I am a reliable, hardworking and energetic Marketing undergraduate in my third year at Brunel University. I am highly motivated to gain as much experience and insight in the fields of music, events and marketing as possible, so I can sharpen my ability to create captivating content that effects measurable change.
I serve costumers with food, occasionally lead and coordinate teams and prepared refreshments for guests.
In-depth product knowledge, flexibility and willingness to learn about new products, being generally informed about all product sections including those I did not specialise in, and being aware of which one of my colleagues specialised in specific sections all came together to help me provide customer service that would find a way to provide customers with top quality assistance. I was time conscious and working at a pace that took the store sales goals into high consideration. I left to focus on my uni workload and help my sister who had experienced a bed ridding injury at the time.
As the Afro-Caribbean Society events officer at Brunel University, I contacted organisations to find suitable venues, equipment, performers e.g. DJs and Artists, lighting and sound specialists, security. At times I organised and lead team meetings gaining leadership skills. I practised paying attention to detail in order to ensure our events met health and safety standards. As part of a team, we used social media promotion strategies including WhatsApp groups with new students and Twitter polls to create strong relationships. I created content for social media accounts; I designed digital flyers where I learnt how to use engaging language and convey messages using graphics for the specific audience ensuring relevant information is provided. I also planned engaging and interactive events tailored to our audience's interests such as collaborating with a roller-skating disco for Halloween and valentine’s day, a black history month showcase and themed movie and games nights. We used direct marketing and market research to understand our audience's interests and profiles. I took up communicating and collaborating with other departments on the society e.g. finance and liaison to successfully plan and execute events developing strong team working skills. I worked hard towards clear ambitious but realistic deadlines and timelines to reach promotion and event goals which were results oriented. Our society numbers grew from 0 to 250 members and continued to increase after each event.
