Why Me?

Ashley Glover
I hope  you are staying warm as we roll into the new year of 2011.  Hopefully this year is bringing increased morale and numerous opportunities.

I am looking for the next step in my career and the perfect place to challenge myself while acting as a valuable asset to the team. My comprehensive experience in public relations/event management, together with my devotion and pursuit of perfection, will contribute to the further growth of the team I am a part of, from the events perspective. I believe the most essential qualification for this industry is the ability to plan and coordinate public events, while maintaining a capacity for effective guidance and the talent to motivate staff for teamwork. I am competent in handling multiple facets of event planning such as: research for different venues, budget management, contract negotiation, events` promotion, and outcome reporting. I will characterize myself as a problem solver, excellent team player, hard-working, energetic, and able to relate to people.

I can be depended on to roll up my sleeves when the going gets rough. I bring to the table exceptional organizational, time management and problem solving skills and a proven capacity for meeting company objectives and demands. Coupled with a flair for creativity and ability to critically evaluate situations, I feel confident that I have what it takes to hit the ground running and strengthen any organization.

Much of my experience comes from the agency side. I adapted writing styles to client tastes. I achieved high level of group and outside collaboration on client-based tasks. I created and pitched product proposals to clients for approval and feedback.  And, as part of the team, I created marketing materials that the client could professionally use and reproduce. I understand the need to add value through marketing and create an image that essentially relays into a return on investment and increased brand awareness.  I have developed event based PR campaigns and managed large scale corporate events – from planning through logistics and execution – in both New York City, USA and London, England.

Through these practices, it has been articulated that I am an excellent self starter and team player with a can-do attitude.  I am detail and solution oriented, to see that a program is flawlessly executed.  To that end, I work well under pressure and find that I am a good problem solver.  One of my biggest strengths is my impeccable follow up skills as I stay on top of an asset until completion.  My determination to create and deliver extraordinary results is what ignites my passion and has helped me succeed.

I bring innovation and experience, positive energy, and dedication to the table; and have the communication tools under my belt to succeed.  I am ready for this challenge and would be grateful to meet with you in person. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss with you my experiences and the specific needs of your company. Thank you kindly for your consideration.

UNIVERSITY PORTFOLIO

This is just a sample of two projects that I was heavily involved with at the University of Central Florida.

The Greek Book was a promotion tool designed for and distributed to the 10,000 incoming first year students to promote Greek Life/presence on campus.

The American Melanoma Foundation PR Campaign was designed as part of a degree-capstone class to incorperate all aspects of a prospective campaign. After being completed within the class, the campaign was entered in the Knight Images Awards where it took 2nd Place.
