I am writing to put myself forward for a job vacancy in Administration or Event Planning. I have five years of experience in total. For the last three years, I have been working at Honda Motor Co. (Africa & Middle East Office) in Dubai, UAE as a Business Development Officer. I was directly reporting to / assisting the Senior General Manager of Network & Development in a wide range of Administrative tasks including (managing dealers’ sales executives data base, customer service, travel arrangements..etc.). When it comes to Event Planning and Delivery, I believe that this is the part I enjoyed the most in my career at Honda. I was solely responsible for planning and delivering three major events every year as part of our incentive scheme for sales executives in GCC & Middle East regions. I have dealt with so many entertainment agencies as part of the Award Ceremony day of the sales competition we conduct yearly. During these events my role didn't only include event planning and delivery, I was also an MC (Master of ceremony) as a bilingual (English & Arabic) and a Judge assessing the sales executives capabilities and rewarding good performance. My work during these events has been highly appreciated by Honda Management Team as well as Distributors from around the region. Besides these three yearly events, I also contributed in product launches and training seminars. I also assisted my department (Network & Development) in Market Analysis, Dealer Development support, Product launch, Marketing Collateral, Arabic proofreading, Sales Training support, Sales Contests Planning and Delivery as well as Incentive Development Scheme for dealers. I am very familiar with the leadership responsibilities associated with this profession as I have held this position for the last 5 years with two companies that I thoroughly enjoyed working for. I have established a great relationship with all of the members of these two companies. The reason why I had to quit my job at Honda Middle East is because I got married to a New Zealand citizen and therefore had to relocate to Auckland, New Zealand. . I am currently on a work visa under partnership category. During my tenure at Honda, I have participated in many projects that added a lot to my experience and career profile. Also, having worked in the Middle East for the last four years (mainly in UAE & Egypt) has given me a vast experience especially amidst the market fluctuations and political unrest caused by The Arab Spring. I have excellent oral and written communications skills that make it easy to keep all functions within the department running smoothly and efficiently. I have the skills needed to ensure daily administrative tasks are being performed proficiently and knowledge of what equipment, programs, etc. is needed to create a modern and well-run office. I have experience working with vendors, clients and investors along with each department in the company to coordinate and carry out multiple projects and events from beginning to end. I thrive under pressure and have the ability to work fast, while maintaining a professional, friendly mind-set.
My goal is to continue learning and developing my expertise in my future role.
I welcome an opportunity to meet and talk with you in person should any opportunity present itself.
Please contact me at 0211270741 to schedule an interview. I look forward to seeing you soon.
Thank you in advance for your kind consideration
