As an Event Manager and Producer I have created, orchestrated and managed a variety of events from intimate projects to complex productions. I realise visions for the client adding a creative edge to their core brief. I’ve sourced and located a diverse range of venues for different events from small intimate museums to arena size spaces. I’ve dealt with and worked alongside many different types of contractors from the tendering process to the final delivery of the event.

I am equally comfortable researching, creating and managing a large-scale event at The Royal Albert Hall as I am at dealing with the levels of protocol and security required to put on an intimate event at the Houses of Parliament or a guest appearance from HRH Prince Charles.
