I proudly manage the Sponsorship and Exhibition sales team at Brightstar, after launching it in 2005. We spearhead our new and exciting partner relationships with companies such as IDC New Zealand, NZ Tech and Freeman Media to create some of NZ's biggest and most important business and tech events, such as the New Zealand CIO Summit. the Downstream Energy Summit, FutureGov and the NZ Cyber Security event. I love launching new major events which become market leaders, such as the new e-world expo, and giving our clients the best possible experience. I'm interested in sustainabilty and more sustainable business, and drive an electric vehicle. I moved to NZ in 2002 with my family from London, where I worked for major commercial events companies, eventually progressing to successfully developing and managing a new events department for the Financial Times. At weekends you can find me spending time with my family on the beautiful Hibiscus Coast north of Auckland, and we love to travel the world.
I hold a BA and a post graduate degree from the University of Liverpool in the UK.
