After moving to London in 2004, Kirsty fell into events and discovered her passion. After delivering projects for several charities and international corporates, she moved returned to Leeds in 2016 to join First Event.
"No one could deny that Kirsty is a rising star in our industry. Her passion, drive and attention to detail make her a client favourite," says Dawn Mitchell, operations director.
Best project I've worked on
Last year we delivered an incentive in Florence and Tuscany. We took the delegates on a vintage car rally and ended at a lovely winery. It was absolutely beautiful, like being on a Hollywood movie set.
Most challenging moment
Our branded supplies for a launch event got stuck in customs a day before the event began, and we had 24 hours to find an alternative from local suppliers.
I would love to work at The Oscars. No one would open the wrong envelope on my watch!
To be part of a professional choir that toured the world.
