Originally from Hertfordshire, I now live in London via Liverpool, where I studied and lived for ten years. Whilst I love living in London, I am still very fond of Liverpool - especially the people, who always welcome you with a friendly smile backed up with a quick-witted one-liner!
Having studied a degree in Sound Engineering at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, I was fortunate enough to continue into a career in the music industry at various record labels and management companies, where I was lucky to have the opportunity to work with some extremely talented and very lovely people – both in terms of artists and those who work ‘behind the scenes’. One of the things that I enjoyed most was working at gigs and festivals, which of course included making the most of the music and bars once the work was done!
After ten years in music, a change in career direction took me to event management, working across various London venues as the co-ordinator for both corporate and private events, ultimately specialising in weddings. As a huge romantic, planning many-a-couples special day has given me many happy days myself.
Having personally experienced the motivational power of a keynote speaker, I feel extremely privileged to now part of the exceptional team at Speakers Corner and the speakers who we work with.
Outside work, you can often find me in front of an Audrey Hepburn film with a nice glass of wine, practising (and I do mean practising!) calligraphy, or out for a walk with my Fiancé on Hampstead Heath.
“For beautiful eyes look for the good in others, for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk in the knowledge that you are never alone.” – Audrey Hepburn.
