Having recently graduated from Edinburgh Napier University with a BA (Hons) in Festival, Events and Hospitality Management, I am now eager to secure a position with a progressive and creative Events company in Dubai. I am an ambitious and self-motivated individual who can equally perform well on my own or as part of a team. I thrive on hard-work and cope well under pressure. Delivering a quality, on-time, flawless product is important to me and I will put in whatever time and effort is required to deliver these results. I am articulate in my verbal and written communication and having grown up in Dubai I have a full appreciation of the cultural and religious diversity within the Middle East Region. I am keen to learn, and make a difference!
