My Interests

I enjoy household water quality consulting work and sharing the profoundly novel NEXT-RO Point-of-Use Reverse Osmosis by demonstration and workshop presentations. NEXT-RO is an exciting new product with novel design improvements over the antiquated filter housing reverse osmosis systems everywhere. No more steel pressure storage tank and refilling the reservoir with 1 1/2 gallons in a short 35 minutes of pure reverse osmosis water is simply incredible.

Company Size



I bring a recent successful career of doing business with Property Owners and Agents, Architects, Developers and City Planners as well as Consulting Engineers and Contractors in the Twin Cities area. My early career included business development and marketing of scientific products and services.

My technical proposal authoring, account management and business development skills are highly transferable to other science related products and services.

Here\'s some more background and recent work from Gregory Burns.

Business Writing Examples:

Selected Formal Engineering Proposals Authored and Awarded Following Personal Sales Efforts:

USX Superfund Remediation Project, Duluth, $10m, OHM Corporation
MPCA Site Cleanup Contract, $1m, 3 times, STS Consultants
3M Nationwide Environmental Services Contract $2.5m, Earth Technology (then RUST E&I)
St. Cloud State University Campus Parking Ramp, $11m, Palanisami & Associates, Consulting Engineers
Mayo Clinic Eau Claire Hospital Parking Ramp, $12m, Palanisami & Associates, Consulting Engineers

These projects involved highly technical features involving many engineering disciplines and equipment uses. I prospected, positioned, cost estimated, teamed with other architects and engineers and authored the RFP submittal proposal for these projects and hundreds more. My writing skills are advanced and effective in a fast paced business setting.

Capabilities and Background Summary:

At Palanisami & Associates, for example, I was also asked to help Mr. Palanisami\'s sister company, Construction Engineering Laboratory and took the responsibility of saving and growing a construction materials testing and special inspections company. I grew the tiny 3 person construction materials laboratory from three clients to
hundreds and increased the testing and engineering staff all while driving the structural, mechanical and electrical design engineering business. I cost estimated and wrote all proposals.

I succeeded because I quickly learned and applied expertise with field construction QA/QC and ICC special inspections work. I shall do the same with your firm. My strong mechanical aptitude and curious nature along with my personable sales approach with engineers, city and county officials has worked well for me.
Actually, the position affords me an opportunity to become expert in a related technical area and appears to be a natural fit and next step in my career. As I am naturally mechanically inclined and ever curious it is a win-win.

Currently, I am a Next-RO Dealer which means I sell a drinking water unit to home owners by my website; In addition, in 2009 I renewed my science teaching license and have been substitute teaching public school all subjects and grades in the Delano, Orono, Mound and Watertown school districts. I am comfortable being in front of groups and managing a meeting agenda.

Importantly, my decades of experience working successfully in a rich variety of technical and scientific services areas will be a valued skill asset that I can apply from the start. For example, I have sold laboratory instrumentation, biological and medically related products as well as professional engineering services to all levels of public and private clients.
