Starbucks Manager

Working within a national hotel for a global chain, my tasks included Profit and Loss accounts, Stock Management, Marketing and People Management. In addition to this, the day-to-day running of a cafe allowed me a deeper understanding of people, sales and customer service.

About Me

I am a unique individual with equal parts creativity and analytical abilities. Having gone straight into full time work as soon as I was able, I also continued my education through the Open University. From this I was able to absorb knowledge from both environments, giving me the work experience and progression, along with several qualifications and self-motivation which afforded me the skills I have today. I flourish in learning new things and have used this to become a self-published author and other qualifications, and continue to work towards new goals and ventures.
