I have had a very interesting and varied career over my 20+ working years, most of which has been in the Brand Marketing field, but I have enjoyed doing Training and learning about the Construction & Property Development industry over the past year.
I have worked in the following industries / areas:
The Motor Industry, Management Consulting, Direct Selling, FMCG, OTC pharmaceuticals, the Import industry (albeit FMCG), Small Business Consulting, Training, Construction and Property Development.
I am quite a practical person and look at situations in terms of what will be the most effective, efficient solution to achieving the results required after evaluating the current situation carefully. At the same time I enjoy bringing some creativity into any job to create interest and excitement for everyone involved.
Please call me if you are looking for someone with my skills to add value to your business. I would love to meet up and find out more about the company to see whether our values and expectations are aligned in order to fulfill our mutual objectives.
