James' Profile

Experience Summary

I have worked in promotions on and off for 4 years whilst I was at university. I enjoy promotions work because I love working in an environment that allows me to engage with people. This has carried over into my current career as a personal trainer where social skills and sales ability are just as important as fitness knowledge. I have also worked in VIP hospitality and silver service events where I have been responsible for teams of up to 15 staff, working events such as graduation ceremonies fresher’s week balls/parties. My promotions experience ranges vastly through leafleting, sampling, film/tv casting and cooperate liaison. I have worked with a vastly diverse set of people through my life so far, and this is something I love! I’m a people person and find I can get on with almost anyone. Outside of work my main interest is definitely sport and fitness. I have represented the county and region in football, cricket and rugby. I am a keen swimmer and have a passion for the gym. So sport and exercise play a major role in my life. As mentioned I work as a freelance personal trainer, the fitness industry is highly competitive and to succeed you need confidence drive and a high quality of service, sales ability and organisation is key!
