SOME of THE PROJECTS
at a glance skills and experience
I started my career in sales and have developed a strong focus on commercial aspects from this, I have had the values to listen, add-value and deliver on objectives and client satisfaction instilled into me, it is these values that have allowed sales targets to be consistently achieved and exceeded, with accounts, new business and retention.
Marketing, Design and Analytics are my natural skillsets and I have various portfolios and references to demonstrate, these are areas I enjoy on a daily basis and I believe I have something to offer to a team situation across a number of sectors. ( having achieved within areas of training and education, business services, tourism, lifestyle and property)
Digital works extend to all manner of individual projects, ranging from CRM and business development through to servers, data and design. I am no engineer or tech expert, but I know enough and ideally would be working with tech teams.
Project Management is probably the most straightforward career step to take right now, however, my experience suits mid-level managerial roles in areas of web architecture, business development, sales management. I have held budgetary responsibilities, am a strong communicator and can combine these with presentation and reporting skills.
There isn't much I haven't done, from events through to server management and waitressing through to menu development. I can provide references from 2000 to present day and am always interested in developing skills or training. I am not the most patient of people and like to get a job done, I prefer working to premium and luxury standards and to deadlines. I am a strategic thinker, a problem solver and great with generating ideas, dependable under pressure and generally a 'can do attitude'.
I've worked really hard trying to get a business off the ground in almost impossible situations, it has taken too much of my time and with huge workloads, I am ideally looking for a salaried position to contribute my skills and knowledge and work along-side other professional people.

I have put together this website as a platform for my CV. I am currently actively seeking a new position and interested to hear from anyone with commercial opportunities.
I have got qualifications in most of my areas of specialism to include business, CPD courses, have studied a BAHon degree and also gained teaching and catering qualifications as well as data and food sciences.
If your not sure, contact me, I am happy to consider short-term or long-term arrangements, although my preference would be to find permanent employment, ideally within the Gift, House, Home, Foods and Lifestyle areas.
I have a number of personal interests, I am fairly good to have about the place, make excellent millionaires shortbread and very good coffee. I am quite a 'hands on' type of person, my downside is.... I get grumpy when subjected to prolonged periods with no sleep, sugar or coffee.
