I was approached by The Next Billion (TNB) to do my internship (a requirement of the Masters program I am enrolled in). Since working for TNB i have been put in charge of one of their initiatives: Access2. This initiative demanded that I build an extensive network both within the Entrepreneur and Innovation community within Oslo. I was in charge of contacting and meeting with a number of influential individuals and spearheaded the Marketing and Promotions of this initiative. My time with TNB has bushed me to build upon my exploitive and innovation skills as I am also tasked with searching out and contacting amazing individuals and start up firms from around the world to join in our Globally Spotted initiative. This role has evolved my networking skills and fine tuned my communications across all channels, be it email, calls or face to face meetings.
I was asked to join the TurApp team as an intern after showing much interest in what the company was involved in and wanting to help see their vision come to light in Oslo. My main role during this internship has been to contribute to the content of the App by going on hikes and mapping trails and taking imagery. My other job was to develop and update information across all social media channels. After my internship was concluded, I was asked to come on as an Ambassador. This involves contributing content and continuing to promote the company.
I have worked in the hospitality industry since 2004, in Restaurants, Hotels, Bars, Clubs, private events and functions. Many of these bars I have been there from the beginning deciding on the concept, layout and functionality of the establishments. During this period I have been in many job roles, but the majority of my time has been spent as a General Manager (first in charge), having this position for some of the best restaurants in Sydney. I have learnt a range of skills, from dealing with all levels of customers, their issues and needs, and been involved in the hiring and firing process as well as management of up to 30 staff. I have always received great admiration from all my employers.
