Experience Summary

I have been in the promotions industry for over 10 years now and I feel my experience makes me an outstanding Event Manager, Team Leader and Brand Ambassador! I am a happy, outgoing person who enjoys meeting new people, so this is the perfect job for me! I am also hardworking and professional and strive to impress by giving 100% at all times. When I am not working, I enjoy travelling as much as I can, watching trashy American soaps and reality shows, keeping fit with yoga, circuit training and pole dancing (I've been pole dancing for about 3 years now!). I am currently teaching myself French via CDs and podcasts, I hope to be fluent by the end of 2012! View my contact details, availability, and stats.
