An experienced PRINCE 2 qualified events specialist with vast exposure of corporate, entertainment, and international environments, both in the UK and internationally. Flexibility, time management, and working in a methodical manner are some of the skills Cassandra has gained over the past 15 years working in events since graduating with a BA in International Business.
