How I can help you
I would welcome the opportunity to help you accomplish your business start up dreams, your business improvement goals, and your business expansion plans. I have extensive experience in start-up, small business, and large corporate business operations and management.
Successful business start-up, operations and management throughout the business life cycle is the result of careful planning, hard work, goal oriented focus, common sense decision making, diligent follow through, results assessment and corrective action if required, and back to planning for the next phase. I have started up businesses in the engineering-construction, management consulting, petroleum, and waste management industries. I have provided consulting assistance to new business ventures and existing organizations in the child care and elderly care, telecommunications, and utility industries, and a cabinet level federal agency. I have been a member of the field construction, project development and implementation, project management, marketing and sales, and executive management teams of small, mid-sized, and very large corporate business organizations in the engineering-construction industry.
Dedicated to my local community, I have had the privilege of working with youth, dislocated workers, and veterans workforce development programs. In semi-retirement working with business owners and law firms I have a winning track record in construction contract dispute resolution and construction claims litigation support assignments. I taught Managerial Marketing at Henry Cogswell College. I am a published business writer and professional editor.
