BRINGING METHOD TO THE MADNESS
WHAT I DO
With a critical eye and a methodical manner, I pride myself on possessing the skills and know-how to take your event from brief to execution. I have a varied catalogue of experience across the events and tourism sector, with the common focus being on experiential, adventure and sporting events. I am able to provide event management services and logistical delivery support to any type of event, even those that are a little out of the ordinary.
I firmly believe that freelancing should be straight forward for both my clients and myself. I always approach a task with a creative can-do attitude, an honest appraisal and a chameleon quality, to ensure clients, guests and project stakeholders go away happy and fulfilled.
Areas where I am able to provide support:
Event and project management
Logistical event support
Product sourcing and curation
Yield and inventory management
Supplier liaison (destination management companies and local coordinators)
Management of sales platforms ("shop front")
Provision of guest services and support
Operational and contingency planning for events in remote and inhospitable locations.
Please see the spotlight on some of my most recent projects below:
KALA & EXPLORATIONS
This role requires the full and complete management and delivery of the transport services of two festivals, Kala and Explorations, ensuring guests safely arrive from Corfu port to the festival site in Dhërmi, Albania. This includes advance planning, sourcing of local transport suppliers and ultimately onsite management of transport operations.
Logistics & Delivery Support
At a glance; I am currently working in a logistical delivery support role for the RISE Festival Team providing a range of solutions across the travel and accommodation aspects of the event. The role requires a high level of organisation to ensure planning is systematic and will benefit all event stakeholders and attendees.
CHRISTMAS AT DUNHAM MASSEY
National Trust Event Manager
Working in conjunction with the National Trust and Raymond Gubbay to deliver and manage the Christmas at Dunham Massey Illuminated Light Trail has been one of my most enjoyable projects to date. This was a role focused on the delivery of the illuminated trail, event contingency planning and the preservation of the house, gardens and park whilst still providing a spectacular and safe light show for all guests.
ROYAL NAVY WINTER SPORTS CHAMPIONSHIPS
At a glance; I have been involved in the Royal Navy Winter Sports Championships for 8 years and managed it for the last two. It is an annual sporting event for around 1000 serving and retired Naval and Marine personnel, event sponsors as well as some of the Royal Navy’s highest-ranking officers. The role is all encompassing and my focus must be across all areas of the event from operational planning and implementation, to delivery, on-site management and follow up.
Client Services & Operations
At a glance; My time with Goyo Travel was multifaceted. I looked after total client management and care; from point of enquiry, creative planning of bespoke adventure/experiential trips, sales and invoicing. I also took a lead in liaising with destination management companies to ensure operational plans were in place for events in the Altai Mountains, one of the most remote parts of the world.
