I have over 30+ years working for a Fortune 300 Company, being exposed to all parts of the business. My areas of expertise are accounting, finance, marketing, economics, business development and process improvement. In my working experience I must establish econometric models to evaluate the value derived from various marketing programs and, or business cases. This requires the ability to understand data, establishing a hypothesis, and then performing the study and then analyzing the data to draw conclusions about the success or failure of a project. I look forward to sharing this knowledge with students using real application vs. theory in a text book.
I have over 30+ years working for a Fortune 300 Company, being exposed to all parts of the business. In my work, I promote the 8 P's of marketing, although the textbooks only talk to 4. The first two are strategy related. Who are the people you want as customers and what position do you want to compete on. You compete on cost, quality, or product differentiation. Then, it is the well known 4 P's, that I believe need to be thought through sequentially. First, it is product. What product lines up with your strategy? Then, it is the price you charge that lines up with strategy. After that, how do you plan to promote the product? Lastly, how do you plan to distribute (place) your product? The next two deal with execution. What are your policies (credit and collection dealing with the customer)? The last one is processes. How do your processes support your product? I believe with my extensive background in supporting the marketing organizations, I can share my knowledge and enable a student's success.
I recently completed the H&R Block Training and am preparing for seasonal work with them in the pursuit of it growing to other opportunities. I have always had a passion for taxes; I work to hard to earn it, and want to make sure I "avoid" but never "evade" tax liabilities. This coupled with teaching Personal Finance at the University of Phoenix illustrate my strong interest in this area. Taxes are part of the overall financial planning process, and more importantly, the personal "accounting" that I am finding most individuals do not undertake.
