Until the end of 2015, Emma had spent nine years working for Local World (a national media company and part of the Trinity Mirror Group) with responsibility for creating, managing and delivering events across the South West of England. From small beginnings, she built the events in number, size and revenue, and ultimately headed-up a department of three full time events staff.
Emma remembers from a young age wanting to have her own business and with the corporate world now adapting after the toughest recession yet, Emma decided 2016 was the optimal time to launch InEvents, a corporate event management and consultancy business.
InEvents aims to deliver exceptional quality events, working in partnership with businesses, to help them to make memories. Emma comments that “making memories has always been the best part of my job.” In her days working for Local World creating some of the biggest regional awards dinners in the UK, she says that “seeing people win those awards used to fill me with joy knowing that attending the event would be something that they would tell their grandchildren about, many years from now.”
Emma has been nominated for some awards herself. In 2014 she was awarded highly commended in the Rising Star category of the national Eventia awards; and the Bristol Post Business Awards that she ran was a finalist in the Awards Scheme of the Year category in the UK Event Awards.
Outside of work Emma is a fitness fanatic. She can often be found pounding the pavements or lifting weights in the gym. In contrast, Emma is also a dab hand at whipping up a cake or two (dairy, gluten and refined sugar free, of course).
