Service Description

I have successfully written a book which sold out one thousand (1,000) copies, within the first four months, in a territory where reading is not a habit! I am also a motivational speaker who focuses more on entrepreneurial and personal development.

My translation capacities are top-notch. This is evidenced in the fact that I taught French in the university as a Teaching Assistant. Besides, I helped professors in my department to translate their documents. I also set up a bilingual secretarial service which dealt with translations from French to English and vice versa, writing of business proposals in either of the two languages and teaching individuals the French language.

At the corporate level, I have garnered much experience spanning a period of four years. I have served as Customer Service Personnel, Administrative Assistant and currently Executive Personal Assistant to the Managing Director of my company. From the foregoing, your guess is right- I’m the perfect person for all clerical, customer service and administrative duties.
