Dear Mr. Conrad,
I love a challenge!
Whether leading the marketing and promotional initiatives for the Canadian arm of one of the world’s largest management consulting firms, spearheading the corporate development efforts of a $25 million fundraising campaign to fight polio, or coordinating high-profile executive luncheons and promotional events with the “who’s who” of Canadian business, I approach each challenge with the same “get it done” attitude.
It is exactly this determination-combined with exceptional skills in marketing, promotions, business development, and executive relationship management-that has enabled my successes to date, and that in turn I can offer to your firm. From what I have read in the industry journals of your plans to enter new technology and telecom markets, you need someone who can step in now and create a singular market presence-and with the IT-Com Conference coming to Augusta this September, it needs to be done quickly.
In short, as my attached resume attests, here’s what I can offer you:
- Expertise in creating high corporate visibility and brand recognition-proven ability to create the
appropriate marketing vehicle or event, secure widespread media attention, and stimulate excitement
around a product or service
- A creative mind for promotional opportunities and marketing campaigns-solid track record for
conceiving and organizing high-profile executive luncheons, industry roundtables, and special events
- Exceptional market research and analysis skills-critical for appropriate market segmentation and
targeted marketing/promotional campaigns
- Strong project management and leadership capabilities-organized, focused, and able to pull teams together around a common goal
Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience to arrange a personal meeting, and I would be glad to discuss why I’m the person for the job. I already have a number of ideas that should interest you.
I thank you for your consideration and look forward to speaking with you soon.
