I founded my own Event Production company in July, 2014, and started organising live music events in London. I book the bands, do the budgeting, the promoting, schedule stage times, manage tickets and communication between all parties involved and deal directly with contributors. For now, I mainly work with local and national bands in the Psychedelic, Indie, Rock and Folk genres.
I was in charge of several key aspects of the company; such as: Developing a marketing strategy and communications plan, aiming to accomplish the expansion goals of the company. and managing budgets. Attending networking meetings and establishing successful business relationships with potential partners. Contacting and dealing with suppliers and designers in an effort to build a stable branding plan for the success of the company and future branches. Organising promotional events and managing the social media presence of the company, as well as the website, by constantly creating new, relevant content and analysing data in order to identify new trends in the industry and competitors.
I supervised the running of the hostel during the weekend and contributed to the development and improvement of the business by coming up with new and innovative ideas on a regular basis. I was in charge of the front desk, checked in guests, managed the till, provided guests with information and ensured their experience was enjoyable. I also acted on the manager’s behalf when absent. The job demanded excellent organisational and face-to-face communication skills.
