LIVE AND EVENTS
Throughout my career I have been responsible for organising and producing a range of events and live shows. I am the author of two "how to" guides to organising events - one for Croner and the other for the Charities Aid Foundation. As well as organising the events, I have scripted for presenters, government ministers and keynote speakers. I have sourced and briefed guests and contributors, and managed audiences. I have undertaken risk assessments, and co-ordinated performances and entertainment, as well as briefing and managing set designers, studio production teams, and camera departments.
