About me


A 24 year old event professional, whom after four years at university and 4 months travelling the world, is excited to return back to the UK and work full time in the events industry. Alongside my first class honours degree in Event Management, I also have gained experience in the industry by obtaining two placements with leading events agency and working freelance throughout and after my course.
