I am a digital strategist, a communication specialist and an all-round creative thinker. More than that, I am an optimistic person. I have worked my way up through two industries that could not be more contrasting; retail and social support. I started my career on the sales floor/ground staff of Clarks and climbed ranks into middle management within 8 months.
I eventually switched trajectories and began work with individuals recovering from mental health issues. Some of these individuals had restricted communication and/or learning difficulties. My work with them has helped me learn to adapt to varying needs for individuals as well as groups. This has helped me in learning the value of active listening and attention to body language and alert response as well as the impact of psychology on human behaviours.
I believe I have gained a lot of interpersonal skills and team building experience dealing with individuals with multicultural and multi-ethnic backgrounds who may also have had speech difficulties. This has helped me in devising various marketing and PR stratagem. I have conducted several training sessions for staff in both industries.
