Tristan went on a work placement at university selling exhibition space and worked in exhibitions for the next eight years. Then he moved to the agency side when he came to Corporate Events and has been there two years.

Boss says "Tristan has overhauled the marketing department at Corporate Events and made significant changes to our marketing strategy. Corporate Events’ social media footprint has grown exponentially and CE are regulars in Eventopedia’s top 20 agencies on social media," says Andy Ashley, managing director.

Best project I’ve worked on I was part of a UBM Team that moved the IFSEC from Birmingham to London after two years of planning and battling competitive launches. The sense of achievement after a successful first show at ExCeL London was immense.

Most challenging moment I would say the events industry is the most accountable and challenging industry there is. The challenges happen in real time and finding solutions in the heat of an event makes it unique.

Dream client An international car launch similar to the Jaguar at the Burj Khalifa. Alternative career Farming.

Goals before 40 To leave a legacy. I look up to people in the industry who are innovative – if I could even come close to some of their achievements I’ll be happy.
