Member Profile

Having 15 year's within the industry, I'm a proud #eventprofs! I have Masters degree in Events and Exhibitions Management and an IOSH practitioner. I have extensive experience of managing events including: large scale conferences for 1500+ attendees, exhibitions, gala dinners, drinks receptions, round table events, seminars, income generation events, outdoor events, festivals and barcamps to name a few. I currently manage a team of events professionals to effectively plan, execute and evaluate 60+ annual conferences and exhibitions. I have a experience of servicing a wide range of clients and positively engaging with internal and external stakeholders. 

Over the years I have developed and implementing marketing & events strategies for various organisations. Skilled in project management skills and product management skills including ability to deliver on time and within budget. Known for outstanding planning, organisational and prioritisation skills with the ability to multitask.

I am strong advocate for the next generation of #eventprofs, invited key note lecturer for Events and Exhibition degrees and master's courses, offers internships and a full member of ABPCO. 

"Sammy was a very, very high performing member of staff. She has an impressive combination of interpersonal, management and technical skills which she uses to achieve real impact. Sammy is a relationship builder and is highly effective in building rapport and generating consensus. She is also a very strong team leader and her motivating and empowering approach inspires loyalty and results in reliable delivery. Sammy is positive, self-starting, focused and very effective in managing upwards. Her style and performance is commented on very positively by senior external stakeholders and enhances organisational reputation. Sammy is a very class act and it was such a pleasure to work with her. Thank you Sammy!" - August 30th 2019
"It’s rare that you come across standout talent like Sammy. She is a dedicated professional, who will consistently go the extra mile to support her team to deliver quality events and services. She expertly builds relationships with all key stakeholders to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes. She is innovative, creative and able to problem solve under pressure to deliver results. I had the pleasure for managing Sammy whilst working for the Stroke Association and would gladly hire tomorrow. Sammy would be an asset to any organisation. Highly recommended!" - June 2nd 2021
"I have now worked with Sammy for several years. Sammy is hard working with an easy manner which is also very practical and pragmatic, bringing a common sense approach to her events and projects.
