Conference & Functions Coordinator
I believe that being organised is the key to success, in fact I get a lot of satisfaction about organizing everything in my life. That is why my position as Conference & Functions Coordinator, where I am continuously organising successful events, gives me so much joy. After working in many areas of business I fell in love with the buzz and excitement of event management and I want my guests feel the same excitement and buzz that I feel every single time.
