Freelance Conference Producers
I have over 15 years’ experience in the commercial B2B events industry having founded and ran my own events business for 8 years. I have worked with NGO’s, C-Suite and Public Sector including prominent high-level engagement internationally with NHS England and Public Health England. I have extensive experience managing an event from its conception through to its delivery with my core skills lying in sponsorship development and income generation.
I have considerable experience seeking new business development opportunities, specialising in acquiring the support and commercial involvement from key industry stakeholders, developing strong partnerships that improve the impact of the event whilst creating new opportunities for future event growth.
I am highly competent in producing everything from Awards shows, Conferences, Exhibitions and Webinars with 200 events under my belt in the past 15 years. I am able to work autonomously or as part of team. I can produce or drive revenue on any size event whilst meeting the financial target of the event(s).
I deliver agenda-setting, thoroughly-researched conference programmes on a freelance basis and have recently worked for The Economist, Dubai Chamber of Commerce (for World Expo 2020), Crain Communications and The Conference Board. I have an in-depth understanding of the conference world as I have 20+ years of experience as a senior commercial programme editor working across a broad spectrum of sectors including technology, manufacturing, chemicals, telecoms, legal, energy, HR, communications and marketing. I also have experience of looking after speaking engagements for senior figures from key client accounts for global brands such as Hewlett Packard, Cisco, Oracle and Vodafone.
