Kirsten's Profile

Experience Summary

I have worked in the promo industry for over three years, both part time while at uni and full time for a year whilst i was saving to travel. I have worked on many different campaigns, from demonstrating for PS3 to sampling for Cadbury and Garnier. Have worked for many big brands on products from food and cosmetics to gaming. As I have this experience I am aware of the nature of the industry and how to communicate with people from very different socio-demographic backgrounds, and people form different target audiences. I know how to conduct myself well in the field as I know i am ambassador for the brand i am promoting on that day. I am bubbly and would like to work in the promotions industry whilst i am travelling as it is an industry i am familiar with. I have finished a management masters in uni and so am very organised. My experience, personality and confidence make me perfect for the promo industry! View my contact details, availability, and stats.
