Events & Brand Manager
Having learnt a wide spectrum of skills from setting up and running my own business, I'm now looking to build on my experience and hone in on the creative side of marketing/events & brand development.
“Bringing back the humble oyster and discovering everyone’s ‘perfect’ Bloody Mary on a London double-decker bus”
I establish close-working relationships within the drinks industry, collaborating with numerous London-based brands at various events across the UK. I also manage the day-to-day running of operations, trading and company accounting, as well continually driving business development and brand awareness.
Events / Logistics: End-to-end event management from planning and negotiating pitch fees, to overseeing travel and trade logistics for events across the UK, including Henley Regatta and Secret Garden Party, as well as private hire and corporate catering.
Management: I manage daily operations, dealing with suppliers and coordinating orders, deliveries and stock levels, in addition to managing a team of 10 bar & kitchen staff.
PR/Marketing: From initially harnessing social media networks during our crowdfunding campaign to building a strong following as we grew the brand, I also write seasonal press releases, continue to establish and nurture blogger relationships as well as arrange promotional pop-ups, previously collaborating with ETM Group.
Finance & Accounts: From our initial business plan and crowdfunding budget to VAT returns and managing cash flow and payroll, I oversee all areas of accounting and have a strong knowledge of budgeting and forecasting.
