English is my first language, at which I am exceptionally proficient and have a natural talent for writing. I love research and surveys (including secret shopper, customer, guest - the latter being the hospitality trade - and so on, where your impressions and opinions count). Apart from communications i.t.o. writing, editing and proofing, I work with Adobe CS and can do design and layout to pre-print. I understand the concept of deadlines and meeting them. I am also creative and have a lot of my own original ideas, which I am willing to share. I am self-motivated, driven and task orientated. Additionally, I have a good eye for detail and accuracy and am a very fast typist (average of 112 w.p.m.) I recently worked for the largest diversified mining companies in the world, but have opted out of the corporate race to focus on freelancing and finding the time to enjoy the coffee and smell the roses!
On the PR front, I am a peoples' person, outgoing and do not have a problem talking to strangers. I have held various positions in this regard, the latest being PR Manager, followed by starting my own PR and Communications company, which I sold when I relocated.
Whilst having recently traded my mining bosses to be a freelancer, I still recognise that my client is THE Boss and as such, will meet deliverables to the best of my professional abilities.
So that is it - the complete package! I await your call ( am available on Skype), or e-mail and look foward to working in collaboration with you and adding value to your project, or business.
