Kirsty's Profile

Experience Summary

I have been involved in promotions and experiential marketing for the last six years and have participated in many large events, exhibitions and road shows and my experience covers hospitality, sales and data capture, sampling, conferences and role play as well as working as a brand ambassador, model and performer. My work as an actress also lends itself well to this type of work. I very much enjoy work that deals with the general public. My main objective is to work in an environment that involves meeting the needs of both the public and the company I work for and to work in a position that has an element of customer service and links product with consumer. I really enjoy working and being involved in large events and exhibitions, promotions, road shows and hospitality. I also like to operate in a position that has variety. My outgoing nature and professionalism fit well into this role and I always try to bring a sense of fun to what I do; whilst maintaining the high standards of the company I am assigned to represent.
