Staying there for 4 and half years it proved to be valuable and enlightening experience. Not only did I get to grips with the commercial world and hitting sales targets it was a great opportunity to indulge my passion for travel taking in trips to Japan, Australia, South America, Asia and the USA.
To progress my career I took a job as Account Manager at Real Holidays. It allowed me to improve my account management skills, develop business while getting involved in all aspects of the company’s commercial activities. It was my responsibility to manage and develop the corporate side of the business and being in the heart of Islington the majority of the clients came from the arts and entertainment industries.
After 2 years I decided to look around the job market and came to HARP wallen to see if they could assist in this area. They did but not in the way I had expected. They asked me to consider working in recruitment and after much deliberation and three interviews I got the job.
After 6 great years at HW and it was time to move on and follow my dream and get into the arts and culture sector here in London. I went on to study a Masters in Culture, Policy & Management course at City University which I have now completed.
Last year I joined London Calling as Account Manager working with clients drawn from the arts and cultural sector.
In September 2011 I joined Abingdon Management & Consulting as Speaker Agent. I look after Simon Weston, Falklands hero and motivational speaker, along with speakers from sports, business and popular culture.
