I am a skilled Project Management Professional with experience in the Event Management, Film and Television Industries. I have achieved considerable success in General Project Management and Event Organisation, Fundraising and Stakeholder management.

I have considerable transferable skills, which I now wish to apply to training and apprenticeship opportunities to gain the chance to work within the film and theatre industry. I am seeking training and guidance to become a producer and director within film and on stage. I am a positive, self-motivated individual with strong leadership and team skills which have resulted in promotion, direct training opportunities and extensive development.
