What I do

With my years of event management experience I have worked on a wide range of formats, styles and objectives. See below for more information.

MOTIVATING THE TEAM
Motivating the team
  • Team building – forming, norming and storming! I develop your objectives into a team building day to give you the results you need to get everyone performing.
     

  • Motivational programmes – if you need a plan with more longevity I can co-ordinate a full motivational programme, comprising various elements to keep up the momentum depending on your particular needs.
     

  • Corporate hospitality – working with trusted providers we can put on a day to remember. Not just an off the shelf package but all the added extras to make it a truly memorable and rewarding experience.

COMMUNICATING
Communicating your message

  • Meetings and conferences –from small intimate meetings to large full-production conferences and everything in between. I provide advice and guidance to make your conference the right vehicle for your audience and your message.

  • Senior strategy meetings –ensuring the right level of attention to detail and finishing touches for senior management, CEOs and up to board members.

  • Exhibitions –planning and organising your company's exhibition or your ensuring your brand presence is targeted at an industry show.

Something more special​

  • Private dinners – sourcing your perfect venue, arranging the menus and all the guest communications leaving you to enjoy the evening.
     

  • Award dinners – music, staging, production, theming plus the ambience and trophies! I can put the va va voom into your showcase night!

SOMETHING MORE SPECIAL

A lot goes on behind the scenes to ensure your event goes swimmingly and calmly – just think of the swan….
Well I am the one doing the paddling and you are the one gliding along!

MARKETING YOUR EVENT
  • Working with your brand to share your message, raise awareness and deliver your event.
     

  • Campaigns – teasing the event to your targeted audience via your social media channels and email newsletters.
     

  • Collateral – ensuring your event brand and message makes it into the right hands – those of the delegate. Registration pages, name badges, banners, conference packs, signage. 
     

  • Post event – don’t stop just because the microphone turns off. What did everyone think? How did they feel? What will they do with what they’ve learnt? A few key questions can get to the heart of the matter to enable you to look at your return on investment, what to review for next time and what decisions need to be made.

SORTING THE LOGISTICS
Sorting the logistics
  • Communications – from reaching out to potential delegates in advance of the event to picking up contact with them after they have confirmed their attendance I will be their first point of contact.
     

  • Venue liaison – from sourcing your perfect venue, arranging contracts and site visits to sorting the menus, drawing up floor and table plans. You only need to start to think about the venue when you arrive.
     

  • Supplier liaison – working with a network of trusted suppliers to source what your event needs. I act as the interface with them, ie, the venue, production, catering, staffing.

PROJECT MANAGMENT
  • Money matters – I provide full spend forecasting, budget management, profit and loss. I also manage income streams to make sure they fulfil their commitment.
     

  • Risk management – I am IOSH qualified so I can write a robust risk assessment and method statement specifically for your event. I also sign off your event prior to the doors opening. Such an important part of your event which is sometimes overlooked, but not by me.
     

  • Contract clauses – ongoing monitoring of critical dates and cancellation clauses, down to the little clauses which say what we can and can’t do at a venue or with a supplier. I make sure you are compliant and stay on the supplier's good side!
     

  • Making it happen – am a stickler for detail and work tirelessly to ensure elements don’t get missed in the planning.
