Graeme began working at Team Spirit as a part-time event manager while at university. After graduating, he took the role on full-time.
Boss says: Dave Bywater, event director: "Graeme enjoyed an exceptional 2015 - delivering highly engaging events across the UK and Europe and providing stress-free conference production for clients."
Best event I've worked on: We ran a three-week, festival-themed event for one of our biggest accounts that travelled to Delhi, Cincinnati and London. The delegates created their own music and dance arrangements and performed them in front of their colleagues at the end of the day.
Most challenging moment: It occurred at the above event. We ordered t-shirts, wristbands and a variety of other props but they were held at customs in India. We had to replace everything when we got to Delhi.
Dream event: The Brit Awards: the scale and setup would be great to work on.
Alternative career: I am interested in the technical elements of events - so working behind the camera for a TV company.
Goals before 40: To build my own team at Team Spirit and expand our services.
