Events & Conferencing Manager
I have worked in the hospitality industry for 22 years and have been working as part of the Keele Conference and Events team since 2005. My role is focused on providing support to Keele University Colleagues who wish to host a conference or event. I also provide support to both Keele University Colleagues and Commercial Organisers who need assistance with managing their delegate bookings, speakers, exhibition, and registration staff during their event.
Dealing with the bookings and organising the logistics for an event can be very time consuming for organisers, who often try to do this alongside full time jobs, so we are here to provide the expertise and support they need to ensure a successful event.
Favourite Things: My beautiful daughter Maddison who is just starting to walk and my husband’s food – he’s a head chef! Saying that, I don’t think you can beat a glass of wine and a Chinese takeaway – but don’t tell the hubby!
Interesting Fact: I once refused a table to Right Said Fred because we were fully booked. I’ve served breakfast to numerous celebrities, including Blue. My best career moment was when Paul Weller gave me a bottle of champagne.
