Services offered

    My focus over my career has been a combination of business administration and finance. I had managed the finance functions of a small business as well as the business processes effectively with my natural writing aptitude. SOP's, SLA’s, Business development, Key account manager, Payroll administration, Debtors/Creditors control, Business analytics and Bookkeeping were daily tasks. The goal I am striving to achieve is to utilize my strategic, broad business vision and detailed orientated attributes to grow my skills and knowledge, within an environment that is much larger and more demanding than a SMME.
