About me
I am a super organised and highly skilled Event Producer. I am driven and pro-active, with extensive experience in bringing together a variety of stakeholders to work towards a shared goal. An ability to nurture internal and external relationships as well as an excellent attention to detail. I am able to multi-task, come up with solutions quickly, and stay calm under pressure. I have 10 years experience of creating a variety of events, from small intimate dinners to conferences attracting 1000 delegates. I have reimagined physical events to be delivered virtually during lockdown. I also have 8 years of Executive Assistant experience before embarking on my events career up to CEO level. I have organised international and domestic tours for musical artists. I am able to manage, develop and motivate a team. I have worked in the Post Production, Music and Advertising Industries.
