About

Hi, my name is Michael Bernard. I'm a solopreneur and freelancer from The Netherlands. I'm one of the millions who have visited Thailand and are hopelessly captivated by its charms that I have turned my stay into a more permanent one. One thing that always surprises people here is when I tell them that I'm also a Thai citizen. My mother is Thai and my father is Dutch, so I have dual citizenship.

TeleMarCom

Freelancer

January 2021 - Present

Perhaps one of the greatest lessons you'll learn with remote work is how to stay connected, even when you aren't physically present in the company office. People who are face-to-face with their bosses day in and day out can more easily stay top of mind, but it can be harder for remote workers. With the freelancers at TeleMarCom I don't have that because of the connection we have with each other. That is also the reason why I like working with TeleMarCom.
Their outbound area includes activities such as active telephone marketing, address qualification, presentation and sale of products and services (telesales), appointment scheduling/outbound support, after-sales services , customer retention and reactivation, customer satisfaction surveys , market analysis, market and opinion research, CATI (Computer Assisted Telephone Interview) interviews etc.

Education

Udemy

Full Stack Web Development

January 2022 - Present

I am currently following The Ultimate 2022 Full Stack Web Development Bootcamp at Udemy. You can take the course completely online which is perfect for remote workers. Even if you have zero programming experience, this course will take you from beginner to coding ninja.
I really like this course so far. Lessons are concise and introduce achievable concepts through examples that are easy to follow along with. Only scratching the surface of the course so far, but I feel like I'm in good hands because I was able to put this website together in such a short time.

Open University of the Netherlands

Enterprise Modeling

December 2020 - May 2021

The courses of the Open University are all at academic level and they can all be taken online. Definitely recommended if you are a remote worker.
Enterprise Modeling is a course in the propaedeutic phase of the Information Science programme. In the course you will learn to deal with a pragmatic and participatory approach to Enterprise Modeling with related tools and techniques.
You learn to place Enterprise Modeling in a broader context, namely that of organization, process development(s) and information system (design) and the dependencies between them.
After the course you will be able to distinguish, define and model different elements and levels of abstraction of an enterprise model in an integrated way, and you will be able to apply the theoretical knowledge gained in practice.
