About:

I am a highly enthusiastic and pro-active team leader with vast experience in live events and hospitality. Working various roles with Live Nation, Cancer Research UK and SJM Concerts has allowed me to expand my knowledge working under a variety of time pressures, clients, scenarios and face to face customer contact. 

I am currently employed as an Online Delivery Driver at Sainsburys, delivering shopping to the vulnerable, disabled and key workers across Nottingham throughout the Coronavirus pandemic.

Education

BA (Hons) Events Management (Sept 2017 – Sept 2020)
University Of Derby
Throughout my degree I took a keen interest in various modules including Event Production and Financial Operations which required me to develop a new event concept based on thorough screening of market, operational and financial feasibility. Strategic Management allowed me to identify and critically examine future developments within the service sector and develop appropriate management strategies and actions to facilitate change. The Event         Legislation module involved analysis of the legal frameworks that underpin events operations, health and safety requirements and risk assessments, this enabled me to assess the management processes for a specific venue for a specific event. I graduated from the University of Derby with a First Class Honours.
