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 have worked within the Events industry since 2013 and all of them with RefTech, I came from a banking background originally but I have also spent time in retail, but the events industry is best for its variety of clients and ever changing technology!
My passion in life other than my family is Mountain biking and the great outdoors.
My favourite drink is a good strong Espresso Coffee or a pint of Stout.
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 planned events for the business world and Government clients, and worked on the 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).
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 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.
