I'm an enthusiastic, highly organised and client focussed events professional. Experienced in delivering high profile projects and operations across various sectors, for the last 10 years. I pride myself on my problem solving skills and ability to find solutions to any issues that may arise before, during or after an event. Having also previously been freelance, I can happily work autonomously or collaborate with any group size. Please see my LinkedIn recommendations and proof that I'm great to work with ☺
