Communications Specialist
Jeddah; Saudi Arabia.
August 2010 - June 2012

 

Medialogy Group is a Public Relations firm in Jeddah with sister companies in the advertising and production fields. As a Communications Specialist, I set strategies for various brands on how to convey their messages to the target audience in Saudi Arabia across different communication channels.

 Most prominently, I assisted big brands, such as Mikyajy, Steak House, Piatto, Frico and Majid Society on strategically benefiting from their social networks, and other brands on launching their social media activities based on well-thought out strategies to realize their PR objectives. The main aim from PR through Social Media is not to accumulate likes and follows, but to ascertain an image in the minds of a genuine audience through online communications… by creating and maintaining engaging relevant conversations around the brands.

English Lecturer
Dammam; Saudi Arabia.
March 2008 - June 2009

Teaching Pre-Intermediary English with modern methods that I devised and applied; my classes always had the highest grades’ rates, and highest students’ demands for enrollment. My teaching method involves activities pertaining to students’ young ages and their interests, making the process of learning a fun and beneficial interaction rather than a heavy chore. I’m always innovating in lessons’ delivery by including various presentation aids such as audio (social conversations, recorded interviews, etc.), video (movie clips, commercials, converted powerpoint slides, etc), and interactive exercises such as games and roleplay. I also encourage my students to widen their knowledge to other related areas of study by engaging in internet researches, social reports, and recreational projects.

Account Executive
Khobar; Saudi Arabia
February  2007 - September 2008

In the beginning of my marketing career, I handled a lot of responsibilities and tasks which helped in shaping me and my future to set me for a bigger role.

I got much experience developing campaigns according to clients' objectives and goals after I met with them and helped bring both our visions together. After I developed the campaigns, I worked on implementing, managing and optimizing them in line with the set goals. Throughout campaigns, I would provide regular reports on their status, strategy and performance, both internally to management and to clients. I'd also keep making  recommendations along the way whenever there was needs for update or a change in strategy and tactics.

Along with campaign management, I arranged for effective distribution of marketing materials and performed day-to-day liaison with Management, Creative, Production, Media, and vendors (printing house, etc. where applicable) to assure that all tasks concur with campaign objectives. I also managed the production of marketing materials, including product slogans, leaflets, flyers, brochures; sales aids and other promotional literature. That involved copy writing and proofreading in English and Arabic, and liaising with designers and printers. To make sure that campaigns were developed according to clients' preferences and needs, I assumed ongoing project-related communication and presentations, and ensured effective account management by regular communication with clients.
