My name is Katie Mackenzie and I am a recent graduate obtaining a BA (Hons) in Event Management from the University of the West of Scotland. I am eager to start a career within the conference and meeting industry, as I find it a challenging, interesting and vast sector where I hope to develop my skills and knowledge.
Knowing this was the career path I would like to follow; I wrote my dissertation on sustainability within the association conference sector.
I believe I would be a fitting candidate for a position within this sector from the skills and experience I have gained. I have worked and volunteered within several events: the TED Summit, TEDx Youth, and UWS Teaching and Learning conference. I have also organised and developed networking events and small conferences taking part in all aspects of the development and execution of the events.
I consider myself to be a determined individual who can bring new ideas, and enthusiasm to your organisation. With my experience and knowledge, I believe I can hit the ground running and start actively contributing within this sector.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like a copy of my resume, or discuss my skills and experience further.
