    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)

    European Finance - Cash Collection/Accountancy

    United Kingdom - Last active: 21 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

    Cash Consultancy in Europe & French Canada. Do you have difficulty using French and German language to oil your business transactions? Using these languages can help the process in getting your unpaid invoices in French and German speaking territories paid. This is where I come in. Using French and German language skills, I contact by telephone, email and letter your clients, working towards getting unpaid European/Canadian invoices paid into your bank account. I work with your ledger information, the invoice itself and client contact details to help bring the funds in, and this consultancy service is all done virtually, online. The service is not one of factoring, I do not have any physical input on the funds themselves, which are always paid direct into YOUR account. The fee for the service is as follows: 2% commission payment of the net invoice value paid upfront - with a 100% refund on failure to obtain payment back to you ; plus 2% final commission payment on the day the funds hit your bank account. The basis on which the work is done, is of a recurring nature. Cash Consultancy Europe is a service that you can use every month to aid your cashflow in your business.Especially in those, sometimes tricky markets, where language skills can be a real asset in creating beneficial relationships with your European French, German & Canadian French clients. My business statement is that I proactively seek a relatively small portfolio of regular recurring clients with relatively small European/Canadian ledgers. In such companies with these relatively small ledgers, it is not cost effective to employ staff to facilitate cash collection. This is a specialist linguistic - credit control service which can be very useful for the development of your international company - whatever your level of business transactions with overseas territories...........Contact me today for more information

    Freelance Translator and Climate Researcher

    United States - Last active: 15 days ago - Tests: 4

    I'm a freelance translator between English and Spanish, while working in Hawaii as a climate researcher and adaptation policy specialist. Although I have only recently joined the online freelance community, I have over 10 years of writing and research experience in English and Spanish throughout the US, Latin America, and the Pacific islands. I speak Spanish fluently and English natively, and as a PhD and peer-reviewed author I have excellent language intuition and writing structure. Most of my Spanish/English writing experience has been in the sciences and humanities, around themes such as climate, tourism, conservation, water quality, and health. I have also translated website materials between languages, as well as brochures, manuals, surveys, and interview transcripts. For an online example of one of my favorite ongoing translation projects, please visit www.livinggalapagos.org, a fascinating and highly nuanced series of Spanish-language interviews translated into English with residents of the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador. I always look forward to new challenges, and I'm happy to take on exciting new projects!
