Laura ran her own event management company and freelanced for Universal World Events, before joining the agency in 2009.
Boss says: "Laura's most recent successful event was a full-service, week-long sales conference for 1,200 people in January. Logistically this involved seven hotels, 103 additional sub meetings, an integrated CSR programme, chartered and scheduled flights, as well as delivering creative concepts and all production elements," says Denise Abbott, UK managing director, Universal World Events.
Career high: Running a CSR project in Malta with the agency, especially the children's home we renovated.
Worst event moment: Organising my wedding - I am a terrible client.
I wish I'd run: Celebrations for the Queen's Jubilee.
Alternative career: I don't think I would ever leave the events industry.
Next step: Working in a similar role but in another country.
