About me
I’m a creative, ambitious events manager and marketer. I think great communication involves having a clear unified vision of what you want to achieve and using it to inspire others to get on board. With over 5 years first hand experience in seeing how clever day to day communication and marketing can deliver great events and help venues and businesses grow to its potential, I intend to use my writing, sales, communication and event organisation skills to make a positive impact in my work and personal relationships.
