What gets you in to work with a spring in your step?
My team and the desire to deliver successful events.
Most memorable event?
The most challenging and memorable time was during the ash cloud in 2010 as it involved getting people and equipment to and from their events with no planes! Amazingly, all the meetings went ahead as planned.
When I’m not contending with ash clouds, airline delays, misplaced equipment and corrupt customs officials, I love the outdoor life and I’m passionate about horse riding and walking with my dogs.
