Twitter is my friend. No really. I love Twitter. I understand Twitter. I know of its potential, and its limitations; I know of its ability and its drawbacks; I understand its value, and how that is achieved and created. I switched to the Twitter way of life only a few months ago (back in October 2009); it is now an integral part of my daily life and a source of valuable conversation, information and content. It has become more of a passion, hobby, social platform (not just in terms of a medium), and something that I enjoy and love for so many different reasons.

Media, of any nature, is all about the conversation, the network, the connections, the interactions, and the content. These elements are at the core of what Twitter represents. Conversations that are ‘live‘ and current; networks that can be built around subjects that matter to you; connections with fellows who share your interests and passions; interactions that build relationships and create value; and content. Content that is real, up-to-date, precise, opinionatedspecialized, and constantly moving forward.

Twitter to me is more than just a medium, it’s a place from which I learn, share, and build relationships with some of the most intelligent, and open minded individuals in the industry.

I also understand, ‘Twitter is what you make it‘. Twitter is my friend.

Attitude. Approach. Action.

It’s hard to mention one without the other. It’s almost an integration of all three aspects that creates an overall process. I have an attitude that’s driven and proactive; I push myself at every level, and I know I have the capability to do better and progress myself. My approach is always accurate and personal. I understand the three key elements of any process that are manageorganise and communicate; and I have the capability of putting them in to practice effectively. My actions are always measured and precise. I am confident in what I do, and always make sure I know the potential reactions of any actions.

To me, it is vital to have an understanding of all these key elements in making sure every job you undertake runs smoothly, and is managed effectively from start to finish. It is as much about you, as it is about the processes and frameworks you follow.

I have great presentation and communication skills, but more importantly, I don’t mind using them. Jerry Seinfeld once joked that “The #1 fear for most people is public speaking. People fear public speaking more than death, so basically the guy giving the eulogy would rather be in the coffin.” I thrive on the energy that can be available to you in giving a presentation, and it’s always an opportunity; an opportunity to excel, prove and deliver.

It is one the most powerful situations in which to engage and connect. I enjoy the engagement it creates and seem to have developed a knack for creating and delivering presentations in an effective manner. However, it is a skill I’m constantly looking to progress and learn about; enhance my understanding and become stronger.

I have very strong foundations that were gained through my undergraduate degree in Marketing. This taught me a great deal in regards to the industry, and provided me with the initial knowledge to build upon. As well as academia, my undergraduate degree taught me how to overcome obstacles, work in a variety of systems, and be as dynamic and ambitious as possible. Some of this time was difficult and new to me, however I learnt the need to take calculated risks, and navigate difficult situations.

As for the Marketing degree itself, it’s applicable to virtually any job or organization. It taught me how to think, and look at the world from a variety of viewpoints; it has helped me understand the fundamentals of business itself, both strategically and operationally. It enabled me to broaden my knowledge and understanding of how businesses work and operate.

One of the things that has always motivated me is a fast-paced environment. I thrive in fast-paced environments. When things move too slowly, I tend to become overly relaxed and calm. I love fast paced environments because they keep my mind racing and seem to foster creativity. I enjoy and thrive on the energyintensity and pressure of an environment that constantly expects and is changing/moving forward all the time. I also seem to enjoy the impact that can have on my overall energy and motivation levels.

As much as it is a cliché, I do work best under pressure; it is where some of my best work is achieved and engineered.

My MSc in Strategic Marketing. I refer not to a MSc, but my MSc. You might assume I merely refer to the subjects, the teachings, the academia, or the certificate. I don’t. The value and lessons I learnt during my MSc were so much more than what was undertaken in the classroom or lecture theatre.

Academia has always played a relative role in educational experiences for me. Most of my lessons have always come outside of the classroom, and my MSc is one of the most fundamental aspects of this. I learnt more about value, communication, respect, interaction, teamwork, aspiration, ambition, trust, loyalty and initiative in that one year, than ever before. It taught me things I could never teach others myself, or have learnt otherwise.

It was one of the most enriching, and most valuable of experiences I’ve had the opportunity of undertaking.

My current role as an Events Manager for a bespoke events management company has enabled me to undertake a variety of key skills in moving the organization forward. I’ve had the opportunity of undertaking aspects of marketing and budgeting, right through to working with clients and executing an entire event. Of all these skills, the one I’ve most enjoyed and developed immensely is building b2b relationships.

I’ve had the opportunity to work and build lasting relationships with a variety of renowned organizations and individuals. This has had a great influence in my ability to engage with a vast range of individuals and create strong, reliable and trusted partnerships. I’ve learnt the value of b2b relationships, as well continuously learning ways in which to manage them effectively.
