About me

 

There are three things I love to do; socialise, attend/organise events and travel. I am a music and film appreciator, I love to find hidden gems to eat, drink and explore. I’ve been lucky enough to see some beautiful places in the world including stints travelling around Europe, South East Asia and a couple of months working in Prague. I have lots of transferable skills, not to mention my willingness to learn and excel. I have planned client’s events using their brief, producing and managing them from start to finish. I am used to the pressures of being set targets/deadlines and meeting them. I have lots of administrative experience, working with budgets, using CRM systems, creating/analysing reports and financials. I have been told I have an excellent “tone of voice” when it comes to using social media and understand the importance of brand continuity. I am sales and performance driven, going above and beyond for my team and clients. I am naturally good at building relationships with people, I am organised and reliable.
