JACK OF ALL TRADES, MASTER OF SOME
Some may say that I lack direction. Other’s could argue my experience is too broad and I’ve built many hills, but not one single mountain. And to that, I say, you are 100% correct.
I’m not here to build Everest. I’m here to build the Alps.
My name is David Rafael Buri. I’ve grown up in the creative industry, but I also have a knack for business and entrepreneurship. Combining these two passions, my goal has always been simple –
To successfully expand & grow businesses while generating revenue through creative, cost-efficient and effective marketing campaigns.
I am a firm believer that this can be achieved through education & mentorship. For me, a great company provides leaders that expand, diversify and enhance mental and technical capabilities. This ensures cooperative success in achieving goals, as well as persistence in successfully reaching the company’s vision.
So, here’s a question for you – Are you my next mentor?
Traits & Strengths
I have over 12 years of experience in the entertainment industry. From music and events to broadcasting and video production, I’ve excelled in pushing creative boundaries through self-upskilling, experimentation and, of course, play.
Through my own entrepreneurship endeavours as well as my roles in corporate companies, I have learnt to lead by example, often working hand-in-hand with my team to ensure they are well taken care of while delivering high quality of work.
I am goal-oriented and adaptable. Whatever it is, I strive to deliver above expectations. Finding creative solutions and pivoting to overcome hurdles in order to achieve success is what I do best.
Both through entrepreneurship as well as through corporate roles, I have learnt to be strategic as well as tactical. I can develop the big picture while understanding how to execute it flawlessly.
