Event management is my passion, and I’ve organised more than 150 events of all shapes and sizes ranging from conferences for 500+ delegates to large industry awards dinners, launch events, drinks receptions, gala dinners, networking events, exhibitions, fundraising events, press conferences, seminars, charity fundraisers, and round-table business events for senior professionals.

I have a large network of specialist suppliers including speakers, MCs, production companies, venues, caterers and entertainers, which allow me to create stunning events which work for all budgets.

Whether you’re looking for an event manager to provide a full event management service managing your whole event seamlessly from start to finish, or want someone to work alongside your team managing elements of your event, I can help to ensure that your next event is remembered for all the right reasons!
