Experience Summary

I have enjoyed working for Jack Daniel's, Virgin, Panasonic and XBOX, amongst other brands. I enjoy working as part of a team, as well as the team leader or event manager. For the last 4 years I have been working within the games industry as a Key Account & Trade Marketing Manager. However, I have just taken voluntary redundancy and have been working for various brands such as De Longhi, EA, Philips, EE, and Kurio over the Christmas and New Year period. My role within the games publisher that I worked for required me to arrange/manage events, as well as source and book/train staff for our various consumer gaming events. I am a driven and determined person, who is keen on technology products, as well as products within the FMCG marketplace. I am happy to travel anywhere from the SG or E7 post code, covering a 35 mile radius. UPDATE : For your benefit, my most recent campaigns (October 2012 onwards) have included mystery shopping for Philip Morris and their cigarette brands, mystery shopping for Nikon, Sony/Vodafone field trainer for the Xperia handset range, promoting Kurio tablets in JLP stores, Beats by Dre in store merchandiser, De Longhi in store demonstrator, EE road show team leader, as well as representing Pedigree and assisting them on an in store data capture activity. I am currently seeking a full time field role ideally, however, if there is a role in my region which requires me to work a minimum of 3 days per week + then I would be happy to discuss and hopefully accept it. Note * I am currently managing the Northern Home Counties region for HP, however with the contract due to end soon am looking for another opportunity * View my contact details, availability, and stats.

Experience

Other Experience

I have completed my CIM Professional Diploma, and also work as an Account/Trade Marketing Manager, so am very aware of the business needs of customers, and various brands/accounts. In addition I have attained my Level 2 Food Safety and Hygiene for Catering certificate. My role within the video games publisher that I currently work for, requires me to book/arrange/train and staff events and teams for the various consumer gaming events that we run and organise.
