Meet the C&IT A List 2017

Bess fell into events after university temping at a stagand hen-do company. After delivering association events and commercial conferencing, she wanted to step up to a client account role and joined Banks Sadler in 2015.

Boss says

"Bess is a pleasure to work with and is a consummate professional," says operations director Karen Rice. "She is always supporting her team and delivering the highest standards for our clients."

Best project I've worked on

The most exciting event I've worked on was a 3,000 delegate incentive in Hawaii. The site was a challenge but we had a great programme and it was great to see how impactful Hawaii was for our guests.

Most challenging moment

We had recently won some business but the client suddenly brought the event forward to three weeks time and then added an extra three events and 400 delegates. We had to pool resources very quickly.

Dream client

An event for a small, but very high-end client to deliver an old-school, exclusive, money-can't-buy incentive.

Alternative career

Maybe in the arts producing musical theatre.

Goals before 40

I would love to lead business operations for the company; opening new country offices, business resource planning and financial development.
