Experience Summary

I have worked for several years in promotions and have now worked up to Event manager . I thoroughly enjoy the variety that being in promotions brings. This christmas I event managed the Christmas Ice castle in plymouth for six weeks leading up to christmas. We were open 7 days a week and worked long hours. I was in responsible for 12 elves and three Santa's. This invoved the day to day running, opening and closing down the castle liasing with security, cashing up, time sheets, staffing issues, banking the takings every day, lost children and angry parents who had to wait inthe queue. Out of 101 grottos up and down the country we ranked number 1. Our Mystery shop we scored 93 % only losing out to the signage which the local council were responsible for. I thrived on all the daily challenges that faced me and we all ended up a great team pulling together even though we were getting tired due to the long hours and creating the magic of christmas. I work a lot with government agencies working recently with Nicorette chewing gum and the F.A.S.T campaign for stroke awareness. I also event manage conferences for goverment agencies. I have recently qualified as a reiki therapist and In the process of becoming a yoga instructor. I am a keen sailor and scuba diver. Dance with a local amateur group currently rehearsing for 42nd street. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
