I set up bespoke events for clients: panels, workshops, meet ups, and large scale conferences across Europe, Asia and the US.
Clients have included Thomson Reuters, Hachette Publishing, Campden Events, Mobile Ecosystem Forum and TM Forum.
I created my own event series, named Be You Talks to raise awareness of key issues affecting women and girls. Two sell-out events received wide press coverage across national UK papers and across key trade magazines.
Be You Talks Events – Our Story
Be You Talks Events was initially set up in 2013. We launched a consumer event ‘Why Size Doesn’t Matter’ a fun night addressing ways to tackle low body
‘The Body Confidence Event’ took place in London on 30 November 2016, this time gathering high profile politicians, business leaders and campaigners to address the lack of diverse imagery in advertising and in the media.
“I have to say that was one of the most professionally organised and informative events I have been to on the subject. Great panel speakers – well done. You should feel very proud and rightly so. Delighted to be involved.”
Ed Watson, Global Communications Director, N Brown and ex PR Director Debenhams (Speaker at Be You Talks Body Confidence)
Be You Talks, formerly known as Be Real Talks, launched its inaugural sell-out consumer event at the London College of Fashion in 2013. An original line up of entertainers, comedians, stylists, artists and psychologists inspired the audience to feel empowered and make positive change in their lives. The event was a cross between a theatre experience, comedy club with a funky workshop element. A one off original night of fun and thought provoking talks.
