    Internationally oriented creative project manager

    Finland - Last active: 22 days ago

    Dynamic and international environment is the kind of atmosphere I feel most at home mainly because of wide international experience and the character of being able to keep many strings in my hands. Project management and risk management are present in everything I do. While I pay attention to details, I always keep the big picture clear. Learning something new every day and seizing the day are guidelines I try to live by. All in all, a project manager with a can-do attitude and ability to adapt to new situations is ready to join your team. So far I have gathered experience from marketing to operational risk management and from event coordination to corporate development (M&A activities). I am now looking for new opportunities in which I could utilize my knowhow of marketing, finance, project management and management in an international environment. In addition to my MBA in general management and finance and BBA in marketing, I have achieved the certifications of: - Project Management Associate by Int'l Project Management Association (IPMA) - General Securities Examination by Finnish Association of Securities Dealers (FASD)

    Professional English/Chinese Translator

    Canada - Last active: 08/02/2014 - Tests: 3

    Over the last seven years, I have been involved with a range of companies and websites performing various types of translations. My core competency lies in both written and verbal Chinese to English, and English to Chinese translation. I attended Brock University to attain my Masters in Education, which has greatly helped acquire numerous unique writing and verbal translation opportunities. My experience has also brought me into contact with natively fluent Russian, Japanese, and French translators. I am open to discussing reasonable time arrangements involving those peers to complete assignments. This means that it is possible to take verbal or written Russian, Japanese, and French, and have it accurately translated into native Chinese.
