I am an enthusiastic and determined individual with a strong sales background. The majority of my experience has been gained in a senior sales role for the largest European B2B publisher, in a very competitive market.
My background has been largely customer facing, often presenting to large groups. I have experience in negotiating at the highest level and can maintain a professional manner whilst being personable and approachable. I feel it is important to develop strong relations in order to understand what the client is trying to achieve and be in a position to offer the best possible solution for their needs.
I like to think I’m a well-rounded individual with lots of common sense gained through my professional and personal life experiences.
I am ambitious, self-motivated, optimistic and creative. I am reliable & committed with confidence and a positive attitude; hence, I am very excited about embarking on a new challenge.
