How long have you worked in the events industry?
What is the proudest moment of your career?
Going it alone – learning from everything I’ve learned in my 20 years working with some incredibly inspiring people and organisations and… taking the jump to go solo.
If you didn’t work in events – what would you be doing?
On the beach – still coaching, getting others excited about the sea and the great outdoors. In fact… I do this today too.
Who inspires you professionally?
Nice people that have a genuine passion for what they do. It doesn’t matter what industry – if they care, if they’re passionate, if they inspire one other person to “give it a go” – whatever it may be – that’s pretty awesome.
Have you ever won an award (personal or professional)? If so – how did it make you feel?
Quite a few 😉 Professionally – it was awesome to share the success of our incredible team on the world stage. Personally – always humbled – I believe someone else always deserves it more.
Do you feel that event organisers views of event tech have changed in the past few years?
Depends which views you mean… a necessary evil? I think relationships and trust have developed for the better in the last few years. I also think eventtech has advanced more to such a stage that it is adding real tangible benefit to organisers rather than just a nice to have.
What was the last piece of personal tech that you purchased?
It’s not that exciting – a new keyboard for my ipad to write on the go 😉 I like to write… a lot.
