    Award winning Marketing pro...Wharton degree

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 8

    My objective is to help clients create marketing/sales leverage. Archimedes discovered the principle of leverage, how a small weight can move a large object. And marketing leverage is how businesses grow. Identify the fulcrum (aka "The Big Idea"), apply marketing weight, and lift sales dramatically. With 20 years of marketing and sales management experience at big (Pepsi, Holiday Inn, AAA) and small companies, I've managed virtually every aspect of strategic planning, marketing and sales program development, collateral and communications production, internet presence, and research and analysis. Two of my programs won national "Best of the Year" honors in separate industries. I have a degree from the Wharton School. I appreciate working with clients who understand the value of talent and experience, and who expect great results.

    Hungary - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6

    Since 2011 I worked on several projects, mainly in the fashion and design industry and in May 2013 I started my own design business, The Changeroom. I learned the ins and outs of the startup ecosystem and have hands-on experience with business planning. Despite my entrepreneurial spirit I like and prefer to work in teams, I managed and coordinated people both online (here on odesk) and offline. I have studied and worked in different parts of Europe, I love(d) to be part of multicultural teams, meet new people, discover new ideas and working methods. I gained extensive knowledge in analysing visual culture eg.: movies, video-ads, still images, examining whether they are aesthetically pleasing and/or efficient as marketing materials. My university studies covered both theoretical and practical training in media and marketing. I'm also educated in general finance and economics and related computer skills, such as presentation building, excel data and chart analysis, also beware I'm a kickass web researcher.:) And last but not at least, I believe in karmic working - I'm trying to find the job that needs me the same way I need it, thus I'm deeply committed to my tasks.
