Donna worked for the Hilton Group as a conference and banqueting operations manager, and has been at Venues Event Management since 2005.

Boss says: "Donna has had an incredible year. She took on a new team and one of the biggest events that she has ever project managed, alongside several other event management projects," says Alisdair Ross, head of project and events at Venues Event Management. "She is a great asset to us."

Career high: Being able to run a dinner at the Burj Al Arab in Dubai.

Worst event moment: Having less than 10 hours sleep at a five-day event in Geneva.

I wish I'd run: I would love to have been involved in the 2012 Olympics.

Alternative career: I have only ever wanted to do events.

Next step: To develop new, up-and-coming project managers in the company and eventually be head of projects and events.
