Meet the C&IT A List 2017

Chris completed a marketing degree which had several elements in events that he wanted to pursue. He was taken on by a small company which gave him varied experience in the industry. While there Chris realised he preferred a client-facing role.

Boss says

"Chris is an outstanding individual and a natural leader who is destined for great things within CWT M&E," says Paul Stoddart, managing director, M&E UK.

Best project I've worked on

An event for the Unilever haircare team in Provence, France. The event brief was to get the new team together to encourage communication. It was amazing to see the objectives reflected in the results and to be a part of it.

Most challenging moment

My wake-up alarm going off at 5am in order to commute from Bristol.

Dream client

I'm a dedicated sports fan, so possibly the Olympics or FIFA World Cup.

Alternative career

I love both sports and talking so a sports commentator is a career I would feel passionate about.

Goals before 40

I'd like to look at running an operation for a CWT office, but as long as I'm in a role where I feel passionate, that's what I want to continue doing.
