I am honest and approachable with a positive attitude, These interpersonal skills allow me to liaise confidently and effectively with people and also mean that I can network successfully. I am happy to, and regularly call upon previous colleagues and professional networks for cultural partnerships or inquiries relating to new projects. I am confident in the face of a challenge, I am quick to learn new processes and adapt to new surroundings. I am flexible, familiar with and confident in organising then executing work in ever-changing, deadline driven environments. As well as running my first full marathon (Dundee) and reaching 14 000 feet on a mountaineering expedition in the Colorado Sangre de Cristo range this summer, I have contributed to a variety of events initiatives. This included joining the communications team for ‘TEDX Tottenham’ which will be held in November; working with an artist led community to create ‘Flowing Spirit’ festival in Berlin and event stewarding at Glastonbury Festival.
