Meet the C&IT A List 2017

Paul started his own teambuilding business at university and then set up online venue finding business, wefindvenues.com, which was later partly acquired by AOK Events.

Boss says

"Since AOK Events invested in We Find Venues and Paul joined AOK, we have seen a tremendous increase in the number of quality, inbound venue find enquiries that having a significant digital presence brings. Paul is part of a management team responsible for delivering a 65% increase in venue finding revenues this year. Charismatic and a natural leader, he has a bright future," says Alex Hewitt, CEO.

Best project I've worked on

In venue finding we do more multi-day residentials, however last year a global beauty firm held a three-day conference in London. It was for a prestigious client and public facing, which presents numerous fun challenges.

Most challenging moment

We started in a market where online venue finding was not established. Getting venues on board is as hard as chasing clients.

Dream client

A five-day residential client.

Alternative career

I have a degree in economics so a career in The City.

Goals before 40

I want to continue growing my team and prioritising the development of our website technology.
