Extra Information

  • Auditing

    I was assistant event manager for a promotion in the UK for a well known desert. Our teams were situated outside London Subway stops, sampling the product to members of the general public. I was in charge of picking up the samples in a truck, getting them to the location, co-ordinating with the manager, and helping staff in their duties.

    I have been involved in several tradeshows and conferences. Most recently I was representing Yoostar, a home movie karaoke system at the Best Buy conference in Kansas City. We had to deliver demonstrations to Best Buy Emplyess, and fully educate them on the product before it became available in Best Buy stores. The importance of clear communication in this education as paramount.

  • Event Management

    At a public trade show, I was in charge of a stand that was sampling and delviering key messages about free trade coffee. We had to arrive a few days before, set up the stand, train local hire, and during the event I had to ensure smooth running and make reports back to our head office frequently.
