Bio

Hi - thanks for coming to read my profile.  My name is Emma and I am the Founding Partner of Warwick Events and the Vice President of Community for the UK and Ireland Chapter.  Want to know my life in a nut shell?  Well, here goes...

  • discovered the love of organising events when I was 12
  • studied Psychology at Cambrige University 
  • got into events in 1998 
  • think about events from every perspective, especially from the human behaviour aspect, constantly striving to do things better 
  • started to weave stories connecting my clients to the place of their event and the local community, Warwick Events was born
  • joined MPI in 2018 and found my tribe!
  • on the journey to becoming a certified B Corporation
  • passionate about people, places and the planet

Squeezing in time to get married, nuture my daughter through 18 years of life, gardening and painting (the art kind, not the decorating)!!!

And for those of you who'd like to know about Warwick Events:

We partner with organisations who are committed to making a positive impact on society and the world.

Our clients want their brand and brand ‘spirit’ understood. They need an event partner who can work collaboratively to achieve desired event outcomes; build personal and individualised programmes to connect with a diverse audience and work together to minimise an event’s environmental impact.

And that’s exactly what we do

But Warwick Events goes one step further: our clients’ events make a difference in the local community. We partner with small independent businesses, charities and artisan start-ups - so your event feels more farmers’ market than supermarket. Working right in the heart of England, you too can have an event that’s good for the planet, good for the community and good for the soul.
