Emma Kate's Profile

Experience Summary

I am a professional actor, and I have also been working as promotional staff for six years. I really enjoy promotional work because it's flexible, which suits my lifestyle. It has given me the chance to work on many varied jobs and meet lots of great people. I have enjoyed travelling to different cities for work, and learning a lot about a variety of products and services. I am very hard-working, punctual, reliable and (partly due to the fact that I used to work for Disney) have great customer service skills. Clients often ask for me again, as I am not only good at my job, but also building relationships. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
