From running large scale exhibition projects in the NEC (16m x 10m double decker exhibition stands, complete with hospitality staff), to 25 roadshow events in the UK in 45 days, to pop-up exhibitions in South Africa, to Government conferences - when it comes to event management there is not much that I have not done. Event management is one of those things that is such an adrenalin rush when it is completed and a real project managers delight in the run up to it.
My formal education and training was in the world of corporate and marketing strategy - I was a clever cloggs and came out with BA(Hons):First. So I am always thrilled when my strategic work is called for never more so than when I worked for the DfEE on the creation of a strategy document to secure £1.5m worth of funding for an Information, Advice and Guidance Initiative in Doncaster.
The delivery of complex digital projects has always been in my locker of skills. This was particularly evident in my last full time gig, working with some of the worlds leading brands including Amazon, Premier Inn, British Gas and CBRE. Winning the award for the best app at the IOIC Awards in 2017 was a particular high.
