Event management is my passion, and I’ve organised 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, and entertainers,  who I work with to create stunning events 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!
