I have spent many years as an African & Caribbean artist, touring internationally. I had the opportunity to teach in various circumstances, with a range of age and abilities. This provided me with an in depth knowledge of Black Arts, however it also provided me with self-management skills in the areas of communication, co-ordination, planning, budget control and marketing.
My experience in project management/teaching continued to evolve with youth organisations, firstly in Leeds and then secondly in Bristol. Programmes were designed and packaged to satisfy the needs of the young people using the arts as the carrot to entice them to achieve through the building of soft skills around confidence and self esteem.
The various roles required specific liaison and planning effectively for teacher training projects which were linked to the national curriculum. I created a resource of materials and ideas for schools, colleges and companies.
T o facilitate the management of my position in Bristol I utilised Microsoft Access which enabled me to sort and send mail via city, name or involvement. Microsoft Excel offered cash flow and budget systems, which allowed the delivery of up to date financial position of the company. Word was used for general correspondence and at times along with Publisher was used for the production of reports and presentations with graphical summaries of the project activity statistics.
Self-employment offered hands on experience as a multi-skilled worker which gave me the opportunity to implement the system: assess, prioritise and act to gain maximum productivity from time allocated.
I have held a full driving license since 1988, this increased my flexibility and availability. I am familiar with flexible working hours that have rewarding results. I consider myself a diligent worker and endeavour to do my best in whatever venture I take part in. I am aware that by taking advantage of all prospective chances for professional development will aid me to succeed in achieving the goals of the organisation.
