Hakeem Stevens

 I am a highly motivated and experienced Marketing; Event Management and Social Media/PR exec with almost 20 years’ experience leading high profile award winning campaigns with global brands. A specialist in music and entertainment, I enjoy working in fast-paced, creative environments and have demonstrated the ability to effectively manage budgets to achieve maximum commercial impact. In the mid 90’s I was the first person to use Street Teams in the UK successfully pioneering this Guerilla Marketing technique with several high profile clients and projects over the years.

My career experience includes setting up/running a department, managing budgets, hiring staff plus extensive event management experience, curating & creating engaging content and Web 2.0 expertise. I am keen to apply the skills I have gained across the full marketing mix, including digital/social media, B2C and B2B, to an innovative organisation seeking to engage more effectively with their target audiences. As an adaptable, results focused team player, I am confident that I can add value by bringing innovative ideas and experience to a new team and also possess excellent communication; leadership & management skills.

Lavz

Hailing from Luton just north of London, Lavz is a standout creative force in a scene currently populated by a wave of similar artists. She carefully blends Hip-hop, R&B, soul and jazz, to create a unique and attention-grabbing sound. Her lyrics speak of truth in a relatable tone from a favoured & flawed person. She will be sharing her music journey so far, and how Wired has helped in the process.
