Having enjoyed a career in marketing and PR, within the hospitality sector, I naturally progressed into event management and directly supported clients with the full end-to-end solution for all corporate functions, events and parties as well as private dining, weddings and so much more… I am energetic, and a people orientated professional with exceptional experience of working in client-led environments focused on driving awareness, widening audiences and increasing investment return through strategic marketing solutions across core digital media, event and campaign management. I have, most recently, worked on remodelling Station Stalls for larger corporate events and as a WOW addition to weddings and more personal functions – imagine being able to taste and hear Morocco, India, China, all within a few feet of each other, as well as being able to see the amazing colours of a sweeter, dessert array – this new approach has generated 120% increase in GPM and increased client bookings by over 20% at launch. Across my career I have adapted my skills and experience to provide a cross-functional approach which covers both traditional and online digital media, to exceed expectation against all client briefs and in particular I have increased sales from developing a new website and target audience, by 300% in the first quarter and by introducing a CRM system, we have optimised this return with an improved conversion from enquiry to sale. I am more than happy to discuss my marketing, event and PR experience with you, please feel free to contact me via Linkedin or my email firstname.lastname@example.org
