I also have experience in Sales and Retail along with a strong background in Creative Arts including positions such as Talent Agent Assistant and Performance Manager. I have a three-year BA Degree in Drama and English and a two-year Diploma in Business Management and I am thankful to have gained a lot of experience in both sectors of the work that I really enjoy. Please find all my employment and personal credits in my Résumé attached. I have acted as an event leader and brand ambassador for many different clients in Ireland and the UK and became their brands identity on and off site of activations. I generated sales by delivering the brands experience to the customer at face value. Examples of Brands are - Three Ireland, Heineken, Olay, MAC, Logic, Tranquini, Centra, Hennessy, Keoghs, Dairygold, Cadbury's. (All affiliated brands and companies listed in Résumé). I worked in New York last year as Assistant Location Manager for the New York Kids Club for 6 months and since returning home I have set up my own SME called The Performance Lounge - Pond for Performers for work in Corporate/Festival entertainment.

I am very much a peoples person. I am confident in speaking with new people every day and I thrive on facing new challenges daily. I love talking and sharing opinions and ideas with people. I am also very creative in that I like taking the initiative in a group and coming up with better ways as to how you can improve the event/product/service. I'm always determined to achieve anything, hardworking and committed to any challenging project I take on. I will always be enthusiastic with the work that I am given and guarantee a fresh innovative approach to anything that may come my way. Above all, I have full passion for the work that I do. I am a professional Actress/Model and I am a Dance Instructor for Hen, Kids, Staff Parties and Corporate Events. I work for JSD (Jane Shortall Dance Agency) in recruitment and as event coordinator. - I've 7years of experience as a BA and Event Manager for activation with 3 experiential agencies - Imagine Marketing, Modern Green and N20 Experiential UK.

Won 'Society of the Year 2012'. I ran a committee of 13 people who all had their own individual jobs to run daily and then had a sub- committee of 38 people to manage along with an ENTS team on campus. Here I managed club events weekly in venues such as Tripod, Wrights and Andrews Lane Theatre. I managed dance troupes who performed in the Bentley nightclub and Central Park club in Galway. - Sales Rep for 3 mobile with Contract People and was then promoted to the 3 mobile stores in the Dublin Area.
