Focal Point Event Management

Events / Experiential, Event Management

I'm a freelance Event Director and help businesses run intelligent, creative and results-focused events. I work with businesses including TSB, Nesta, Venturefest and Good Energy through to NGOs and Local Authorities. I'm also responsible for developing several local events including Bristech and the Busienss Showcase South West.

Whatever type of event you want to run (or take part in), and whether you measure success in brand awareness, delegate learning or revenue, I'm trusted to deliver real return on investment. Check out my client feedback.

I'm always happy to chat events, so give me a call.
