Experience Summary

I've been in promotions for more than 8 years now and love the flexibility that comes with having a new job to do everyday! I don't mind travelling or staying away from home and have been event managing for some time now which i really enjoy the sense of responsibility and achievement. I love engaging with the public and the satisfaction of going home at the end of the day knowing I've made a difference. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
