Meet the C&IT A List 2017

Kate completed an event management degree at Leeds Beckett University. She started on festivals, then working with venues and now she works for Fisher.

Boss says

"Kate is highly professional and motivated, working beyond her years in an extremely fast-paced and demanding environment. Kate's commercial acumen means she was the obvious candidate to take on added responsibilities around our boosted sales department," says Emma Barrow, general manager for venues business.

Best project I've ever worked on

The closing party of Team USA at the 2012 Olympics. We organised two parties with 2,000 people attending each one.

Most challenging moment

My current role, because everyday is so different and I never know what I'm faced with. It can be strategic or developing commercial areas.

Dream client

I would love to work on the Superbowl half-time show because there's a great buzz and atmosphere around the event.

Alternative career

Working for MI5 as an undercover spy. I've been told that I have an excellent poker face.

Goals before 40

I'd like to be a head of department either within a top London agency or in-house for a consumer brand.
