As a skilled Events Manager I am looking to align myself with an exciting and progressive company that will appreciate my abilities and reward my achievements.
My interest in this field stemmed from the time that I was a college student. Having seen an elaborate wedding, I was motivated to do something which would make such special moments something that people would remember and cherish for the rest of their lives. I have been part of this industry since my college days and have made it my career. I have experiences of having worked 10 years planning and executing events.
