What are you going to be doing at LIVE?

I am an Account Manager recruiting for events roles from Account Executives up to Event Directors, across the UK.

What have you done previously?

I have worked in the events industry organising a range of events from team building to incentives, conferences to large scale consumer events, graduating last year with a degree in Events Management. Prior to joining Live I spent 8 months working for a global recruitment firm and I now want to bring my passion for events to recruitment.

Favourite holiday destination?

Val D’isere in France – whether it’s climbing up the mountains in the summer or snowboarding down them in the winter, I love it!

Do you have any hidden talents?

I’m not sure you can call it a talent, but the minimum amount of times I’ve ever sneezed in a row is 3!

What’s the best piece of advice you could give to someone starting a new job?

Firstly, relax – they’ve offered you the job because they believe you are capable of the doing the role and because they like you! Secondly, don’t be afraid to ask questions. Also, take notes – particularly on how to use their systems etc. so you don’t have to ask the same question twice.

Describe yourself in five words

Ambitious. Friendly. Spontaneous. Enthusiastic. Sociable.

What is your natural habitat on a weekend?

Spending quality time with friends/family. Eating out (whether that’s a trying a new restaurant on a Friday night or chilling out in a nice café for brunch on a Sunday). Then if there’s time, I enjoy baking. 


We look forward to sampling this baking. Welcome to Live!
