“The only way to do great work is to love the work you do” – and I do! I’m here to share an insight into my world; the world of events management. Expect inspiration, industry news and my adventures in and out of the office as an event manager.
A B O U T M E
I’m an event manager based in Shrewsbury, England. I’ve been working in the events industry in some capacity for the last eight years; and love every minute. With a background in theatre and a degree in English Literature and Drama I fell in to the industry with a part-time position whilst at university in London and haven’t looked back!
My work involves planning and running events on all scales, managing room and catering bookings and creating valued and memorable experiences for guests and clients. I’ll soon be turning my hand to International Event Management with a new role and couldn’t be more excited to tick another goal off my list!
I’m driven, motivated and always excited about what’s to come. I truly love the industry I’m in and so it feels less and less like ‘work’ and more about the individual events and experiences I’m creating from concept to completion.
I’m currently studying part-time with The Event Academy for a Postgraduate Diploma in Events Management accredited by the CIM; it’s great to consolidate the skills I’ve learnt so far and gain new insights in an ever-evolving industry.
My Events blog based here on my website features different aspects of the industry; think trends, inspiring people and useful advice. I’m a supporter of smashing glass ceilings and promoting the ’empowered women empower women’ thing the best I can – so have a section of my blog dedicated to the amazing women leading the way in our industry.
Away from work life – I’m wife to a very supportive husband, mum to a cheeky sausage dog named Chester, and love keeping fit, drinking gin, early mornings and Beyoncé.
