 okra eXpress cuts a slice across the globe offering creativeoriginal classic and unique services in line with quality and high professional standards. okra eXpress was set up by Bertha Oluwole,  highly regarded, bright, creative, clever, fair and a quite international observer with excellent listening skills, retentive memory and the abilty to take in mental notes on matters and of course, taking positive steps to be vocal to help put right in "great faith", unfair, improper, flippant and unacceptable behaviour affecting others often the voiceless who, for reasons that should never be acceptable, allows themselves to be naive for others to put them in a vulnerable and obliging position which should never be encouraged. Bertha is an astute and strategic public relations, legal and public affairs professional, business intelligence and legal researcher, communications, media, events logistics, and media practitioner with excellent project management, tenacity, diplomatic and people management skills. Bertha's practical experience is underscored by her diverse academic  qualifications in Politics (Major), with European Studies, law, post graduate degree in Business Administration -  Executive MBA - general and strategic business management - Applied Information and knowledge management - digital technology,  journalism - advanced media law. Bertha began her career working in litigation, advocacy, strategic administration, legal and public affairs. Bertha is admired by many for her positive interpersonal skills, and fair approach. When matters are left in Bertha's great hands, she is better able to stand tall for the benefit of others to benefit and flourish. Bertha is kind at heart and quite generous with her unconditional love and affection. Bertha has been a board member for an organisation regulated by the UK authorities. Bertha served on the board whilsy working in her capacity as  UK government employee dealing with strategic PR, legal and public affairs. In her role in ligitation, Bertha was instrumental in translating legislation into workable policies and procedures, setting up and leading a specialist project team to better improve the quality of the legal services, drafting legal manuals, delivering advocacy skills training to the specialist project team, representing her employers in various courts across the UK, including Dacorum county court, formerly, Central London County Court in Baker Steet, conducting advocacy in court, presenting in excess of 160 legal cases per month in court, offering unrivalled intellect, and running files in all areas of the law. Bertha has a particular skill in entering into negotiation with opponent barrister and presenting the full fscts of the matter to the judges in court of course after delving deeper into the legal matter, utilising her strategic legal research capabilities. Bertha is skilled in creating strategic communications and credible links with opponent barristers, often resolving legal intricacies without challenge in the best interest of her ex-employers. Bertha has been involved in series of high profile and often complex cases on behalf of her ex-ployers during her career in litigation. The interpretation of legislation and ensuring compliance with legislative and regulatory requirements forms a significant part of Bertha's work. Quality legal services loomed large in all the her roles Bertha carried out in legal and public affairs. Bertha was head hunted by her ex-ployer and offered a strategic role as legal affairs consultant to set up a specislist project team and take a leading role to strategically project manage and redress unresolved and complex legal challenges her ex-employer was faced with.
▶The head hunting blurb sent to Bertha from her ex-employer stated the following:
Hi Bertha,
Re: Long time no speak
As always with me there is a business angle! I am after someone with legal experience to work on a project at .... to harness the problem of .... and proceed to
go to court as necessary. I mentioned I knew someone who was legally qualified and single minded.... they said who! I said Bertha. Mr... said yes she worked with us and her work was high quality. You have obviously been doing the right things. Are you available....? If not lets have lunch sometime?
Kind Regards, Mr.... Head of ....◀
Incidentally, Bertha was nearing the completion of her fixed term contract elsewhere for another client conducting advocacy in court in relation to their back log of unresolved complex court cases. Once Bertha successfully completed her fixed term contract, she then immediately started her legal affairs consulting role offered by her ex-employer. Upon arrival at her new role as legal affairs consultant, the managing director chaired a meeting with Bertha and the other relevant heads of department and Bertha was presented with the brief from the previous board meetings with the bundle of documents relating to the unresolved and complex legal challenges Bertha was hired to sort out. Bertha then realised that the magnitude of the unresolved legal matters were extremely severe and complex, than intially thought. Nevertheless,  six weeks into accepting the legal affairs consulting role,  Bertha swiftly translated legislation into strategic and workable policies, and quality practice that essentially saved her ex -employer in excess of £500,000, possibles fines, plus court costs for serious breach of legislation and of cause reputation damages was also brewing in the background. Bertha also identifed and swiftly rectified a technical glitch in the computer digital system and also encouraged her ex-employer to practice and swiftly put in place creative communications mechanism. Bertha also set up strategic digital systems to expedite the process of administration. To help redress the legal intricacies effifiently and in the best interest of her ex-employer, Bertha cleverly  incorporated intricate knowledge, regulatory compliance, appropriate business dynamics, strategic human capital management, organisational behaviour, applied information and knowledge management concept, analysis and framework into the project to gain profound effect. Quality practice and transparency were of utmost importance for the specialist project team under Bertha's leadership and clear direction. Associated records