Best Event
Very difficult to answer this as there have been so many! If I had to pick one, I think it would be organising and planning numerous events for The World Economic Forum in Davos, working alongside Google, Zurich Insurance, and Phillip Morris International to name a few. Working in -28 degree weather really made this event one to remember!

Top Tip
Live in the moment. Money will always come back to you!

Proudest Event Moment
Being the face of Zurich Insurance for the World Economic Forum for 3 years running.

Favourite thing to do outside of work
Ice skating. Have dinner parties with friends, travel as much as I can because my goal is 33 countries by 33 and being near the ocean is my ultimate – either swimming or surfing.

Life’s a wave, surf it and enjoy the ride!
