I have always excelled in English, grammar and spelling since I was a child. My professional career gave me the opportunity to prepare Internal Audit reports, prepare training materials, train hundreds of employees and numerous customers how to use software applications, and make presentations to management. I have always found the training aspect of my job to be rewarding, and hope I can utilize my skills to help someone improve their English, reading or grammar skills.
I worked for a Fortune 500 company for over 20 years, first as Internal Auditor, then in the Information Technology Department as an analyst and later as Project Manager. In my first role as analyst, I was the lead for the implementation of the Accounts Payable module of the Oracle e-Business Suite for all of the US manufacturing and corporate locations. This included documentation of business requirements, process mapping, solution design, configuration, preparation of training materials, and the training of all employees at the manufacturing locations in the US, Canada and Mexico. Later as Project Manager, I was responsible for the implementation of Accounts Receivable Systems for the Credit, Collections and Cash application departments in the US and Mexico. This included Accounts Receivable, Collections and a self-service payment module (I-Receivables) used by external customers. Again, I was involved with every phase of project management. I prepared project management documentation, and prepared training materials for employees and customers. I conducted in-house and off-site training classes, facilitated meetings and made numerous presentations to management. I also made a presentation to over 100 people at the Oracle User Group conference (OAUG) citing the commercial advantages of the I-Receivables software to my company and its customers. For all jobs and projects, I utilized excellent oral and written communication skills with both internal and external customers.