of file notes and quality legal practice guidelines were published via the Intranet and resource library which Bertha helped to set up as well as the concept of hot desking were proved extremely positive. Incidentally, a UK regulatory body highly praised the sterling efforts of Bertha's work and placed a high premium on the strategic policies and quality legal services along with the policies Bertha drafted and implemented to address the legal problem. Incidentally, the UK regulatory body also confirmed that Bertha's strategic policies, and her clear approach and all the measures taken under Bertha's strategic leadership and direction exceeded their expections and advised that other organisations experiencing the unresolved legal challenges should learn from and mirror image Bertha's strategies into their agenda plan of action and work plan. Incidentally, a UK government department in Whitehall, swiftly welcomed and embraced Bertha's legal affairs strategic policies and advised that Bertha's strategies ought to be used as a blue print for other organisations to implement into their policies and procedures. Bertha is a result orientated, innovative, creative and modest professional, who takes a long term and positive view of things. Bertha has exceptional level of diverse expertise and a wealth of knowledge ideal for public, private sectors and industries in this digital modern age. In the course of Bertha's career in litigation, legal and public affairs, she took up a number of opportunities which presented themselves, but which have not taken her away from work with a predominantly journalism, public relations, media, legal and public affairs dimension. Bertha held two jobs whilst she worked fulltime in litigation in the 90's - yonks ago in the 20th century, to be precise, offering her diverse capabilities through the provision of legal services, she also worked on a part time basis at the BBC,  where she gained considerable quality training and experience in journalism at that time she was also nearing the completion of a part time university course in European Politics and the Media. Bertha was very fortunate to gain quality experience in line with high professional standards in journalism, presenting and producing BBC news under the strategic leadership and direction of ▶BBC's Shaune Ley, a highly regarded, courteous, fine, well polished and honourable BBC journalist and presenter, a noble, gracious and polite gentleman with adorable mannerisms, and notable credits presenting:
→ The World at One
→ The World this weekend
→ Dateline London
→ BBC Radio 4
BBCs Shuan Ley's deligent work will ever live in my memory". Bertha adds◀
Incidentally, yonks ago in the 90s, the 20th century, Bertha worked with the talented and professional team at the BBC to produce BBC Newsroom South East's previous news programme.
→ BBC Newsroom South East was BBC's regional news programme for South eastetn England. It was launched on Tuesday 28 March 1989 as the succcessor to  London plus, the South east.
→ The programme was in turn replaced by Sound Today in the Heathfield coverage area between 1992 - 2001, (When this area was switched to South East, today and the Oxford coverage area from October 2000). South East today in Bluebell Hill and Dover coverage areas from September 2001 and BBC London News in Crystal coverage area from October 2001.

Many years later after Bertha gained journalism experiece at the BBC, she received an invitation to participate in the BBC's current affairs programme, chaired by BBC's David Dimbleby, a highly qualified polite, gracious, courteous, fine and well polished honourable journalist and presenter, who is not in any way intellectually arrogant. How refreshing! Bertha adds. At the time Bertha registered her interest and attendance to participate in the BBC Question Time, Bertha was working full time in litigation as a UK government legal and public affairs employee and also a board member for an organisation regulated by the UK authoroties. Never the less, Bertha attended and positively participated in the BBC Question Time on Thursday, 11January 2001 in her capacity as a concerned general member of the public. And this was what Bertha said to the BBC Question Time audience. "I am fully aware of Lord Blah blah blah's positive and robust agenda plan of action. But given the circumstances currently subsisting, I think there is a need to expediate the process of carrying out an investigation sooner, rather than later. ▶" Bertha's unedited, swift, punchy and straight to the point soundbites delivered in the BBC Question Time debate on Thursday, 11 January 2001 was well received◀ → Here's yet another swift, pinchy and straight to the point soundbites that came out of the BBC Question Time on Thursday, 11 January 2001, ▶ {Why on EARTH is it that some young girls, youths, {the young females who are not girls, but not yet women NEVER feel adequate and completely fulfilled about themselves UNLESS after they have had breast implants? Why? Tell me, talk to me, why on EARTH do these young girls feel this way about themselves?}◀fast forward 21st century → breast implant... precisely that's what we are talking about >>> this is still happening - oh dear, you sometimes wonder! This is very sad, dissapointing and outrageous! ← okra eXpress adds.
The BBC swiftly sent Bertha a copy of the BBC Question Time debate
in VHS video format. Bertha subsequently converted the VHS video format into DVD digital video using her quality skills and diverse capabilities in the area of digital technology - applied Information and Knowledge management, which she gained as part of her post graduate degree in Business Administration, Bertha successfully completed with high top credit - in simple terms, ▶distinction◀ ▶Bertha is a modest genius and not just a pretty face◀Bertha was actually thrilled to have been given the great opportunity to participate in the BBC Question Time debate yonks ago on Thursday, 11 January 2001 shortly after the end of the 20th century to be precise. Incidentally, The BBC Question Time panel consisted of:
→ Trevor Cavanagh - Political Editor, The Sun Newspaper
→ Oscar winning independent film producer, Lord David Puttman
→ Conservative MP, Hon. Julie Kirkbride
→ Liberal Dem MP, Nick Harvey
→ Labour MP, The Rt. Hon Margaret Beckett
