About me
As the driving force behind a team I possess endless energy and enthusiasm to see a project through from beginning to end. I am continuously curious about new ideas and experiences and happy to step out of my comfort zone. My career has seen me wear different hats and learn skills in many areas, from client relations and stakeholder management to customer facing roles and team leadership. This gives me the ability to bring a fresh perspective to navigate complex challenges and experience in managing creative, production and operational teams. I thrive in fast-paced, challenging workplaces and easily adapt to diverse professional environments. I have excellent communication and people skills and am approachable, with a co-operative and altruistic spirit. For the last 6 years I have worked as a Producer, with incredible brands such as Google, Visa, Vodafone, YouTube, BT and Nike to help them realise their vision for a project. Whether brand experiences, conferences, exhibition stands, tours, campaigns, retail displays, awards or parties we have taken that brief and made it a reality. Creative, motivated & organised event professional looking for the next challenge.
