I like to describe myself as a facilitator of creativity, pulling together all the elements required for a creative output. I pride myself on my interpersonal and written communication skills, being a creative thinker, and my consistent drive and determination. I have successfully developed various interdisciplinary skills from research, stakeholder procurement and management, budgeting and scheduling. I am innovative, creative and ready to learn and adapt. I was recently nominated as an Inspirational Woman of Media by the Mayor’s Office and featured as part of a photographic exhibition there. I was also nominated by The Dots as one of their 100 Social Leaders with Heart for my work towards social justice & equality.Locked Pro Plan feature
Serving as a key member of the executive team I was charged with formulating and producing forums, roundtables and conferences based around public policy and social change.

As a stylist for the British fashion brand Karen Millen I was tasked with creating unique looks for our in-store clients and developing and maintaining relationships with new and existing clients to increase sales. Being aware of brand presence, I maintained the social media for the store whilst keeping up to date with current trends within the company and the fashion industry as a whole.
Working for this chain of 4 and 5* hotels in the centralised head office I managed and maintained reservations, building and maintaining strong customer relationships to drive sales. I also monitored and tracked the daily sales for the company to ensure we were on target.
Adhering to the high standards required from clients that engage with a 4* establishment as a conference organiser involved co-ordinating with clients to set up and run functions of a high caliber for up to 700 attendees. I was expected to manage logistics within tight time limits and always met client expectations throughout the event management process. As a conscientious member of the team, I also represented my department in departmental meetings.
