I have quickly progressed from running a small live music venue in Hoxton to a medium sized experimental Cocktail Bar & Restaurant in Islington, onto promoting & marketing a large Bar, 50s Diner and Boutique Cinema in Balham. Since September 2014 I have been the Head of Group Marketing & Events for The Breakfast Group, looking after six sites and eight brands in and around Oxford Street, Bloomsbury & Soho. I have helped put together and promote events for a lot of private clients but also for the following corporate clients; Nintendo, Red Bull, Sky, Audi, Elle Magazine, The Sacred Heart Foundation, Illuminati Jeans, the World Rally Championship, Team GB Basketball Team, Burton Snowboards, Route One, Corona Beer and 42 Bellow Vodka to rattle off a few. I've also help set up and create 'brands'? with third party stake holders and for in house events at each venue I've worked at. My ambition is simply to carry on working for bigger and better firms with bigger and brighter ideas and projects, hopefully that can encompass my passion for great food, drink & entertainment.
The Breakfast Group is a restaurant and bar operator in Central London, where I employ my hard-working, enthusiastic and creative event and marketing skills to help manage offline and online presence, developing our digital marketing strategy and drive sales. Based at our Head Office in just off Oxford Street I regular visit to each of the company venues, to work closely with our Restaurant/Bar managers. I report directly to the Head Of Group Operations and Managing Director where I am part of an important decision making group. Each of our current venues are strong, successful brands but will always benefit from fresh ideas and approaches to marketing, something I bring to the table.
