Chloe joined the agency in 2011, having previously worked for three years as account director at experiential agency Amplify.

Boss says: "Chloe was instrumental in bringing a step change to the way Barclays' most discerning customers enjoy hospitality at the Hay Festival," says Olivia Brannigan, group account director at RPM.

Career high: Delivering customer and stakeholder-facing event spaces for Sky Arts and Barclays at the 2012 Hay Literature Festival.

Worst event moment: I was once given the task of positioning a mini ghost train that showcased the features of a new Sony mobile handset into place outside the company's entirely glassfronted head-office atrium. Unfortunately gale force winds blew up on the day and as the installation was being craned into place, it came within inches of crashing through the glass frontage, with most of the senior team looking on! Thankfully no actual damage was done but I certainly gained a few grey hairs that day.

I wish I'd run: London Fashion Week events at Somerset House ... amazing fashion against a stunning London backdrop.

Alternative career: A zookeeper for the giraffes at London Zoo.

Next step: Progressing to group account director, and becoming a mum in October.
