Media & Communication

Personal statement

Welcome to my Profile!

I am a third year BA Hons Media and Communications student specialising and aspiring to work in the Events and Exhibitions industry.

My passion for the events industry derives from the diversity within the sector, and the need to engage creative thinking when curating and executing an event. Throughout this course I have learnt key skills that include:
social media planning, strategic marketing and communication techniques.

I currently work for Aston Performing Arts Academy (APAA) as the Events Coordinator, and my main responsibility is in the organisation of the bi-monthly open mic event which gives the students within the academy a performance platform. I also liaise with external clients when they enquire and book the professional performance group EOS. I attend site visits, create booking forms and communicate clients’ needs to the internal team. Clients include, Bullring, LoveBrum and British Chambers of Commerce.

My event experience also includes:
- Radio Plus Coventry
- Bethel Lighthouse: Church in the Park
- MBCC Awards
- Big Church Day Out
- STAR Youth Talent
- Access Creative College
