Meet the C&IT A List 2017

After finishing her degree Amy applied for her first events job at Emap. After nine years in the industry she can't imagine doing anything else.

Boss says

"Amy is a self-motivated and disciplined person, with excellent time management and organisational skills. These skills, together with her ability to work closely and effectively with customers, make Amy an excellent project manager for complex and high-profile events," says director Rob Brazier.

Best project I've worked on

Working on Sibos, which is a huge project in several worldwide destinations. I thrive on concepts coming together.

Most challenging moment

In Singapore we needed black bamboo stems for a feature which were difficult to get. The solution I found was to paint normal bamboo with black paint and attach artificial leaves.

Dream client

I love fashion and music so any event that involved both. Maybe London Fashion Week or Glastonbury.

Alternative career

I enjoy writing and travelling so a travel writer.

Goals before 40

To continue working on national-scale events, broaden my portfolio and strive to challenge myself further.
