Looking after sports fans, so the only stress on game day is the score.

Promotional, marketing and commercial engagement in the events industry.

My background is a mix of stage, radio, and sport – in front and behind and scenes – which means I have a good understanding on a wide number of operational needs, and can bridge the gap between creatives and organisers.


Confident Public Speaker
