Personal Overview: Having had a broad, rewarding and challenging 20 years in and around the world of events, I returned to education to study my Masters in International Event Management at Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) in 2009. I have spent the last 8+ years embedding myself in the academic realm of the Sheffield Business School (SBS) here at SHU becoming Course Leader in 2015.
This has been the fruition of a diverse and successful career in campaign/marketing/brand and 'pure' Event Management, which has included strategic, creative, stakeholder, communications and PR roles and responsibilities. I have a wealth of experience gained in different sectors, from a self-employed entrepreneur, via an internationally renowned events organisation, brand-licensing company, a national communications agency and onto a complex public sector organisation. I'm still actively involved in the Deershed festival alongside by SBS day roles and currently working on my Doctorate relating to consumers, values, marketing and CSR.
As course leader I am available to chat throughout the year, please feel free to email me email@example.com where I will get back to you ASAP.
