Resume/C.V.

I am an expert in creating, editing, formatting high-quality presentation documents with a quick turnaround. I have worked as Business Presentation Designer for McKinsey & Company and won various awards and recognition while in the Firm

Quickly promoted to a Trainer role (youngest Trainer at McKinsey), I developed and delivered numerous training programs - with data visualization being my spike. I have also worked on projects involving advanced Excel and Word usage. In total, I have 8 years of experience in this field

In my free time I indulge in making mock advertisement campaigns, writing poems, and creating video albums. When you hire me, you get a unique combination of high quality, creativity, and fast turnaround, for your end product
