Meet the C&IT A List 2017

Claudia has always wanted to work in events as she loves organising. She moved to London to study for an events diploma, completed an internship then started with Brandfuel in 2015.

Boss says

"Claudia has worked on many of our biggest international projects. Her attention to detail and clear-headed project planning has been remarkable and contributed to the success of these projects," says Geoff Iredale, group account director.

Best project I've worked on

I've loved all my projects. Every event is so different and there's so much variation. Seeing an event come to life makes it worth it.

Most challenging moment

Being on site - because of the long hours and it takes a lot of energy.

Dream client

For a sports gear company, such as Nike.

Alternative career

I don't think there's an alternative for me because I've always really wanted to work in events.

Goals before 40

To broaden my knowledge and move up to producer level.
