Event Staging Manager
A career in events in the UK, Middle East and Australia means I have been involved in many weird and wonderful events. My most memorable was the finale of a food festival with many celebrity chefs and live feeds to the kitchens. The smile on the client’s face as their own event unfolded in front of them was amazing. When you work in the events industry every day can be different and every event surprising. I once spent five minutes talking to Bert Newton without knowing who he was!
My insider trick is that I always use nursery rhymes to sound check microphones. It’s a great way of putting presenters at ease.
