About my experience/Tips for students:
For those of you that haven’t experienced Salon Privé, it is a Concours d’Elégance unlike any other. Unique in the UK for the way it so successfully combines the British Supercar Show and Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance. It is a relaxing, glamorous boutique full hospitality Garden Party where spectacular cars shine, the diamonds sparkle and the champagne corks pop away.
My role involved a range of events and marketing related work and extended to producing a large amount of copy for a number of platforms including website, social media and marketing materials.
