Meet the C&IT A List 2017

Chantel knew she wanted to see the world and be in a creative environment. She saw an advert for an intern at Jack Morton which asked to provide a memorable experience and applied.

Boss says

"When asked to put her life on hold for three months and fly to Rio within the week for our Olympic work with Samsung, she absolutely jumped at the opportunity and relished every moment from the experience," says Pamela Rutter, SVP, director of logistics.

Best project I've worked on

Last year at the Rio Olympic Games. It was an unforgettable experience and so rewarding to see people leave with a smile on their faces.

Most challenging moment

A large fashion event for Wella in Barcelona. It was challenging to make sure the team were in the right place and to keep up to date with changing timings.

Dream client

I love sport and I found the Paralympics at Rio inspiring, so I'd like to do something like the London Marathon. Charity events are really rewarding.

Alternative career

I'd like to write novels that are turned into screenplays.

Goals before 40

I owe a lot of my opportunities to my workplace mentors. I would love to develop leadership skills so I can lead a team in the same way that my managers have.
