Work history

Currently

Event Manager

Digital Catapult

Apr 2016
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • Digital Catapult curates a programme of over 300 events per year, exploring opportunities in the emerging tech space. Working with startups, SMEs and larger organisations, I work with tech leads, industry experts and community managers to produce a portfolio of events, focused around virtual and augmented reality, AI and machine learning, and blockchain within the Creative industries. I organise conferences, workshops, meet ups, tech demos, hack days, and business briefings, in which I source speakers and audiences, manage the online event listings, arrange catering and AV logistics, and manage each event on the day. A large majority of events I manage are outputs from a project, and I am confident in dealing with multiple stakeholders and managing expectations.

2016

Front of House Coordinator

Digital Catapult

Sep 2015 - Apr 2016
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • As Front of House Coordinator, I was seen as the go-to person for the daily runnings of the innovation centre. The main responsibilities of the role were meeting and greeting guests and guiding them through the sign-in process (with over 1000 visitors to the centre each month - not including event attendees). I also managed the 10 meeting rooms within the centre and assisted with coordinating complex bookings with executive assistants. Along with the meeting rooms, I managed booking hot desks for over 200 contributor companies on a day to day basis, and assisted with the events in the centre when needed.

2015

Receptionist

Bottomline Technologies

Apr 2014 - Sep 2015
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • I managed the 5 meeting room and office operations within the office of 70 staff. Without an office manager, I was responsible for the daily running of the office and admin processes. I managed all of our consultant’s off site bookings and travel as well as managing the Front of House relations. I began my event planning careers, planning various company events - from the annual christmas party, to charity running events and staff socials. I was responsible for raising cap-ex requests & purchase orders and liaising with clients through out the consultant booking process.
