Sharan's Profile

Experience Summary

I am an energetic and confident person, and I love socialising and taking on a challenge; when I put my mind to something I commit myself 100%. I think this quality really helps in promotional work! Whilst being a student I worked in various promotional fields including face-to-face charity fundraising, in store food sampling and leafleting. I have acquired an expanse of skills that always help me fulfil my brief, successfully complete campaigns and hopefully surpass expectations!
