About me
Running an internationally renowned event across three continents to an audience up to 20,000 people worldwide. Attracting chart-topping artists, influencers and industry leaders such as Stormzy, Mo Gilligan, Reggie Yates, Chris Eubank Jr, Ms Banks, NSG, Alec Boateng, Tunji Balogun and Anthony Saleh. I have demonstrated my passion to strategically plan and deliver complex projects for clients, meeting the briefs, budgets and timescales. I am committed to the whole event package, taking time to identify the events’ needs and objectives in relation to the economic climate and emerging trends. At the core of my success to date is my ability to build excellent communication networks around events which ensure that all parties and fully aware of progress and expectations are managed effectively. I have produced a wide range of events for the likes of Virgin EMI, Puma, Ends Festival, Shoreditch House and We Are FSTVL, dealing with talent, agents, licensing and risk management to ensure the smooth and professional delivery of the event and the integrity of each brand.
