Meet the C&IT A List 2017

Clare began as a production assistant for Girls Aloud and The Eagles' live shows before joining Fisher in 2007. Five years later she progressed to production manager at MCI where she has been ever since.

Boss says

"The thing that stands out about Clare is her attitude towards work. Clare rarely has an off-day; she remains diligent, proactive and focussed in all she does or undertakes - a rare find. Clare's openness to learning is a joy, she listens carefully and works hard to understand, questioning until things are clear," says Mark Ford, head of creative communications.

Best project I've worked on

The Royal Wedding. Being part of it was brilliant, I feel very proud.

Most challenging moment

Working in production you're largely reliant on technology, sometimes the power goes out. Every event has its own challenges.

Dream client

One of the big Las Vegas shows. The level of production is incredible and there are live events every night.

Alternative career

Television and film relates to what I do now. I've already worked in music and events so this would be the next great thing to experience.

Goals before 40

To keep on broadening my experience. You learn something new or a better way to do things at every event.
