Jess is organised, loves socialising and keen not to be sat at a desk. She did work experience at Ex Events and after helping deliver a conference was offered a job.
"Jess has been a real breath of fresh air since joining Ex Events. She has the likeability factor that makes her popular with clients and has great desire to go that extra mile to ensure every event is delivered to the highest of standards. She is immensely professional and I have no doubt will have a long and successful career," says Mel Atkins, managing director.
Best project I've worked on
We did a charity gala dinner for London Air Ambulance at the Guildhall. I love charity events because I believe I can make a difference.
Most challenging moment
During an event the audiovisual went down midway through the CEO's speech. There's hardly anything you can do in that moment, so it's really challenging to take a step back.
Holding a gala dinner for a charity, for example Mind. These kinds of events give me a personal sense of achievement and remain with me.
Two weeks before I began in events I sat my nursing exams. If I wasn't doing this I would be in healthcare.
Goals before 40
I want to be at senior account manager-level managing a team of people. I would also like to have worked abroad for a few years.• For more in-depth features, as well as case studies and breaking news, sign up to C&IT Magazine's daily Newstracker here
