After completing a maritime degree, Liz worked for The Challenge Business, organiser of the BT Global Challenge Yacht Race, and for a marketing agency. At Sportsworld, she looks after the Fairway Village at Wimbledon and British Tennis sponsor Aegon.
Boss says "Liz has been instrumental in the growth of the event services department over the past five years. She oversees all UK hospitality event operations, and manages the contract with the All England Lawn Tennis Club for the Wimbledon Championships – now reappointed for a further five-year term," says chief executive Chad Lion-Cachet.
Career high I project-managed a transatlantic yacht race from Southampton to Boston.
Worst event moment Working in Beijing during the 2008 Olympics for a high-profile sponsor and facing cultural and language barriers, which was no easy task.
I wish I’d run… The Winter Olympics in Vancouver. I’m a huge sports fan, so it would have been of personal interest and a career goal as well.
Alternative career I’ve always had the notion that one day I’ll run my own business.
My next step It would be great to experience working in-house for a leading international business at some point.
