UNITED ARAB EMIRATES OUTSOURCING FREELANCER
Abdul Latif Kureshi
Availability of outsourced services as consultant/ analyst/ report writer.
I have recently concluded a 30-year long and successful career as a senior consultant in a top management consultancy firm in the Middle East region. The firm has its client base not only in the Middle East but also in Europe, America and the Far East. I am basically a management accountant but a three decades of continuous stay in consultancy environment, often as team leader, has made me develop a variety of skills and multi-disciplinary approaches to tackle any kind of corporate problems.
Today, I feel absolutely comfortable in any assignment on management, marketing, finance, accounting, HRM, TQM etc. For nearly half of my tenure in consultancy, I was seconded to work as full time executive as CEO, CFO and Executive Consultant in client companies. I had the opportunity to work on assignments for a number of UN organisations, International Chamber of Commerce, France, and other international entities including WATA (Switzerland). In the Middle East, I have worked in Galadaries, a large conglomerate in Dubai, as Group Chief Accountant and Deputy General Manager Finance; in Al Shaab Trading Establishment, a major food distributor in Abu Dhabi, as General Manager and in G&M International, a large multi-brand electronic retailer and the exclusive distributor in UAE for Bose speaker systems, as Executive Consultant. For my clients, I have undertaken field researches and have analysed and presented the results to the Boards. I have also prepared a large number of successful bank loan and re-scheduling/re-structuring proposals and have helped in working capital management for our clients.
I have completed numerous assignments in distributive trades, service marketing, manufacturing operations and marketing and management strategies in a variety of industries. A major part of my area of specialisation is to produce corporate financial analysis, not just on the basis of ratio analysis, but beyond ratio analysis. I have the knack and the ability to search and pick up critical points from financial statements/ chairman’s, CEO’s reports to help develop future strategy directions for those companies.
I do recognise that the above services provided off-site can be no substitute for on-site consultancy work. However, they can provide tremendous help to the on-site consultants as their raw material, from which they can accept or reject my conclusions after on-site verification and discussions with the clients, and thereby make considerable savings in the investigation time and costs.
Currently I am engaged as an off-site consultant for a local FM radio station which has plans for cross-border expansion on the basis of franchise agreements. The work involves investment appraisal, drafting MOUs, agreement evaluations, manpower planning and asset valuation. I have a small team of competent workers to assist in timely completion of work. I work under the brand name of ‘First Outsource’ and I can receive and deliver work by e-mail. As a veteran consultant, I can guarantee absolute confidentiality on both the clients’ identity, the content of the work involved, and any weaknesses revealed during the study.
Should you be interested, kindly indicate the kind of remuneration you could offer for off-site consultancy services, expected volume of work you may contract out monthly and the proposed mode of payment.
