    Corporate & Personal Finance Consultant

    Brazil - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 10

    With almost two decades of corporate experience working on various leading positions in finance for top global companies (Siemens, Nokia, Syngenta), I know how difficult is to get finance information that provides insights about the business' future, and not only a rear mirror view of the past results. You need to know what to do now, and not spend a lot of time understanding what went wrong, why, and how. I can help you get the financial insights you need to take the right decisions to drive your business forward. I have the experience, technical knowledge, and passion to take the whole range of financial tools, processes and analyses and use them to give you the insights and advice you need to take the critical decisions to pave the path to profitable growth. I can show your finance team how to do it too. And I can help you see the risks around the corner and how to prepare for them as well. I provide my current and potential clients with 3 things: 1) Free financial advice by email, skype or phone > If you have a question, doubt, or want to double-check some financial concepts, I am here for you. Just drop me a line at -- and we arrange the best medium to have your question answered. And if I cannot help you, I will tell you so and will help you find out who does. 2) Great Value for Your Money > I can work with you to do financial planning, build business cases for investments and new projects, and train your finance personnel. I can also provide 1:1 couch to you or your management team to enhance the understanding of the fundamentals of your business' financials, bolstering your ability to interpret the figures and make your own judgement. I can also teach you, or anyone from your team, the fundamentals of personal finance, investing, and portfolio management. 3) Support and advise to critical decisions and negotiations > If you need someone to evaluate critical business negotiations, M&A offers, customer proposals, and restructuring budgets, I can do it for you.

    Multidisciplinary Consulting Expert with Fortune 10 Experience

    Sri Lanka - Last active: 23 days ago - Tests: 92 - Portfolio: 5

    HOURLY PROJECTS ONLY, Please! And no time wasters too, please! I work ONLY with clients that have both a professional attitude as well as a prompt payment ability. Hi: Thank you for taking a few moments to glance over my oDesk profile. I possess an excellent command of English (it happens to be my native language!), verifiable accredited U.S. qualifications, authentic Fortune 10/100 work experience, as well as a powerful portfolio of specializations, skills, experience, and capabilities. Although I've passed over 90 oDesk tests and more than 27 Brainbench tests, I regularly add new skills to my portfolio. AREAS OF EXPERTISE: Advanced Project, Program and Portfolio Management (SCPM - Stanford) Business Consulting - Leadership, Management, and Technnological Management of technology Organizational Behavior Organization Design General Management Business Analysis Systems Analysis Marketing: Penetration of new market segments Design of Tests and Examinations - including Psychometric Evaluation Quality Management (CMQ/OE: ASQ Certified Manager of Quality / Organizational Excellence) Quality Engineering (CQE: ASQ Certified Quality Engineer) Software Quality Assurance (CSQE: ASQ Certified software Quality Engineer) CMMI ISO 9001, SPICE, TickIT and other Quality Standards SDLC / Agile Software Development Methodologies Software Technologies and Development Environments Multidisciplinary Training - Individual and Groups GRE and GMAT Examinations Coaching I have a working knowledge of a broad range of software across a wide range of industry segments (general management, international quality systems standards formulation, market penetration, manufacturing, financial services, customer service, training, software development, systems implementation, systems analysis, systems certification and accreditation), together with primary and secondary research capabilities. As far back as 1994, I designed, developed and successfully implemented across several sites, a Refinanced Loan Management System (RLMS) while serving as the joint Management Information Systems Expert and Computer systems Specialist for the SFLCP project funded by the International Fund for Agriculture of the United Nations (UN / IFAD) and the Canadian International Development Agency. During the relatively short period of July 1996 to September 1997, I designed, developed, and successfully implemented what was probably the world's first ISO 9001-compliant Quality Management System that allowed new technology platforms to be added without the need for immediate re-certification. What all this means to you is that you finally have the ability to economically hire someone who is quite comfortable delving into even the smallest details while simultaneously monitoring the "big picture," ensuring you get the most from whatever your assignment requires. Of course, I prefer to work with clients who look forward to taking their companies to the next level in terms of performance, profitability, as well as corporate responsibility. Stay tuned for new skills, technologies and achievements that I will be adding to my portfolio in the very near future. Sincerely, Prasanna L.L.
