Where did you come from? Tell us a bit about your background.
I’ve come from a retail back ground working on the ecommerce side of the business, helping to build the company’s online profile. I did this for 8 years before deciding it was time to try something new, which led to spending an absolutely amazing few months in South Africa helping to teach kids how to play football (another passion of mine).
What perception do you have of the Events Industry so far?
From everything I can tell about the Events and Exhibitions industry…this is the place to be! It’s a vibrant, fast-paced environment filled with the most dynamic people and the most innovative ideas going. I have attended some fashion exhibitions in the past, but never in my wildest dreams did I realise the extent of the industry until I began working in it. I’ve been able to attend a number of industry events and awards shows (including the EN Indy awards taking place this week) which has provided a great opportunity to network and learn more about the sector.
So far, the best speakers I’ve heard are Chris Hughes of Brand Events and Andrew Morris of the Event Academy. Their experience in the industry speaks for itself; however; I found them incredibly insightful and funny. They were more than happy to take the time to talk with me and share some great stories and experiences of the industry which I found extremely valuable.
Finally, what’s the plan for your role here at tfconnect?
My plan here at tfconnect is to maintain and build on the relationships the company has. tfconnect is lucky to have a great name in the industry, and we are steadily moving towards cementing ourselves as the leading talent and consultancy firm in the global Events Industry.
I love the psychology behind recruitment, and consultancy is about really listening to what people want so you can provide the best service to all parties. It’s about working in close and trusted partnership to understand the nuances that create intangible value. I want to build my network and provide a positive service to both clients and candidates that makes them all feel worthwhile.
