Hello, I’m Poonam,
Although I have an Indian heritage, I was born and raised in West London and my mum was born in Kenya so I have a very multi-cultural background – though please don’t ask me to speak any foreign languages… I am limited to counting from 1 to 10 (in French, Spanish and Hindi) and Hakuna Matata (thank you Mum and Timon & Pumbaa).
I have worked as an EA for many (many) years in a corporate environment so moving over to the events industry has been a very different experience. I can finally put my hobby of going to see speakers and stand-up comedy to practical use!
As I support the MD, Nick, I get to work across the various teams in the company though my focus is on speaker engagement by bringing in new speakers, sending out colleagues to see speakers and working on our In Conversation With series. I also coordinate anything not speaker related – office management, team events and HR.
Away from the desk you’ll find me, coffee in hand, constantly organising something: the family, our madhouse, or our next gathering with friends.
