TELL US WHAT YOU DO?
I am Head of Events at Walpole. I manage the yearly events calendar, working with Helen, our CEO, to create beautiful, innovative and luxurious events that offer a welcoming space for networking, but also provide thought provoking and intelligent insight from the luxury sector. to ensure that brands get the most out of their membership and fulfill their objectives for joining Walpole.

TELL US WHY YOU LOVE IT?
I am happiest meeting new people and forging strong relationships with our wonderful member venues and fantastic suppliers. I also love working with our members to showcase their brands, using our events as a platform to do this. Although events can be demanding, the feeling of relief when an event goes well makes it all worthwhile. I also work with an incredibly supportive team who are passionate about Walpole and what it stands for, which makes it a pleasure to be in the office, even at the busiest of times.
