Experience Summary

I have had a long varied career in promotions/sales - I was self-employed some years ago and worked for many agencies, some too numerous to mention. Even though I am now in my 40's, I do not look my age, and have great fashion sense and 3 grown-up sons who all play high level football, (professional/ one played for England) that keep me young and fashionable. I keep very fit and I am a qualified fitness instructor.I have been lucky to have lived abroad, australia/Canada, and have worldy experience in people and culture etc. I have windows XP working knowledge, experienced user of Microsoft Office Products and a keen internet user. many interests, health and beauty, cooking, wines, reading and travelling. I can also communicate in basic sign language for the hard of heoaring and deaf people. I have been lucky that some of my promotional work led to me to getting permenent positions when I needed to work full time and have the security of a regular in-come when I became a single parent. Some of my achievements in the promotional work: When I lived in australia with my husband who was a professional footballer,through contacts I set up a business providing promotional support to corporate business product launches and event sponsership. clients and events included: Neighbours tv series. the England cricket team/test series, and various end of artistes tour i.e Elton John and Lionel Ritchie. I also obtained a high profile retainer contract for 1 year from Malibu, for the promotion of their products across australia - on my return to the u.k after my 3 rd child, I then began my promotional career, anything from dressing up as sonic the hedgehog, to being a hostess at the Embassy world snooker championships at the crucible in sheffied, where I had the honour of meeting all the players and worldwide press peoples, which was a huge opening for further work for embassy. I have been a hostess for many Euro football champion games and launched many new products. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
