About Jayne Watkins

For 30 years I worked in various areas of the Travel Industry including retail, airline and sales. I also worked as a chalet girl in the French and Swiss Alps. I have written articles for Business Destination Magazine and have a blog entitled "Jayne Watkins Travel Diaries." My final position was in Corporate Sales working for TUI (uk). However, after redundancy in 2008 life took a different road. Having already moved to Hastings I discovered that jobs were scarce. I retrained to teach EFL for some years. I spent a lot of time listening to live music as there is a large music scene and borne out of that was MJWPromotions. I decided that some Musicians did not have the confidence or the time to promote themselves or ensure that their diaries were full of gigs. I spent a few years making contacts and making people aware of me and thus metamorphed into a Band Promoter. A Sales background has ensured that I am a skilled negotiator and happy to talk to people at all levels.. In my spare time I volunteer as a Radio Presenter on Conquest Hospital Radio, Carnival FM and Hastings Rock. I am also a member of the local Theatre and have helped with Props, costume and last year was Mrs Bradman in Blithe Spirit!
