After graduating from Bournemouth University in 2006, Stephanie wrote to more than 100 agencies looking for her first role in events. She got her break at CL Events & Venues before moving to Principal where she has been since 2009.

Boss says "Stephanie has always been a key employee who is committed to excellence in every area of her role. Stephanie has formed excellent relationships with her many clients," says director Anupa White.

Best project I’ve worked on In 2015, we took a software client to the Monaco Grand Prix where we delivered the best of the best. The group stayed at the Fairmont Monte Carlo, which overlooks the track so delegates got to watch the race from corporate hospitality. Monaco during the Grand Prix is electrifying.

Most challenging moment We had to organise 22 events in four days at the Cannes Lions festival for one of our media clients. With a small team we had to manage celebrity appearances and bands while dealing with different suppliers.

Dream client To organise an incentive that showcases the best of Japan. It’s such a beautiful country with so much diversity.

Alternative career Running a B&B in some exotic location.

Goals before 40 I would like to become an event director within the company.
