Meet the C&IT A List 2017

Nicola started in events with Banks Sadler working in the agency's venue finding team before relocating to the capital with CWT Meetings & Events. A move back up north to join NYS Corporate followed before taking on a full-time events role with XSEM.

Boss says

"From day one Nicola has shown a phenomenal commitment to our clients, their projects and this company," says Dan Bardgett, managing director.

Best project I've worked on

We delivered a forum for 600 of Molton Coors' sales managers at St George's Park in September. It was the first big event we managed for the brand since winning the business and the feedback from the delegates was brilliant.

Most challenging moment

Every year we organise the ticketing for 300 corporate delegates at the Grand National. The constant changes to the guest list and the ambition to keep making the experience better is a real challenge.

Dream client

My dream would be to do more football-related events. Working with the national team would be awesome.

Alternative career

Countryside cafe owner.

Goals before 40

To own a house and to travel to South America.
