Carly is Account Director for Story Events and heads up our sales team. She’s a lean, mean negotiating machine and loves getting a great deal for her clients as well as designing and pitching for large  scale events. With a South African softness, she tends to get the best out of everyone she works with.

Best Event

My best event to date was a Summer Ball in Oxford for over 1600 students. With headlining music from Scouting for Girls, fireworks, food stalls, a funfair, silent disco and a survivors photo at 5am…. this ball had everything you could ever want and more.

Top Tip

The best events come from understanding the company/client’s needs, ethos and expectations. It is only then that the creative solutions will follow. Give 100% to every client no matter how big or small!

Proudest Event Moment

Every year we run an Awards Dinner for the world’s largest funding platform. It is a privilege to be a part of an evening that celebrates incredible people that have managed to raise money for all sorts of unbelievable causes. 

Favourite thing to do outside of work

There is absolutely nothing I love more then to spend a lazy Sunday with my husband and our gorgeous little son! 

You can do anything. Set your sights high and go for it.
