Sophie is an enthusiastic and motivated Events Executive with more than 5 years’ experience in event and project management. Sophie’s journey into the conference and events industry began with Bioscientifica in early 2012 when she started a Fixed Term role within their Client Services Team, which then later lead onto gaining a Full Time position in the Events Team as an Events Assistant in 2013. Since then, Sophie has had the opportunity to develop her knowledge and skills through a variety of roles within the organisation. This has included roles such as the Delegate and Registration Coordinator, Events Coordinator, Accommodation Manager and then eventually progressing into her now role as Events Executive where she is now learning to be an Events Manager. Needless to say that Sophie has continually worked on her professional development within the event management industry and is highly motived to continue further. Sophie is very ambitious and has a drive to succeed in whatever she sets her mind to.
Sophie is also very travelled and has had an opportunity to visit many areas of the world. This has contributed to the skills she has learned along the way so far and has also continually developed her understanding of other countries and other cultures. Sophie thoroughly enjoys travelling onsite for events and finds it a constant reminder of why she loves her job and why she works so hard. Seeing an event delivered successfully, even with a few minor last minute changes, is always very satisfying.
Having the opportunity to work with a multitude of conference centres and onsite teams across the world also adds to keeping each day very varied and exciting. This continually contributes to developing an understanding on how other professional event and conference organisations work within the industry and is a daily chance to learn from each other and to strive in always working towards excellence.
Outside of work, Sophie does also enjoy spending time doing sports such as yoga, pilates and dancing and also exploring the outdoors. An overall very positive person with a lot of drive to live as well as possible.
