Meet the C&IT A List 2017

Juskiran began her career teaching IT at a secondary school in London before joining BCD M&E to work with one of the agency's technology clients advising on technology solutions for its events.

Boss says

Julie Fells, operations manager: "Juskiran successfully transitioned into the events world from an IT teaching career and consistently uses her technical experience and training skills to provide endless solutions to our clients' event technology requests."

Best project I've worked on

I volunteered to work on an event on International Women's Day, about inspiring speakers and making delegates aware of how to be successful as a woman in industry. It was a great team to work with.

Most challenging moment

My most challenging moment would be on the same event. The technology tools we were using were brand new and the whole project lasted three to four months.

Dream client

It would have to be on something to do with technology for a music industry client, like a festival or an awards ceremony.

Alternative career

It would still be in technology because that's my passion - maybe digital marketing.

Goals before 40

To grow into a more senior role and be given more responsibility.
