Career Summary / Professional Profile
I am a professional presentable worker and have strong Financial / Project Management / Administrations skills. These skills include normal day to day tasks such as sending and replying to emails and phone calls (internal and external clients), report writing, database updating, and record keeping of events, updating of project files, controlling budgets on projects, debtors and creditors, reconciliations, debtor collections. I have set myself a challenge on debtor’s collections and have brought down the collections to < 2% outstanding payments, which was a huge improvement of what it used to be before I took over. I have been extensively involved in Forecasting / projections and managing projects timelines and schedules.

I am a team player, self-starter, dedicated, loyal and a hardworking person. I am an energetic person, performs at my best under pressure and set my own goals and normally exceeds them.
