What kind of events do you work on?
Conferences; meetings, product launches, trade shows, healthcare events, congresses and incentives.
What's been the highlight of your career so far?
Being given the chance to travel to Melbourne for a medical congress.
What's the most important lesson you've learned?
It's to ensure that no matter what happens, keep calm and don't panic as there is always a solution.
Do agencies do enough to develop young talent?
Agencies are developing young talent rapidly. I've met amazing people who are doing work placements from university and they all have a great understanding of the industry.
What needs to change in the events industry?
For sustainability to be at the forefront of every decision. Not only would this benefit the world in a huge way by looking at how agencies can carbon offset our need for travel or look at alternatives, it would also utilise the use of technology in all sectors.
What would be your dream event to work on?
I've often dreamed of designing an event in outer space with a full tour of the Solar System and the Milky Way, a bit like a space safari.
The entertainment would be speeches from top astrologists and pioneers of space travel, with holograms of massive artists all around the ship playing whatever space related song you'd like. I'd have Pink Floyd play The Great Gig in the Sky as we stopped at Jupiter.
What job would you be doing if not in events?
A professional drummer!
