    About me

    Event and Production Manager experienced in large scale event management and show-calling.

    Resume includes high profile Charity Events, Events in prime Central London locations (and the challenges which come with such locations), Dinners and Festivals.

    Comprehensive knowledge of H&S and the production of EMSP's for large scale events. Regulary attend Licensing Authority and GLA Licensing Operational and Safety Planning Group meetings and adept at presenting EMSP's to a range of stakeholders.

    Originally trained at Guildford School of Acting in Production Management I have designed and managed several theatre spaces including the first National Theatre for Profoundly Deaf Children.

    Comprehensive skill-set and working knowledge in a variety of event and theatre disciplines. Always willing to 'muck in' to ensure an events success and I place customer service and satisfaction as one of my key aims (hence having worked as a freelancer for the same clients for over 20 years!).

    On a non-theatrical note I established and am a trustee of the UK charity Affecting Real Change (www.affectingrealchange.org)
