CONDENSED CV FOR CATHERINE ANN WHEELER

My career began in Public Relations and Marketing, having completed various courses in PRO and Sales and Marketing through the company I was employed with Research International, I moved onto running The Wheel Shopping Centre in its early inception and ran several successful promotions. One of these was a National promotion which was televised and ran for 3 consecutive years.

I moved from the PR sector as my children were very young and that industry took me away from them at a crucial age. Sales became my focus from then on and I excelled in the industry.

Motivating and encouraging others is a passion I have and it was not surprising that Training within the companies that I worked and still work, included infield and technical / practical training to colleagues and clients.

People are my passion.

At this stage of my life I have no encumberances and am free to pursue a career which allows me to travel and interact with people in a personal way.

My studies that I am presently engaged in are done online and include my Personal Training and Exercise Science as well as Portuguese.

It has been said that I have the ability to make people feel comfortable, relaxed and able to be themselves when in my presence. A healthy and positive attitude (which includes a lot of really hearty laughing) allows me to engage in a diverse group of activities and situations with diverse people and achieve positive outcomes.
