Work Experience Summary: When I started my first job as university graduate, the company counted 3 employees and one major business reference. Soon appointed as Business Development Manager, I was
asked to coorindate the strategic and commercial development of the company.
Within a period of 7 months, I singlehandedly initiated and coordinated the
launch of a large scaled cooperation project with the local Chamber of
Commerce, joined my CEO in negotiating the setup of a joint-venture with the
top management of the Tlocal public transportation operator,
presented our work at some high level conferences, obtained considerable press
attention, and fully coordinated my own initiative to submit a project tender
for EU funds (with 13 partners from 7 countries) for the development of one of
our lead products. These different initiatives helped to raise our profile and
significantly boost our turnover. Today, the company has 11 contributors, reached
break-even operations and is slowly becoming a reference in its sector.
Having learned a lot form this first experience I now feel ready to spread my own wings and setup my own business. To assure the funding of my plans I work as independent business development consultant for clients across the UK.
