QUALITIES & SKILLS
Excellent verbal and written communication skills. As a Creative Coordinator, tentative listening and
effective verbal communication are an important part of how I lead team meetings and customer

Organizing, directing and motivating a team is a natural quality I possess as a leader. This skillset allows
me to adequately articulate ideas and oversee the production of creative projects.

and passion to develop creative marketing campaigns in print and electronic media.
