About me
My name’s Katie, I live in London and work in events. I have experience in a wide variety of different sectors of the events industry but my specialist areas are artist liaison, alternative weddings and corporate event management. I like making lists, wine, cooking soup and Rupaul’s Drag Race. I have a BA in Managing Major and Cultural Events and a HND in Events Management. I began my career working with corporate clients to create stand out events which differed from their usual office parties. I then went on to work on festival sites in a variety of different roles from bar management through to artist liaison. In order to expand my portfolio, I went on to work for a venue in Leeds which plays host to an eclectic mix of events. My biggest assets are my extremely detailed spreadsheets and my calming disposition.

    Event Manager
     - Leeds, United KingdomFull Time
    As the venue manager at Duke Studios, I took care of a 300 capacity venue and three meeting rooms. On a daily basis I dealt with a broad spectrum of clients ranging from international companies hosting a conference, to couples using the space as a wedding venue, to promoters putting on gigs and club nights in the event space. As the venue manager, I worked from client briefs organising all relevant suppliers (caterers, security, cleaners, licensing, bar suppliers, decor specialists etc.) ensuring that everything runs to plan during the event itself.
