Cara has a real passion for all things creative. When she’s not seeking sunshine or feeding her sweet tooth, she is looking out for that latest venue opening or sun terrace to enjoy…
Oh so many! I am a massive rugby fan and when I got the chance to meet Richie Macaw for a New Zealand Sports brand, I think not only was it the best event but the highlight of my career! The event was held at Spencer House and they had a dinner followed by some surprise speeches from brand ambassadors. The buzz that the whole evening brought to the team and the client was unforgettable and seeing all their shocked yet smiling faces really made all the hard work put into that evening, worth it.
Organisation is key! I find a daily to do list helps to keep you in check and your brain focused
Proudest Event Moment
I used to work at a global company in Germany who had many teams from across the world celebrating the commonwealth. Tasked with creating an event to bring everyone together, I got in touch with the local council, hired out some grounds in a park and put up a small marquee. I went about sourcing everything I could to make each country/team feel like they had a sense of their home whilst being in a country that had brought us altogether. For example, the Canadian team had pancakes with maple syrup and bacon, the UK team had fish and chips and I put together a variety of different whiskeys for the Scottish and Irish team. It was really well received by everyone, so much so that the local paper got wind and came and took some pictures and helped get the company into the news!
Favourite thing to do outside of work
Go to a music festival or a rugby game. Finding new restaurants and trying to eat my way through the whole menu and spending time finding new places in the globe to travel to.
