Head of Logistics
After graduating from Durham University in 2008, I talked myself into two weeks work experience at Speakers Corner and never left! I now head up the logistics team, which ensures the smooth running and success of 600 events every year.
Every day is different and not knowing what is going to come up each day really keeps me on my toes. Whether it’s negotiating a contract with a client, hearing a new speaker, popping down to an event to make sure everything is ok or rearranging a speaker’s travel itinerary due to bad weather – there’s always something new!
I’m usually planning at least one holiday at any time. I love travelling to new places and experiencing different cultures, and even falling into a sewer in Bali and being bitten by a piranha in the Amazon hasn’t put me off! If I’m not globetrotting, I’m probably eating. Either trying new restaurants or cooking up a storm at home - with mixed success!
