Business Manager, Project Manager, Content Writer
Last active: 06/13/2012
I am an exceptional Project Manager and Business Consultant (IT Services and Training) and Virtual Personal Assistant to business owners. I am seeking new opportunities to assist you to manage your projects, new business development and improvement initiatives, proposal writing and business planning initiatives.
My 20+ year’s of professional work experience has been high-quality, genuine practice primarily within the information technology (IT) industry. Roles ranging from business management through to IT operations have all contributed to my diverse experience. I have also had much success across a variety of client engagements working with organisations from industry sectors including Banking and Finance (Insurance Australia Group, Lumley Technology, Macquarie Bank), Utilities (Energy Australia, United Energy, Citipower), Manufacturing (Wattyl, Pacific Dunlop) and Technology & Services (IBM, IBMGSA, CSC, AGM IT, Fastlane (Asia Pacific) Institute for Knowledge Transfer).
In my spare time I contribute articles to FrontRunner Magazine, the Philippines leading magazine for Runners. I also write marketing content for websites particularly relating to IT services and IT training.
Client interaction combined with relevant education and training have enabled me to develop skills across a range of disciplines including project management, financial & business management, IT infrastructure & process improvement (including ITIL), systems integration and training provision. I also have an extensive university education spanning the, Information Technology, Engineering and Business domains with a well developed understanding of business & IT strategy and IT outsourcing and offshoring strategies (particularly relating to the Philippines).
I have a unique mix of technology and soft skills rarely seen. My ability to listen, understand and encapsulate requirements, and then to develop and execute on an agreed process to deliver the required outcomes have been critical to my success. Confirming expectations and undertaking regular communication sessions have also played a key role.
These skills, blended with my personal attributes of perseverance, flexibility, attention to detail and a ‘no-nonsense’ attitude make me an invaluable asset.
