Instructor Biography

Alvaro Santizo, Entrepreneur, Business Consultant

SERIAL ENTREPRENEUR AND CONSULTING FOR OVER 10 YEARS IN LATIN AMERICA AND THE US.

THAT HAS ALLOWED ME TO GAIN EXPERIENCE IN THE FOLLOWING FIELDS:

BUSINESS MANAGEMENT : Project Management, Planning and Execution, Budget Control – Financial Goals, Team Building - Cost Reduction - Process Evaluation and Improvement

LOGISTICS:Inventory Control, Supply Chain Management – Supplier Evaluation, Cost Reduction

SALES AND MARKETING:Market Development, Client Management, Marketing Campaigns (Local and Regional), Pipeline – Sales – Return on Investment

For the last 10 years I have been working with companies that range from multi national to small businesses owned and operated by individuals or small groups of people.

Companies i have worked with are in fields like: Construction - Logistics - Computer and Software Services - Construction Projects - Restaurants - Hardware Stores - Retail Stores - Beverage Industry - Veterinary Hospital Services.

I have had the privilege of learning from great leaders and not so good leaders (Yes you learn as much from a good one as from a bad one), having worked with and for amazing companies and companies that have struggled to succeed.

Because of that, i have been blessed with the chance to help others, execute ideas, create and develop projects and I have been able to fortunately learn from other entrepreneurs, executives and great people who came to this world to make a difference. Just like you.

I have worked for others, helping them build and achieve their dreams, until i got to the point where I decided i would no longer work for anyone else, and pursue my own ideas and dreams. I have started my own companies, with partners, by myself, even purchased one. And having been fortunate enough to have failed in some and succeeded in others, I have decided to share my knowledge and experience. With small business owners who may be struggling, or simply wanting to explore options to improve; as well as other brilliant entrepreneurs that are developing their own ideas and projects to start their small business.
