Sarah went full-time with Smyle in March 2013 after working with various agencies including Mango Events, Custard, Impulse and Global Transport Forum.

Boss says: Rick Stainton, managing director, comments: "Sarah is incredibly diligent, regularly going the extra mile for our clients and is also an excellent team player. These skills have enabled her to rapidly become a core member of the growing Smyle events and production team."

Best event I've worked on: Our Olympics project on behalf of one of the sponsors was the best event I've worked on. We built a temporary structure on top of the roof of Westfield, which included conference spaces, hospitality areas and interactive demos about the sponsor's product.

Most challenging moment: The Olympics project was also one of the biggest challenges in my career, because being involved in the whole thing, from structural engineering to working with the client, meant I had to learn about every aspect of the project.

Client I'd like to work with: I'd like to work for a drinks brand that sponsors sporting events or festivals.

Alternative career: I'd love to be an interior designer or a property developer. I like the idea of building something from scratch and making it your own.

Goals before 40: I want to build on Smyle's logistics team and make it bigger. There are plenty more countries I want to see in the world as well.
