Consummate Business All-Rounder
Last active: 12/12/2013
My name is Dan. Over the past eleven years I have been involved in various capacities in the research, establishment and operation of a number of businesses, predominantly within the financial planning, telecommunications, wholesale and retail sectors.
Business is my passion. From the very initial contemplation of a potential venture, to nurturing and developing the idea to a stage where research can be done regarding its feasibility, to taking the idea to market for trial, and then operating and optimising its potential, the business process enthrals me.
I believe that I have gained a skill set, which has enabled me to make informed entrepreneurial decisions based on effective research and the ability to think and analyse information objectively and critically. Having had sales and marketing experience from the 'ground up' with a range of products from $1 fishing floats through to $500k software packages has enabled me to identify target markets for products and services, develop and identify purchasing imperatives, and establish effective price points, which are both realistic and profitable.
Working with business partners, staff, managers, clients of all varying cultures, personalities, experience and expertise has taught me how to operate effectively both independently and within team environments, including task management and prioritisation, time management, opportunity and risk analysis, and conflict management and resolution. Managing international, cultural and lingual differences has become part of my business routine when organising products for shipment from various companies.
In a nutshell, I have moved away from full-time employment in pursuit of a more freelance role helping others in their businesses.
I would class myself as a business all-rounder in terms of my experience.
Please feel free to contact me for a further discussion if I can be of assistance.
