The A List 2013: Jaclyn Sammells, BI Worldwide

Jaclyn Sammells, 27, is senior project manager at BI Worldwide

Prior to starting at BI Worldwide in May last year, Jaclyn ran high-end travel incentives, awards dinners and automotive events, including press events, at another agency.

Boss says: "Within a very short time of joining, Jaclyn was heavily involved in operating events on behalf of three demanding corporate clients. Her outstanding interpersonal skills aligned with her event management experience allowed her to gain trust and deliver a number of world-class events. Her enthusiasm, passion and will to succeed is evident in everything she does," says David Battley, director of events at BI Worldwide. 

Career high: An incentive I ran to Vietnam or a twin-centre I ran to Zambia and Mauritius. Both extremely challenging groups for different reasons, but resulting in guests and the client enjoying experiences they said they'd remember for a lifetime. I will too.

Worst event moment: Every event has its highs and lows.I like to remember the highs.

I wish I'd run: The Royal Wedding of Wills and Kate. I'd love to have been their wedding planner.

Alternative career: The fourth member of the Top Gear team or a ski instructor.

Next step: My ultimate goal is to run my own events agency.
