Why I’m Changing Direction
I feel that I have taken my business as far as I can at this moment in time. I’m finding that I’m spending too much time on business-related admin and have gotten away from the things I enjoy and am actually good at.
At this point in time, to further my personal and professional development, I need to experience a new challenge, learn new things and get back to focusing on the delivery of a service rather than running a business and having others deliver that service.
What I Can Offer
Other than my technical knowledge and experience of managing staff and liaising with clients I have many other professional and personal attributes to offer a prospective employer;
I can organise myself and work on my own iniative. I can focus clearly on objectives and plan step-by-step on how to achieve them.
I have excellent inter-personal skills and have extensive experience of dealing with a wide variety of clients. This includes presenting both in one-to-one and small and large group settings.
I also have experience of working in teams and managing people, both in business and in previous roles.
I am used to working extremely hard and have extremely high personal and professional standards.
I have lived in America as part of my first degree and more recently lived and worked in Japan for 9 years so I am extremely adaptable and resourceful, a fast learner with a positive, can-do attitude.
Before starting my business I was in teaching so am able to collate, organise and present information in a clear, concise and easy to understand manner.
I taught in a private high school in Japan for seven years, starting as a teacher and then promoted to Director of English Studies. I ran a team of nine British teachers reporting to my own line manager as well as Japanese managers.
