Welcome! I have worked in the events industry for a long time and over the years developed a passion for keeping people safe as we invited them to an event and waved them home at the end.
Having worked in transport planning for major events, I decided to train in crowd safety, undertaking my NVQ Level 4 Spectator Safety Management and then MSc Crowd Safety & Risk Analysis. My passion lies in combining academic research with industry experience to improve crowd safety practices. I love facilitating a safe and joyful experience for everyone at an event.
I am a member of the UK Crowd Management Association (UKCMA), International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM) and a member of the Institute of Place Management (IPM).
Considering how the events environment is one of the most stressful workplaces, I also write about my own life experience in pursuing a healthy balance in mind, body and spirit.
Oh, and I also teach Pilates!
