In my last 10+ years as an entrepreneur in the digital marketing and events space, I have come across so many great ideas shared by trainers, online courses, offline classes, and everywhere else on the internet. I noticed that a stage before “Getting Started” is consistently missing. 

The stage that helps you put a plan together. The step that points you in the right direction. Imagine investing all your time, energy, and money into a new venture or project, and pushing forward (or as Reid Hoffman calls it, Blitzscaling) in the wrong direction. That would really suck, wouldn’t it?

At Get Out! Events, I’m responsible for providing practical solutions to meet our clients’ event goals. My multi-disciplinary consulting background gives my clients the confidence they need when working with me on their next big event!

When I’m not working on a highly customised event proposal for clients or coming up with a new event concept, I spend my time developing new event programmes and building relationships with our industry partners. Weekends are also almost exclusively reserved for family time with the kids at home.
