Nicola's Profile

Experience Summary

I have been working in the Promotional Industry for 20 years now. I have a wide variety of experience including Event Management, Sampling, Merchandising, Installation- Self Selection make-up, Auditing, Hospitality, Roadshows and Mystery shopping. I have excellent communication skills and I can communicate well and with all demographics. I am a people person and I deliver excellent customer service. Outside work I like to keep fit so I do regular Body Pump & spinning classes at the Gym and I run 10K at the weekends. I love to socialise and I love to travel with my Fiance and my daughter who was born 21.09.16. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
