About me
Hello I'm May. I'm a marketing specialist with a background in creative event production, project management and sponsorship. I cut my teeth working as an Account Executive at M&C Saatchi Sport & Entertainment on a range of accounts including O2, Sainsbury's and Reebok. I have spent the last 5 years heading up the activation team at Sipsmith and have lead a series of brand activation projects on their behalf including immersive dining projects in partnership with Gingerline; a pop up Gin Shop on Piccadilly and a fully programmed Gin Palace build at Wilderness, Port Eliot and Big Feastival music festivals. I have been fully responsible for all aspects including design, build, budget and end to end project management. In September 2020, Sipsmith announced an exclusive Gin partnership with The Championships, Wimbledon, for which I was a key team member identifying, negotiating and delivering the deal.
Projects
  • Sipsmith Gin Palace
    Sipsmith Gin PalaceInspired by the beautiful 18th century Gin Palace's of old, the Sipsmith Gin Palace was designed to be the ultimate destination for festival goers at Wilderness, Port Eliot, Big Feastival and Festival No.6. A full service bar was complimented by a designated masterclass area for people to learn a little more about the brand with interactive cocktail making masterclasses, jazz nights hosted by Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in the evenings and for the very lucky few, a VIP invitation to join the Sipsm
