A History graduate who has experience in successful event management, marketing and leadership, with strong written and verbal communication skills. I am proficient with large scale management of events and am able to communicate confidently with large and small groups in a professional and engaging way. As an ambassador, I gave many tours of up to 15-35 people and spoke to many parents and prospective students. I always ensured I conveyed the messages clearly and customers understood and received all the information they wanted. I am experienced in digital marketing and capable of liaising and maintaining professional relationships with clientele. In managing and organising a Latin student night, I used social media to market the event and collaborated with many societies, students and companies, creating a base of clientele and a digital community. I have excellent organisational and time management skills. I utilised these skills through the use of digital technology, such as calendars and Google docs, separating and sharing tasks, along with calculating everything through the strategy, focus and commit technique, setting time goals. This allowed me to complete my final year of University, whilst working as an ambassador, as the manager of La Bomba (a Latin student night), president of belly dance, as well-as being a part of salsa, pole and fencing society As a history graduate, I also have an eye for detail and can carry out effective research and data analysis. I am capable of editing and proofreading. History has also taught me the power of perspective. This allows me to offer different viewpoints from many different angles and opinions, which is very beneficial for problem-solving, creative thinking and teamwork. As an avid Skillsshare user, I am consistently working on developing and gaining new skills and knowledge, currently taking courses on digital marketing, leadership, analytics and ASL.
- La BombaThis was a Reggaeton student event I organised and managed on behalf of another company. It had been running for only a year until I joined. It aimed to cater to a Latin community but also showcase this music to others. Although a student night, I pushed the event to to include a friendly, social and safe atmosphere. I have attached some of the digital marketing media below.
- Belly Dance SocietyIn the belly dance society my aim was to empower women through the dance and performance. I wanted to unite women and help build their confidence whilst paying homage to this cultural dance. I have attached images of only a few of the events I organised and supported over the space of 7 months. The events below consist of taster sessions, collaborative workshops, competitions, performances and activities.
