About Bmm
Joined December 2014
Born and brought up in Southern Africa. Now living and residing in Australia. I come from a Marketing and Corporate background and now find myself in a new world of on line sophistication that I am wanting to master.

Boy how sales and marketing have moved into a new paradigm shift, in this the 21st Century!

When I was seventeen I had my heart set on playing guitar and singing. I was doing great as a front line vocalist for various local rock bands. I was studying commercial art and writing and playing music.

Then the horrors of war came knocking on my door and I found myself, against my will, conscripted and thrown into a vicious stupid, needless, bush war. That war did two things for me. It left me with mental scars but it drove me to realise that mankind was indeed in more trouble than I had previously thought. So the researcher and the seeker for knowledge within me was born. There had to more to this game of life than met the eye!?...surely!

From there I have worked my way through from the bottom to the top of the corporate tree. I now spend my days writing and looking for contract work in the fields of business and especially project management.

Every step that we take in life is taken along a road to "somewhere." My job as a project management /consultant is to help facilitate the dreams of others to arrive at the destination they intend/ intended to, no matter how short or long that journey takes.

It is my passion to help people reach their intended goals and get there by reaching that goal or goals as quickly, efficiently and safely as possible,one milestone after another till that final dream/outcome is achieved.

In truth right now at my perceivable age of 57 it has been a challenge to find permanent work again, so I have taken to the WA network to find my way in this on line jungle gym on line world. I want to move to get ahead of the next trend/trends.

So in a nutshell I have a good solid business background and experience, am excited about humanitarian projects and love writing and listening to many kinds of music. You could find me writing/researching, whilst happily listening to Led Zeppelin, Metallica or the foo fighters or that or most progressive rock acts, both past and present.
I can and have trained and developed brand new project managers that can enter society and get projects done. I am currently working on a project management book for children and English as a Second Language students.

My goal is to set up an ideas factory,on line, and once I can understand the techniques that are needed to be understood, I can get that factory properly established and help others, hundreds of thousands,even millions, through meaningful blogging, training and development videos and well written articles etc, whilst I keep looking for project management work/jobs I need and want to do.

I currently live with my wife and a cat called Onyx near the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. I look forward to meeting many new people from all different walks of life who may share similar goals and interests. I know that I can be of help to you and I know that there are many that may be of help to me. We live in a reciprocal world.

So I enter Kindergarten again. I enter as a small child willing to grow and learn a new subject.

Thank you for reading my profile.

Oh before I forget I am A religious, A political, and will support only people and groups/projects that work towards peace and tolerance on earth. I respect and love all forms of life and believe in its right to exist and survive.

My research has now led me to see that we all have a responsibility to be that part of the GOOD changes that are coming. Many people are frightened and disillusioned. That is understandable but not overcomeable.

Knowledge is a key to open many doors to new levels of design, creation and thinking. Social Media is a new wagon train that is discovering wondrous new lands and opening up vast seas of hitherto unknown islands of understandings. I just want to be part of that pioneering initiative and do my part.

You have a huge benefit coming from a marketing background. The only thing to remember is that you cannot apply offline marketing tactics to online marketing. But I guess you already discovered that :-)

Hi Brendan?,

The lady prior to me referred to that, but all I can find is Bmm. I'm Russell. Quite a background you have, and you've had some real experiences. Different as yours is from mine, we have similar ideological outlooks. I dream, myself, of getting similar rebuilding projects going on in certain areas. The West Side of Chicago comes prominently to mind because that's where I was when I began having that dream. beginning my own recovery.

I would like to think that I find some way to qualify to help you. In this environment, certainly, I would very much like to be able to ask for your help.

It is a pleasure,
Russell

Hello Brendan, just replied on my profile page :) I agree, peace on earth..... God Willing one day soon! Good luck with WA and wish you every success :)

bmm Premium
Jenny. Thanks for the wishes. Regarding peace, that comes with trust. Trust comes through honest communication and having a track record of being able to deliver what we promise. Success is the journey one takes to overcome barriers and learn as we go, as we grow and reach our various outcomes (goals). I look forward too many more inter reactions between us. It is always good to know that there are like minded people out there willing to share the journeys with each other.
