Who?

Adopted by God. Husband. Father. Apologist. Evangelist. 

  • By the Myer-Briggs reading I'm an INTJ: a "Mastermind" or "Architect", here are two excellent summaries of my personality 16personalities.com/intj-personality or personalitypage.com/INTJ.html  - with a pinch of salt: sometimes I am quite extrovert when I can talk about God-stuff, being energised by and animated in discussions with Christians or non-Christians. 
  • I'm detail minded & big pictured! That means I can analyse large amounts of information, and summarise them down really well - e.g. this Church Management System guide (don't miss the Excel spreadsheet link at the bottom) or this Conflict Resolution Infographic (click for full version)

Conflict-Resolution-Draft-top-only

  • I'm a manager, not a visionary; someone who gets things done, rather than a visionary. I work best making others look good by providing them with finished projects, efficient systems, reports, websites, etc.

Systems Designer

  • Founded a productivity business "Agape Media Consulting" focussed on matching organisations and business to systems that help them be more productive. Areas include: finance, sales, marketing, web design, IT, project management, CRMs and all the IT areas that come with that.

Finance: what if you could get transactions from the bank automatically, categorise them automatically, and have your reports like Profit & Loss, BAS etc. done automatically? Most businesses would save on average 3.5 hours per week, which is 3.5 x 50 weeks x $30/hr (or your rate) = $5,250 saved.

Sales: what if you could automatically have contact details saved from email conversations, get automatically reminded about leads you haven't contacted recently, and have the whole sales system integrated right next your email? One person saved 10 hours a week and thus $26,000 per year! (10hrs x 52 weeks x $50/hr).

Web design: what if you could cut customer calls by half with relevant and easily accessible information on your site, allow customers to purchase products or donate online, automatically add people to an email list, and connect all your customer data to your CRM automatically? You get the picture: lots of time saved, and in this case a far greater marketing/sales reach.

  • Researched and migrated core systems for FamilyVoice Australia (ongoing), with estimated savings of 1-4 hours per week per staff member (no. hours for all staff x 52 weeks x hourly rate = $$ tens of thousands saved).
