About me

 

Passion, business minded, and extreme determination are the main qualities I possess. No matter what the opportunity is, I have always been able to develop innovative solutions and impactful results. I am a distinguished MSc. International Marketing graduate from Birkbeck University of London. I have simultaneously managed multinational accounts from brainstorming up until production which resulted in successful branding and website projects. My solutions increased client sales within the span of three months, which eventually resulted in client satisfaction and retention. I have a proven record of maintaining strong relationships with clients and working with suppliers to deliver high quality work on time. I am a quick learner with exceptional communication and presentation skills alongside my creative problem solving skills. My dedication, energy, curiosity, and ability to think strategically make me a very valuable addition. I am currently looking for a challenging and rewarding experience that will provide me with the further exposure I need to advance my career in international marketing.
