Personal Introduction
 
I think you ought to know who you are dealing with! So, on this page, I will try to convey to you something of the "essence" of me as well as the usual substance.
Originally from Dublin, I have lived most of my life in Maidenhead and moved to Marlow in 1997. So what you get is a true anglophile with an abiding interest in Rugby and the consumption of Guinness.

  

Competencies

 

  • Finance and Accounting

I am very proficient in all aspects of financial and management accounting with a particular flair for financial analysis and reporting.

Translate:I can add-up

 

  •     IT

I am a highly skilled user of Microsoft Office with an emphasis on Excel Spreadsheets and Access Databases. In the business environment in which I operate, I have used a wide variety of software from Oracle to “client- specific” bespoke packages and Sage. I have a fully computerised office with IBM PC, IBM Laptop, Printer, Scanner, Fax, E-mail facilities and broadband access to the Internet.

Translate: Computers - can't take them apart in the dark and put them back together again but I can use them.

     

  • People Skills

  My career has given me an opportunity to both manage  

           and influence people at all levels. I'm a very strong     

           communicator and I really do know how to listen.  

           Translate: Whoever is giving you grief, I can help you sort 

           them   out.

  • Personal Financial Planning

            product. However, I am a qualified Financial Planning

            this area.

Working Life
