Skills

Coping well under pressure

before my first experience as a promo girl I didn't think I could cope well under pressure but with excellent feedback from my leader I have confidence that I can do this.

Personable 

I had been recommended various times for mentoring sessions with younger students during secondary school. I am friendly and approachable. 

I genuinely enjoy talking to people. 

Listening and Memorisation skills

I showed these skills when I had been given a lot of tasks to do on my first job as a promo girl and I was able to complete them without trouble. I had to place iPad on the tables in a limited time, greet guests, ensure I was around the tables in case guests needed help with placing bids. i had to remember to place iPad back in their cases at the end of the night. Although it was busy I ensured that I was doing the right thing.

Well spoken

I have proven good communication skills, often receiving friendly and positive response from people.
