I am now responsible for managing people as well as clients. My target is now based on the team. I also have the national account managers (the level I was at before) reporting in to me. I now control the corporate PR and Marketing for LNL.

What is new at your company?

This is mainly people and structure - New LNL Structure (consumer and corporate), new national account managers, a new CEO, COO and CFO.

How was your previous role different?

I was only responsible for my own targets and clients. It was purely in sales-based role managing a portfolio accounts and growing the year on year sales.

What event industry issues are you passionate about?

The execution of events. It’s so important to me that what we propose in initial enquiry stage is what can be delivered in venue and in the right way with top service levels. I like to exceed all expectations for the client.

What could the industry do better?

New and fresh ideas and formats for industry related networking events, being more creative with food offering and packages and bringing a bit of fun back.
