unpaid work commissioned by

Volodymyr (Vol) Berezhniy

On the 14.07.21 I was appointed unpaid secretary for the Harvard Business School OPM Club by Volodymyr Berezhniy. In the past I had only leadership roles in a few Harvard clubs but I accepted to help.

The content of some of these meetings is interesting to share, and is already in the public domain. So I publish here below some of the notes I took, to amplify the impact of the insights they can convey.
 
I cannot continue to gift unpaid work for more than 3 months, but I hope those I helped (OPMs, external speakers I lobbied to invite) can reciprocate, helping me to find paid management consulting contracts.
 
See more info at the end of this page about my experience in management consulting since 2015, and 30 written testimonials about my work in management consulting,  from stakeholders for which I added value.

On the 14.07.21 Volodymyr Berezhniy asked me also a paper with arguments in favour of his eCommerce fund's vision: I proposed I'd draft a three hours contract to change his business model, then write.

(Reasons for this: in 2nd slide on the left)

 
As he works only with a pro-bono team, for what he told me (and sometimes pays in case he likes the work, but without binding contracts) I had to decline his terms, so at the end I didn't consult him.

Testimonials

All 30 written comments regarding Cristina's work are evidenced in writing by their original MS Outlook files and a S.A.R. received via email, archived in its original delivery email.

“As a project manager Cristina has consistently worked at Senior Consultant level.

She has managed the rollout of our biggest process improvement project.

The training guide she produced for the process improvement project was excellent and will be a key enabler for the transition phase.

I have been particularly impressed with her analytical skills and her ability to break problems down into key components and identify workable solutions.

Her briefings have been well researched and to a very high standard.”
