Meet the C&IT A List 2017

After coming second in a country-wide marketing competition run by L'Oreal, the hair brand awarded Megan a role in its product division to work on the L'Oreal Colour Trophy. Having got a taste for events, she moved agency-side with Top Banana in 2013.

Boss says

"Megan has grown massively across all areas of her role, from creative pitch writing, leading meetings with CEOs, to delivering memorable events both in the UK and overseas," says Richard Bridge, creative director and joint owner.

Best project I've worked on

Coming from a fashion background, the event we delivered for a luxury fashion house in Copenhagen in 2014 was brilliant. We had projection mapping and amazing dinner venues. It taught me the level of detail needed.

Most challenging moment

We had an outdoor festival for a drinks brand but we had to find a new location within the venue at the last minute. It turned out brilliantly.

Dream client

I would love to work for a music festival. It would definitely add another string to my bow.

Alternative career

A radio presenter.

Goals before 40

To keep climbing the ladder while seeing the world.
