14 years ago I started producing conferences in the niche pharmaceutical industry for Vision in Business. Since then I have a developed expertise in conference production and event management in the energy, technology and utility sectors with key experience cross-sector in African markets e.g. Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Ethiopia, producing UK-African projects in London.
I can develop events from concept, creating feasibility reports for new event ideas. I am especially good at Stakeholder engagement – getting buy-in from potential partners, sponsors and supporters.
I can handle any event format: Client hospitality, Brand Activation or conferences and seminars.
With over 10 years’ experience in live, content-led events, I deliver relevant and inspirational content for both established and start-up businesses seeking to engage and inform their audiences. My experience ranges across sectors including Digital: Beauty, Fashion, Wealth and FMCG. I’ve worked and contracted for companies including Haymarket, UBM, Decoded Fashion and The Telegraph.
I work across across the full range of content delivery, from viability testing through to programme writing, speaker recruitment and marketing copywriting, as well as consulting on content and portfolio strategies.
