I am a hardworking and very goal oriented individual with an eagerness to learn new skills. I have a friendly and approachable persona, which is beneficial when liaising internationally and building and maintaining strong working relationships with clients, sponsors and speakers from across the globe. I am able to manage my time wisely and prioritise or delegate the workload efficiently, in order to ensure the successful planning of each event and also successfully ensure that my team meet their deadlines and targets whilst staying within the allocated budget for each event. I believe I have the right set of skills to make me a valuable asset to your organisation and an integral part of the team. As an event manager, quality of service is something I pride myself on within my own work and is something I would also like to bring to your organisation.
