Being an Event Manager is in my blood! When growing up our house was always full of parties and celebrations. My mum was a great cook and party-giver, so looking after guests and coming up with inventive ideas as an Event Manager comes naturally to me.
I began my professional events career as a Compere and live presenter for charity fetes and summer Carnivals. I worked with everything from Dancing Diggers to Sheepdog demonstrations. In that time I toured all around the country and began to meet a whole host of weird and wonderful events people who earn a living by juggling chainsaws, flying falcons, or jumping through fire hoops!
Live events taught me to think on my feet and keep the show on track even when a flock of sheep has just gone through the centre of the tea marquee!
I naturally built up a great network of amazing contacts; So Wessex Events was born using my skills and knowledge to put on events Corporate Fun days Parties and Hospitality.
In my time as an Event Manager, I have staged events for many major companies and international companies, focusing mostly on the fun side of the events business: Parties, Family days, Its knockout, Opening Days, Parties, and business anniversary events.
But I am equally at home with:
- Team building days,
- Conference work
- Clients networking events.
- Business away days
- Private parties and Events
I am a creative Event Manager and enjoy what I do and I have a great team of contacts and keep up to date with the latest festival trends and bring on and support young talent and businesses and never afraid of new ideas.
Personally, I enjoy kayaking, rock climbing, adventure travel, camping, hill and mountain walking and have travelled across the UK, Europe and Canada US and New Zealand. I have skied down mountains, traveled on Dog Sleds, floated in hot air balloons, flown in gliders, and a host of other crazy stuff.
