About me

I am an extremely passionate events coordinator with an aptitude for hard work and progression. Since I started my career within the events sector in 2015, I have worked across multiple projects and learned valuable skills about running events onsite as well as from an office. Not only do I understand event logistics, but I have experience managing budgets and diary management. What I am looking to explore further is my client liaison skills as I am passionate about building relationships which can benefit my work. Since graduating with a 2.1 in events management in June 2018, I have been working on my project management skills which have massively strengthened my time management and communication skills. I strive to exceed in every job I do, and I know my energy and enthusiasm will benefit your business and I will be equally rewarded by working with you. ,
