How long have you worked in the events industry?

Long enough to know that it is never dull, is forever evolving and attracts the most creative, passionate people.

What is the proudest moment of your career?

Finding a way to connect more deeply, tap into new ideas and be of service to my team and our industry during and post pandemic.

If you didn’t work in events – what would you be doing?

I’d be a writer.

Who inspires you professionally?

Anyone who is consistently willing to create original content.

Have you ever won an award (personal or professional)? If so – how did it make you feel?

Yes, and winning an award for work you are passionate about is a powerful, validating feeling.

Do you feel that event organisers views of event tech have changed in the past few years?

Absolutely. The expectations and needs have shifted in ways that really demand technology that serves the customer, provides insights and integrates with existing platforms.

What was the last piece of personal tech that you purchased?

Do baby monitors count. 🙂
