What did owner Jeff Garner have to say about Susan, click here.

My contributions to Seagate Software were most evident in the quality of the product collateral. I helped save thousands of dollars in re-printing costs by correcting typo and grammatical errors prior to production. After being on the team for a short time at Seagate/Veritas/Symantec, they nicknamed me "Grid-Eyes" for my excellent proofreading ability. They said I look at things from various perspectives "like a grid" and "nothing got by me." To this day, they still send me work to proof from their Orlando office.

Note: Seagate/Veritas is now Symantec

As the Senior Proposal Specialist at Harward Technical Enterprises (HTE), I contributed to the company's leadership position in the public sector market by refining the proposal format and rolled-out a quality assurance program that ensured all customer needs and expectations were met. I created a standardized corporate cost-pricing model to analyze (ROI) return-on-investment. This position allowed me to use my desktop publishing skills to graphically illustrate system configurations, while tailoring each proposal to the individual client. By consistently exceeding senior management expectations, I was promoted to a newly created position of Marketing Support Manager where I performed forecast analysis, contracts administration, tradeshow setup, presentation development, hardware/software upgrades, and coordinated all aspects of the sales and marketing support programs.

As a Proposal Specialist at Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC), my diverse skills allowed me to prepare customized proposals that incorporated marketing, sales, finance, design, and management experience into a format that matched DEC system capabilities with customer needs. By graphically highlighting system capabilities, account executives used my tailored presentations to clearly define DEC's ability to deliver total solutions, thus increasing overall company revenue. My close interaction with both technical and sales management allowed me to become qualified to provide price quotes along with proposal management. Additional support was provided as a WPS-Plus trainer for company employees and clients. DEC was sold to Compaq.
