About

As a Project & Client Manager at Modatech, I collaborate with cross-functional teams, lead and mentor a diverse team, and oversee project lifecycles for top-tier designer brands. I leverage my excellent communication skills to present creative ideas and solutions to senior stakeholders, and proactively identify and address potential risks, ensuring projects are completed on time and within budget. I have gained significant UK work experience in public relations and event management, working with prestigious fashion magazines and coordinating press events. I am passionate, ambitious, flexible, and dynamic, and I am seeking a new and challenging opportunity to achieve further professional and personal growth.
