Experience Summary

I am a confident, down to earth guy who loves to meet new people and have the ability to get on and work with different people. I have such a varied employment history in the events world and beyond. I am very dedicated and I take on responsibility of a task even when I have not been asked to. I like to get the work done and strive to achieve the best customer service possible. I bring an additional quality to any job - my attitude for excellence. This is not just giving lip service to the term excellence, but putting every part of myself into achieving it. I am a huge Tennis fan and have been playing from a very young age. I like most other sports too, films, dance, photography and generally trying out new and different things. I am a big food fan and love eating at different restaurants. I love travelling and wish to continue this to embrace all the different cultures around the world. I have completed two years in Business Studies and two years in Events management at Leeds Met University. I was a course representative and the first point of contact for our students. I wish to succeed in the events industry and hopefully one day start my own business. I am highly motivated and looking for work. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
