurs accomplish what they set out to do is a passion that has not petered out in the many years I have been consulting. If anything, it has grown stronger with more success. Having a brilliant business idea and setting up a business around it are two very different things. One needs creativity, passion and critical thinking while the other requires discipline, follow-through, pragmatism, innovation and systematic implementation. I understand this very well and I can work with you to establish an organization and business that is set for long term sustainability. As an entrepreneur and consultant, I learn as much from my client and they do from me, and I apply what I've learnt on future projects. Over time, this has helped me become a better consultant and develop knowledge and skill across a wide range of industries. I work collaboratively; I simply do not believe in working any other way. My focus areas: 1. Business Planning and Market Research - I provide business planning and market research services for a wide range of budgets depending on the needs of the client. 2. Sales, Marketing and Business Development - Right from strategy development to the creation of sales and marketing collateral, implementation and project management of sales and marketing plans, I provide end-to-end services. 3. Business Process Design/Improvement/Reengineering - Whether you want to establish business processes for your new company or are looking to streamline and improve your business processes, I can work with you in developing robust and sustainable processes for your business. 4. Quality Management (Lean Six Sigma, ISO 9001) - Are you looking to implement a Lean Six Sigma improvement project or get consulting support to prepare for your ISO 9001 audit? I can help. 5. E-Business Management/E-Commerce (Non-IT) - Whether you have an existing e-commerce business that you want to scale up or you're setting one up from scratch, my experience in setting up a wide range of e-commerce businesses will add value. 7. Project Management - Whatever your business landscape, my extensive project management experience will make sure that your project runs smoothly, on time and within budget. I am very comfortable managing virtual teams and managing freelancers. I've delivered over ten successful projects in the last year alone. 8. Learning Strategy and Instructional Design - Whether you're looking to get expert opinion on the effectiveness of your training curriculum or want to develop a framework for trainer effectiveness, my experience heading training functions of large global corporations will come in handy. Right from developing content for ILT to delivering training programs, you will find a partner for all your training needs here. Industry Experience: 1. Publishing - I know the ins and outs of Amazon, Nook and other POD and e-book publishing platforms. I know what it takes to run a successful publishing business. 2. International Trade 3. Contact Center Operations - Having managed various contact centers throughout my career, I have in depth knowledge of how to set up, manage and scale any contact center operation. 4. Financial Services 5 - E-Commerce  less

    Born and raised in Montreal, Quebec I spent most of my Professional career in law enforcement, security and education translating official documents and acting as an interpreter during National and International meetings, functions and conventions. French is my native and primary language. I have vast experience working for several major American organizations as a liaison, mainly aiding senior personnel to overcome the language and cultural barriers between the United States and Canada. After I became an American Citizen, I worked overseas in several French speaking countries writing translations for the United States Officials and local authorities. I also worked occasionally as an interpreter during official functions. My strength, and what I prefer, is to translate from English to French and my experience in very high profile environments helps me to cope with the pressure of interpretation. My native language is Canadian French with its multiple regional variations. For example; the French Spoken in Quebec City and Montreal is slightly different despite their proximity, so one can only imagine how different the French spoken in the Maritimes could be. I am also fluent in the European Standard International French as well as in the African French and I can adapt my verbal and written delivery accordingly. My experience as a French Instructor at Coastal Carolina University, gave me the opportunity to appreciate even more the beauty of my native language, almost as much as an art masterpiece.  less

    I apply my knowledge of the wide range of IT technologies and processes I have encountered in my career to every new project that I am involved in. I have an innate ability quickly to see the most efficient solution to almost every problem that I encounter. I have saved my past employers both money and manpower with the solutions that I have created. I have worked as a programmer, systems analyst, a Windows/UNIX system administrator, app developer, database architect, process improver, mainframe maintainer, and general all around computer guy throughout my career. When I start a new project I put all of my attention and effort into it until the end because I feel that is the best way to serve my customers. I am always professional in my interactions with all my customers and associates. I have used MS Office to create numerous solutions to various issues in an enterprise environment. The most impactful are listed below. -Created a scheduling database to ensure that all mainframe jobs and other tasks were completed for daily batch and post-processing. This greatly cut down on errors and omissions that were done in the past. -Created a server and workstation application in MS Access for Dental Advisors to review disputed claims. This application worked with mainframe data extracts, an external pictures database, and an internal database. It also gathered input from two other departments. This brought the company in full compliance with regulatory and privacy obligations. -Created a billing database for Small Groups to ensure proper and accurate billing. This helped the company retain business and saved many man-hours of work monthly. -Created many macros for Word and Excel to help others automate repetitive tasks thereby improving efficiency in the workplace. I have created databases in Lotus Notes to store production history. This helped the company comply with legal historical requirements by putting the data in one repository. I designed and created a many-table database to hold mainframe data in order to streamline ad-hoc reporting. I wrote Cobol programs to extract the mainframe's VSAM data into multiple flat files for input into a DB2 database running on an AIX server . This allowed us to create new reports for Sales and others in hours instead of the company's standard of weeks. I was half of the team that was most likely the first VSE mainframe shop to run without a mainframe printer. We utilized a beta version of mainframe TCP/IP software to push reports to a network printer and/or PDF files for emailing. This greatly cut electricity and paper costs as well as an hour from the nightly batch.  less
