Meet the C&IT A List 2017

After moving to Sydney, Jaime dabbled in events and completed a six-month diploma. She then moved around between agency and corporate roles, before landing her job at cievents' London office.

Boss says: "No matter how busy Jaime is she is always smiling and enthusiastic and always finds a way to help the team, whether that's taking on a new task within the company, helping on other events or showing us something with her amazing Excel skills," says Catherine Harding, business leader.

Best project I've worked on: It's happening now. I am taking a group of 85 to Iceland and for the first time I'll be seeing something new at the same time as them.

Most challenging moment: Last year I was one of two leading on an 120 delegate, 7 day incentive to Sri Lanka. We faced many roadblocks - our trains breaking down, last minute activity changes, a band that didn’t want to play because it was too windy – but we navigated through it with a lot of quick thinking (advancing groups to re-rec activities, ad hoc guitarist) and a clear goal to maximize the delegate experience.

Dream client: A festival with celebrities and music. It's the most high-pressure event out there and I love music.

Alternative career: I think I'd be a primary school teacher. I love teaching people, especially that 'Aha' moment. It's the same moment that you get on site at events.

Goals before 40: I'd like to work for one of CI's global offices, heading up a new business.
