    I communicate with MOTEL's clients and suppliers, across all platforms; email, telephone, social media and in-person. I manage all levels of production for events. I create copy for email campaigns, marketing posts and the website. I use Adobe software to create menus, presentations and catalogues. I analyse marketing and P&L information, with the help of Excel. I use that data to suggest moves the MOTEL team should make to expand business further.
