CWright Services - New York, Atlanta September 2007 - December 2013
Promotion, Marketing & Event Services
Promotion, Marketing & Event Services....after years of coordinating employers' events, I was asked privately to do events and I started my own little business. I also continued to work with my former employers as a paid Consultant. My fashion background helped me secure work with designers during fashion week and solicit clients as their fashion stylist. I also represented several celebrity musicians and recording artists, including up and comers. Worked with small businesses and individual clients planning upcoming promotion and marketing events and materials. Website: http://www.cwrightservices.wix.com/home
