************* The Short Self-Pitch (SSP) *********************

***SSP follows*** thanks in advance

Greetings!

You can immediately stop your search for an Event Management Assistant because you have just found your perfect match!

Our industry certainly has its challenges. From poachers to poor pacing from previous years, every aspect of organizing a successful event in these hard economic times takes a team of unique individuals bringing new ideas to the table – within me you have found just that person. I am an extremely reliable Event Manager ready to assist you in the growth and productivity of your business. Highly skilled in the coordination, management and execution of political, tradeshow and corporate events, I am proficient in contracting and negotiating, client services, handling and maintaining vendor relationships, coordinating and securing inventory and creatively executing ideas that reach wide, varying audiences. My qualifications include a bachelor's degree, more than three years industry experience and exceptional organizational, written and verbal communication skills.

What my resume does not reveal is my ability to lead while working as a team player, motivating those around me. You will discover that I am consistent, detail-oriented, and an extremely hard-working associate; one who will serve as a model to other staff members and as wonderful face to your company, demonstrating high standards of professionalism and poise.

If you will contact me at shyannerobinson@gmail.com, I would be honored to personally send you my resume so that we are able to discuss how we intend to restructure success this industry. Please note that although I am located in Atlanta, GA am willing to relocate.

Best regards,

Shyanne D. Robinson
