Experience Summary

I have been working in this industry for 17 years and have a huge amount of experience as an EM, TL, and BA. I’m a trained actor, a skill that helps me be focused and efficient, whilst also enabling me to be sprightly and outgoing when required. I am hard working, dedicated, friendly and always determined to achieve the targets I have been set. I am versatile and happy to adapt to what the situation requires. Getting people’s attention, interacting with consumers, promoting and selling products are skills in which I have many years of experience. I have worked as a direct salesman for The Times newspaper, The Economist, Hello Fresh, Gousto and Eat First the ingredients and food delivery services. Other promotional work has included sampling food and drink for M&S, Fosters Radler. Demonstrating for Samsung, Tefal Optigrill and Colgate. Event work at The Colour Run, Parallex Art Fair, Invictus Games. Hosting and waitering for Front of House. Leafleting for Specsavers, Powwownow and Haus property. Data capture for NHS Smoking Cessation, LA X and Virgin Health. View my contact details, availability, and stats.


Other Experience

Examples of my TL experience include a Sony Playstation Roadshow, where I organised the team, gave everyone a role to fulfil, looked after the keys to the locked Playstations, gave the team breaks, etc. On a Smoking Cessation for the NHS campaign I would organise my team in different areas in and around London. I set them targets to reach (getting details of people who wished to use the NHS' help to quit smoking), looked after all the iPads used for collecting details and communicating results back to head office. I also led teams of Subscription sign ups for The Times newspaper, The New York Times, The Telegraph, The Economist, Apple, Hello Fresh, Gousto, and Eat First.


Other Skills

I recently worked as a direct salesman for The Times newspaper signing people up to yearly subscriptions for the paper. This involved approaching people either at their homes or on the street. This is one of my strongest skills because you have to get their bank details there and then, not an easy task, but I achieve great results and was one of the top salesmen in the company.
