I am an expert in communication, public relations, marketing, event planning, program management, internal and external operational liaisons, database management and reporting.
I also have excellent skills in social media, organization, administration, and monitoring.
I have years of experience in project management, organizing high level events, (film & theater festivals, stadium concerts, and human rights activities) and public relations management. Previously, I have worked as the Events Officer/Manager at the European Union Informational Center (EUIC) in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). I not only helped establish the Center, but also designed and implemented a range of creative events that engaged audiences across a wide age range with EU policies.
I also have worked as an Event & Workshop Manager for the largest independent children’s festival in East Europe, the Kids Festival Sarajevo. I managed more than 100 workshops, coordinated more than 80 employees and volunteers, and influenced the educative and creative progress of the Festival. I exceeded annual children visits by ~15% consistently for 10 years by creating a network between local communities, schools and NGO's that work with children, and following-up with existing festival partners.
I’m a PR and Management specialist with an interest in building the most effective campaigns possible. For over 15+ years, I’ve been helping projects promote and create their perfect brand and visions.
I’m well-versed in negotiations, planning and development, management, operations, and logistics coordination and scheduling.
When I’m not on the job, I love hiking, creating my art work, discovering new cultural events and indulging my love for seeing new places and learning about new cultures.
