Online-tilassa Offline-tilassa
Regarded as a respected and trusted partner with a bit of an adventurous spirit, I am passionate about bringing ideas to life. I'm recognized as a creative problem solver and an inspired storyteller. I've spent more than a decade in the marketing and advertising industry, leading and managing hundreds of projects for some of the most celebrated ad agencies and direct marketing firms in the United States and Australia. I'm an accomplished manager across all platforms of integrated media, including video, events, and art installations. Consumers today are demanding more and looking deeper inside for what the brand says about itself and by extension, themselves. Advertising and marketing initiatives must not only entertain and inform, but also provide a service and ideal that the consumer opts into. Now, more than ever before, we're challenged to evolve our brands, and create memorable and transformative experiences that connect with the wants and desires of consumers. Empowering diverse constituents to work collaboratively with extended partners to pioneer innovative solutions that meet marketing challenges can be difficult and chaotic. I take great pride in fostering collaboration, identifying solutions, and navigating complex situations. Managing diverse groups with various skills, across all disciplines of the industry to create transformational results, is something I find exhilarating. It's what I do best. Specialties: Listening. Extracting. Writing. Partnering. Laughing.

Advanced Account Managment (2006)

Advertising Federation of Australia

An advertising agency's success is largely built on how effective it is at establishing and maintaining a healthy and productive relationship with its clients. Advertisers seek agencies that have highly skilled individuals that can deliver an objective viewpoint on the market and their business, and can draw on their experience and insights to help solve marketing problems. In healthy client agency relationships the agency meets and exceeds the expectations of their clients and the Account Manager has a central role in the success, longevity and profitability of the relationship. The Advanced Account Management Certification makes that next crucial career step from an 'implementer' of advertising strategies in the agency to someone who has their client's trust and the responsibility of leading the marketing communications process on behalf of the agency and client. The course focuses on the core competencies of the professional Account Manager and arms students with knowledge on how to manage expectations and add value to the agency, the client and the individual.
