After working for a small, conference-focused events company, James started at Ex Events in 2011.
Boss says: "James is a dedicated member of the team with a superb eye for detail and creativity in abundance. He played a lead role in designing and building a website showcasing Christmas parties," says David Taylor, director at Ex Events.
Career high: Working on the British University Snowsports Championships, a two-week event for just under 10,000.
Worst event moment: Re-routing an outdoor street-based team-building activity for more than 150 people through and around the Olympic Athletes Victory Parade.
I wish I'd run: The Winter X Games Europe would be great.
Alternative career: A professional snowboarder, but closer to reality I might have been on the creative side of advertising.
Next step: To progress towards a role in project management.
