Fun and Fabulous
Adorable and Loyal
Chilled and Spacey
If you can envisage a child’s toy… the clown that you can’t knock down… then that’s me!
Like a lot of people I have experienced many of life’s ups and downs; from divorce, to near bankruptcy, to re-possession, to both mental and physical abuse, to loss of a partner, to caring for my elderly mother, but also to happiness beyond the wildest of dreams – a whole lot of experiences which has now culminated into me as I am - for now! But it hasn’t all been bad... far from it… I have three absolutely amazing daughters, three fantastic sons-in-law, six grandsons, two granddaughters, a mother and father both of whom I absolutely adore and am lucky to have at my age, and a Lhasa Apso dog who is my best friend!
On the professional front, I have spent over 25 years within the Live Events industry in various guises, including; freelance Prompter, established business owner, Event Producer, Managing Director of a global plc subsidiary company and within all of these roles I have been lucky enough to travel the globe and meet and work with some incredible people.
Throughout my life and underlying my professional world (and also evident within it – I hope) has always been a real desire to help people, which in turn has lead to me working with various charities and also to studying Counselling and Psychotherapy resulting in qualification.
Sorted Global has been created out of all of this life experience, together with Leo’s – please do come and join us on our journey – we promise you will love it!
There are points in life when you stop and think about what you have done, where you have been, who you have met and who you don’t see any longer and why you don’t see them. You think about all the jobs you have done, all the parties you may have been to, holidays, days out, days in, bad times, hard times, good times, amazing times, times of self-doubt and times when nothing can stop you.
Over the past, 40 years or so (not saying how much more) I have experienced all of these things like a lot of people and they have shaped me to the person I am today. I still have all of these feelings and thoughts, but they are different, and they come in varying intensity. I feel extremely lucky to have been gifted health, family and great friends, however many will not and may never have these experiences in their lives. Along with Michelle, here at Sorted Global, we will endeavour to bring fun experiences to communities, families and individuals. If we can simply bring people together, talk and share the knowledge we will have made a difference.
In regards to my professional life, I have spent more than 20 years in the live event industry starting as a driver, an IT and AV technician to project manager then running a busy AV production warehouse, to account managing many high-level clients plus running many sales and technical teams. In recent years I have been working on the festival circuit and consulting to exhibition and event companies.
I'm the boss really ... Head of mindfulness and cuddles for Sorted Global .. Black coffee to go please
