Justine worked at CI Events in Australia before relocating to the UK and joining the London office in 2010.
Boss says: "Justine has worked with Hays for a few years and has helped to grow the account and cement CI Events as a preferred partner for Hays Recruitment. Her knowledge of the Australian market aided her in delivering a hugely successful global event with consistently good feedback," says James Hampton, business manager at CI Events.
Career high: Organising a summer party and awards for 1,400 people for Flight Centre - everything came together. The feedback was incredible.
Worst event moment: I organised a gala dinner for 200 for a pharma company in Beijing - 24 hours before, the government closed down parts of the city to rehearse a parade, meaning it would have taken six hours to get to the venue. I had 24 hours to find a new one.
I wish I'd run: Coachella Music Festival.
Alternative career: I've only ever wanted to do events.
Next step: We've recently opened a New York office. I'd love to work there.
