I am a self-motivated professional who thrives on leading strategy and creating events, determined to strive for excellent delivery. Building an exciting and innovative event takes passion and dedication, something I take very seriously. My natural ability to look at the finer detail in all areas will provide results and create further success. I question each process to make sure it is efficient and all targets are met for the business and the client. Outside influences fuel my creative thinking and make sure I am one step ahead of the competition. My management expertise spans back 12 years, firstly with a small regional team and more recently a global organisation of 15 HQ staff and over 150 staff worldwide.
