Jennifer Tam

event planner, wedding planner

My name is Jennifer Tam , I am 22 Years old and a come from a little town called Otaki- located on the lower North Island. I am a New Zealand born Chinese and can speak English and Cantonese fluently. I am new to the Event and Wedding planning industry so am willing to take up any opportunity to work with as many businesses/companies possible. I am very open minded, I will take any ideas into consideration. I have done some Event planning and promoting for photographers and companies in the past but not as much as I would have liked. I am a fun, easy going, bubbly and open minded. I can also adapt to any ideas or thoughts quickly and make it effective. I would love if you gave me the opportunity to work, represent and promote for you as it is giving me the experience and the knowledge I need to move further in this industry.
