Lisa has just been promoted to account director at W&O, where she has worked since 2008. She started working in events at Bloomberg, and also spent three years at Logistik on the M&S account.

Boss says "Lisa is a great talent, and her hard work and exceptional customer focus resulted in her promotion to account director in November. Lisa is both a great leader and an outstanding team player," says managing director Sallie Coventry.

Career high Island-hopping around Malaysia for a client incentive, and my recent promotion.

Worst event moment Being stuck at a Gatwick hotel with an incentive group en route to Barbados. Flights were grounded because of the snow – we had to cancel the trip; I had to organise a last-minute party at the hotel, and then get everyone home.

I wish I’d run… The Brits, or a similar glitzy event.

Alternative career Travelling and writing for Lonely Planet, or something in TV and film.

My next step Build the new accounts I have taken on, and be a good leader and motivate the team as the agency grows.
