My main focus is as the director of my own company, designing and retailing a range of Fair Trade women\'s belts. I currently also work part time as a pr,marketing and events organizer for a successful dance company based in Guildford. My other previous experience includes time as an office manager, sales and marketing manager and children\'s party entertainer.
My skill base includes an excellent telephone manner and interpersonal skills, a high level of computer literacy, 55 wpm typing, diary management, research and budget forecasting, event organizing, public relations and marketing expertise, office admin and promotional material design amongst others.
I am a dynamic and compassionate person who loves life. I believe I am good at inspiring others. I have the confidence and people skills to approach any situation positively and I am good at formulating my ideas in a creative and eloquent way. I am easy to get on with and approachable which I believe makes me an asset to any business. I believe I have fantastic organizational, sales and management skills, which I am able to utilize in all aspects of my life.
My traveling in Central America and India has given me a new zest for life and I look forward to new and exciting adventures in the future both at home and in different parts of the world. Last year I spent 6 months in India where I had the opportunity to volunteer with 3 charities supporting the Tibetan population in exile. I was involved in teaching English to new arrivals, researching Tibetan women’s issues and helping to organize a Peace Festival. Caring for our planet and other people is very important to me and I’m really interested in helping others. For the last 5 years my friends and I have organized a charity music festival for the Tsunami Fund in memory of a dear friend who died. We have helped raise over £50,000. I have also been involved in other fundraising activities for Survival and Friends of the Earth. Travel, Health and Fitness, Yoga, Scuba Diving, educating myself and music are among my varied interests. I love finding new ways to keep fit and nourish my body and mind.
