Russell's Profile

Experience Summary

I have been involved in the promotions industry for six years now. I have worked on numerous promotions from leafleting in high streets and sampling on a road show to managing a team of people at an exhibition. During this time I have gained an intimate knowledge of the industry and have developed many skills as a result of this exposure. I am just as happy working under an EM as being one myself. I am currently studying a Architecture degree at the University of Westminster. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
