Hello! I'm Macarena
A journalist and a communicator living in Edinburgh.
I am a specialist in Digital Marketing and Corporate Communication who achieves to make people happy engaging with brands that they’ll love. I develop digital marketing and communication strategies which help you increase brand awareness or consumer trust. Which really means reaching the right people at the right time. Basically? It’s all about connecting with people.
After graduating in my Dual Bachelor Degree -Journalism and Audiovisual Communication- in Madrid, I completed a MSc in Corporate and Institutional Communication and worked for two years in this field. At that time, I discovered my passion for digital communication and marketing channels.
At present, I’m living in Edinburgh where I’ve just earned a Digital Marketing postgraduate diploma with Distinction. While studying, I’ve been diving into the british culture working in the hospitality industry. At the moment, looking for new opportunities and professional challenges.
Macarena successfully suggested and accomplished several communication actions: developing new strategies, managing media relations and creating digital content, among others. I would like to highlight three traits about Macarena: her strategic vision and analytical skills; her professionalism and her deep sense of responsibility and her proactive and flexible attitude when starting new projects.
