It will be advantageous if you offer event planning experience alongside managing a small team.  Our current team offers a diverse background of prior experience and knowledge.  A knowledge and genuine interest in technology and/or interior design would be highly beneficial due to our client portfolio; in particular any knowledge of video production and editing would be highly desirable.  Our extensive range of services includes strategic PR planning, Media Relations, Copy Writing, Social Media, Event Management and Video Production.
