Research and took part in the organisation of promotional areas: contact clients, organising meetings…This was a very challenging experience for me as the company was less than a year old, therefore in full expansion. Good communication between members of the team was essential.

Event Manager

DNA PR

Organising and hosting parties in London Clubs. Part of my job was to coordinate various details prior to the evening whilst making sure on the night that everything went as planned. I was also in charge of helping to develop event driven communication for brands (Ducati, Criminal clothing) through the organisation of reception, galas and parties in partnership with the brands.

Skills developed:

- Excellent communication through working with many different sorts of people and organising a variety of events: birthdays, Christmas parties, business functions, etc.

- A stringent organisation was essential to make sure the events took place in a smooth manner. Working under pressure with a very limited space for error taught me how to deal with stress in an efficient manner and how to find solutions when facing problems or unforeseen events.
