Meet the C&IT A List 2017

Bethany's first events role came as an event administrator with Nissan at the car brand's activation at The O2. After a brief career change as a bespoke tailor, her passion for events led her back to the industry securing an event manager role with The Appointment Group.

Boss says

"Always positive, enthusiastic and proactive, Bethany learns from experience, takes feedback on board and is keen to expand her event knowledge and experience," says event director, Marjory Brown.

Best project I've worked on

We took 25 delegates on an ultra-luxury trip to Japan incorporating lots of sightseeing and fun dinners in and around Tokyo, staying at the iconic Park Hyatt.

Most challenging moment

Dream client

Alternative career

Goals before 40

By 30 I want to be in a director role at an agency and by 40 I want the perfect mum-work balance.
