It's the diversity. There aren't many industries you could work in where you really get to understand so many different subject areas.what frustrates you?Although the industry has become more customer service oriented in recent years, there are still enough organisers within our sector that don't provide quality service levels. what's your proudest achievement?Aside from pulling off what I believe to be the largest ever sponsorship deal for a UK show, as a result of cold calling Lloyds TSB on the British International Motor Show in 2006, without doubt it has to be Single Market Events' achievements in Hong Kong. Within the space of four years, we have built from scratch what is now broadly considered to be one of the world's top four art fairs (Art HK), which makes me immensely proud.if you weren't in this industry, what would you be doing?All through my teens and university, I had my heart set on going into radio broadcasting. Fortunately the exhibition industry became the saviour of the ears of the British public!who do you admire most in the industry and why?First and foremost it's Tim Etchells [SME managing director] - who has taught me more about what to do and what not to do than anybody else. Others I admire greatly include Rob Mackenzie, Simon Kimble and Gordon Thomas who taught me how to sell.what's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?Listen to your clients.what's the funniest moment you have ever had at work? There are too many to single out - and even if I did, you really would have had to have been there at the time.13245
