These are traits that I carry over to all parts of my life, and I am eager to use these skills to plan and execute successful projects and events for your organization.

With my considerable energy and drive, I believe I could make a positive contribution to your company, and I would appreciate the opprotunity to discuss my qualifications at your earliest conveince.
