My approach to event planning is: 'No problem, leave it to me'

Hi there. Although I am new to this industry in a professional capacity, I am not lacking in experience when it comes to planning events and weddings.
The main emphasis of my event planning is in the corporate sector - planning conferences, trade shows, team building workshops or even the 'Office Christmas Party', however weddings, parties and private celebrations are also included as part of my services.
My approach to event planning: 'No problem, leave it to me' means that you can be assured that your event will be efficiently planned, run smoothly and be enjoyable and memorable for those who attend. Let me take the stress for you.

I have spent 15 happy years in a career as a professional make-up artist. The path has been varied; starting in the fast paced, cut throat field of photo-makeover studio's to the rehearsed and creative environment that is live theatre moving to the demanding and emotional industry of weddings.
Over the past 4 years I have been the Brand Manager for a professional cosmetic range. This role has been high pressured and target focused and has thrown me into a diverse mixture of situations that have needed a professional attitude, cool head and adaptable personality. I have been fortunate to be involved in organising numerous events ranging from student competitions and training workshops to customer appreciation days and coffee mornings.
My qualifications include A Level English Language, Biology and Art. Higher National Diploma in Beauty Therapy Management. Post Graduate Certificate of Education. Plus I am currently studying the IEWP certificate to become an International Event and Wedding Planner Professional.
