Prior to joining George P Johnson last year, Emily held a number of roles in the events industry, including stints at supplier Chill Space, and agencies Crown Business Communications and GSP.

Boss says "Emily has contributed significantly to the business growth, including the composition of award submissions and her newsletter initiative – a visually stunning and technically precise piece for 6,000 external contacts," says Kevin Jackson, executive director of business development.

Career high Producing all of GPJ’s award submissions last year – we won six Golds and one Platinum Award – and winning an internal award for growth of the business.

Worst event moment Starring in a video for an internal team-building day, which involved me being filmed running up and down the street wearing lycra sportswear for an ad we produced – which was shown at the company conference.

I wish I’d run… The Nike 10k Human Race.

Alternative career Growing up, I always wanted to be a fashion designer.

My next step I have not been at GPJ long but feel I am now firmly on the ladder and there is a lot of space to grow. I’d love to head up marketing.
