About me
As a current Private Dining & Events Executive at Fortnum & Mason; my time management, self-motivation and interpersonal skills make me ideally suited for the fast- paced and often hectic duties in an events position. I feel as if I fit just right in, within the world of events. To add to my experience, I have also gained my CIM accredited Level 7 Postgraduate Diploma in Event Management in April 2017, proudly gaining a distinction. During this course I was fortunate to work alongside and pitch to EE, Nissan and PBI. Taking into consideration my current experience and knowledge gained, it’s distinct to see my attention to detail, organizational skills, and my positive attitude to keep up with all the demands. I’m a worker who doesn’t leave site until completely satisfied; having a high-rise standard allows me to produce great work and an even greater event.
