Andrea's Profile

Experience Summary

I'm an experienced Territory Manager, trainer and brand ambassador with a special focus on technology. I love keeping up with the latest developments and passing this on to customers in a manner they can clearly understand, ultimately guiding them to their ideal purchase. I enjoy customer interaction and staff training (including large group training), ensuring that everybody on the team is fully up to speed and conversant with the latest innovations. I have a great sales record for high end clients like Panasonic, HP, Intel, Microsoft and Samsung which often requires significant time investment in customers to ensure they purchase the product best suited to their needs. I have three years experience of tastings and food/wine sampling in M&S and hold a Level 2 Food Hygiene Certificate. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
