A self-confessed perfectionist who loves a challenge. With over 20 years experience in sales, finance and management and more recently marketing and social media I have a real can do attitude with a hands on approach.
Fuelled by decent coffee in the day and a good G&T by night doesn't go amiss.
I've worked at RefTech since 2010, initially just as a software tester but recently my role has diversified, now including documentation, training and support. I work with every department and have a broad knowledge of the company and the lifecycle of an event.
Before joining RefTech and the events industry, I studied music at the University of Edinburgh and this is still one of my main hobbies. I am a singer, pianist, songwriter and guitarist. I regularly play at open mic nights around the area, performing a selection of my favourite songs. I also co-host a weekly New Country radio show with my husband Dean (a developer at RefTech) and we're enjoying helping to raise the profile of UK country music.
I have a passion for food and drink, in particular sampling the local cuisine of the different countries I visit on my travels.
My favourite drink is wine (specifically prosecco) and I enjoy learning about the many different varieties.
I have been with RefTech for over 10 years; I have 2 roles, Mailing fulfilment and PA to Simon, Chief Ideas Officer, to whom I have been married for 12 years. We have 2 daughters and 3 cats that are called Mork, Mindy and Nanu.
I enjoy travelling (I call these holidays, but many of you know Simon doesn't do holidays as he never stops working) I like photography, sewing, music, comedy and binge watching NetFlix! My biggest obsession is playing Pokemon Go! (Yes, people still play Pokemon Go!).
There is always a great atmosphere at RefTech and everyone has a laugh, especially at one of Simon's jokes (unless you have heard it for the 5th time that day).
I enjoy most food and alcohol, I dislike gin, dark chocolate and grapefruit.
I have been working in the travel and events industry for more than 25 years and have operated events across the globe.
In my earlier career I used to plan travel arrangements for the music industry amongst others, and followed that with a period of operating tours to sports events such as World Championships, Commonwealth Games and Olympics. More recently I have been planning events for the business world and Government clients, and worked on the recent Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London.
Away from work I enjoy travelling, musical theatre, DIY and watching athletics, having been to 4 Olympic Games (Sydney, Athens, Beijing and London).
After working in the theme park industry since I left school back in 1990, I joined RefTech in April 2019 where I have become part of the operations team.
In my spare time I like to visit cities, castles, stately homes and theme parks. Also when the weather is nice, I like to do a bit of gardening, although I did try to grow some tomatoes once which didn't turn out well.
I love a good cup of tea or a bottle of 7up free, however if you see me out on the town it will most likely be a Vodka, soda and blackcurrant.
I have worked at RefTech since 2014 and in the events industry for the same amount of time. I work as part of the finance team now, but previously, before maternity leave, I worked as part of the projects team. I used to work in a supermarket as an administrative assistant, but decided I needed a change.
I have a beautiful little girl called Evelyn, who was born in June 2016, she is my world.
I love all the normal things that a young woman/mum enjoys doing, including shopping, listening to music, going on holiday and great days out with my family.
I studied photography at Plymouth College of Art and Design. I've been working in the event industry since leaving college in 1986, and I've been working at RefTech since 2001.
Within the industry I've been an AV technician, event producer, creator of slides/speaker support material, website designer and graphic designer.
My hobbies include photography, watching films and walks in the countryside. I've also visited what some people may consider to be an excessive number of castles.
My favourite drink is coffee.
I have worked as a web/software developer since 1999 and joined RefTech in early 2015 which was my first experience of the events industry.
My hobbies are mainly technology and gadget related but I also like to cook and dabble with DIY.
My favourite drink is Coffee.
Jess joined RefTech when she was 12 weeks old back in 2012. Now a fully-fledged member of the team Jess keeps you in check with regular walks outside, she likes to promote a healthy work balance. When not barking for treats she enjoys lying on the board room table listening to what's going on and sleeping on the bottom of the tea trolley.
Her favourite drink is water, her favourite treats are Schmackos and in her spare time she socialises with other dogs like her.
