I love systems! Anything that speeds up daily chores is good, including my Apple Watch!
As an engineer and project manager I learned how to optimize my daily work to get things done.
As a consultant I see how businesses, small or large, are struggling every day with their tasks. It always amazes me that this is especially true with those little things that should be quick and easy. I will show you how I find any information in 30 seconds or less. Life can be easy and this is true for business and at home.
Learn from my experience!
Would you like to know how I reduced about 50% of computer maintenance time?
Would you like to see how I cut 20-30% of my business operations time without missing a beat?
Today I help companies of different sizes to set up and maintain systems. For smaller companies I mainly work with Apple computers, iPhones, iPads and the Apple Watch to increase the efficiency quickly. I typically recommend to add a few low cost and online based tools which will increase the efficiency of every small business dramatically.
I have led several system improvements and system roll outs which often included software that focused on project management, collaboration, task tracking and communication for my biggest and also for my smaller clients.
Teaching is a big part of my daily business and I love it. I started teaching when I was 16 years old when I lead the first BASIC training courses while I was an apprentice to become an an Electrician back in Germany. This was followed by a career as Music Teacher. I never stopped teaching computer systems and software programs inside and outside the companies that I worked for.
Today I teach my clients what systems to deploy and which one to avoid. I also make use of all fundamental learning methods (videos, audio, text and personalized meetings) to increase the success rate for my clients.
I successfully managed several multi million dollar projects inside and outside the automotive industry by leading various global and cross functional teams. I worked on various automotive products (ASIC's, airbag systems, braking systems, electrical drives for windows, sunroofs and steering columns). I'm also familiar with Healthcare products, and Software development teams.
One of my projects included a close work relationship with Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and the Pentagon which provided me the opportunity to participate in a research paper (Los Angeles Air Force Base Vehicle to Grid Pilot Project; LBNL-6154E).
I held the position of the Manufacturing Manager for a leading Healthcare telehealth device. I worked on a sensitive global manufacturing strategy after visiting many manufacturing locations in China, Mexico, Portugal, Germany and the US. I used very stringent ERM systems and a brand new Quality Management System to fulfill the requirements for the medical industry.
I managed a group of 7 Engineers in the automotive industry and supported the local roll out of a new system that changed the way all Engineers needed to work on a global basis. Our team translated customer system requirements into actionable feature requirements for both, hardware and software development.
Digital and analog circuit design for regulator IC's in the automotive industry. We used Unix systems and very powerful software simulation software. Some of my designs are still on the road in various vehicles.
I started my first little venture back in Germany when I opened a printed circuit board manufacturing. I populated the electronic components by hand and tested the designs myself.
Today I have several entities, some with partners, to hold and manage real estate and of course my own consulting business.
