Olivia began her events career as an account executive at an automotive experiential agency in 2008, before joining The Finishing Touch in 2010, which was acquired by Ex Events. She was promoted to account manager in June 2011.

Boss says "Olivia has grown existing key accounts and has jumped at the opportunity to work with new clients to grow their accounts through her dedication, excellent negotiation and organisational skills and attention to detail," says director David Taylor.

Career high Working on the Jaguar Legendary Performance Tour around the US in 2010, showcasing the iconic performance of the 2010 XFR and XKR.

Worst event moment Running a Christmas party on the night of the student riots last year at Banqueting House. Our event was positioned directly behind the line of riot police and rioters, and I had
to negotiate with the police to get each member of our six-piece band up Whitehall, not to mention the 60% dropout of guests.

I wish I’d run… A launch party for ‘Tonight We Tanqueray’ for Diageo in New Delhi – it was slick and classic from start to finish. 

Alternative career I’d probably be in PR.

My next step Develop my existing skills and become a senior account manager.
