About me

 

I managed the Visitor Services Department at the Royal Academy of Arts and led a team of 45 Visitor Services Assistants. Whilst at the Royal Academy, I organised and managed the Visitor Services operation for many major exhibitions including Aztecs; China; From Russia; Anish Kapoor, Van Gogh; David Hockney and Manet. I am committed to providing a high standard of visitor experience to all visitors. I was also a member of the Facilities Management team. In addition, I am experienced in event management. I am accustomed to working under pressure and facing and resolving challenges. I have worked for an independently funded institution and am aware of the commercial imperative. I have initiative and a positive approach. My current role is project managing exhibitions for the Royal Photographic Society on a voluntary basis including “Bleeding London", which showed at City Hall, London and “Capturing London” which is showing at the Bank of England Museum.
