Experience Summary

I am currently working for Samsung as a Sales and Marketing Executive for the South East visiting a minimum of 6 stores per day, focusing on training all staff members, either in a group or one to one to improve their knowledge of the product and improve their customer service. I check stores’ sales data on number of units sold, identifying opportunities within the stores to maximise sales by negotiating adhoc space with store managers. I am also responsible for the visual merchandising of the product in store to help customer to have easy access I have built a great working relationship with a number of stores, which has help to increase sales and put me at the top of my team’s leader board. I have been invited by regional managers to new store openings and have secured key areas within the store to promote our range which has been a great success for me. I have great networking skills and have worked closely with other manufacturers to set up a mini road show which was taken around stores to promote the whole range. I’m strong, vibrant and highly motivated with an approachable personality, and have a great passion for working within a customer focused environment. I am very dedicated within my roles, taking on new challenges within my day to day job. I work well under pressure and have a proven track record of working well within a team environment and on my own initiative. I have also been working Freelance as an Events/Site Manager for the past 7 years , looking after venues such as the Milton Keynes Bowl and roadshows such as Strongbow, Smirnoff Ice .
