Executive Team

Chief Marketing & Events Officer

They say ‘variety is the spice of life’ and that is certainly true of my role at World Commerce & Contracting – no two days are ever the same! Life as Chief Marketing & Events Officer is fast-paced and exhilarating as we develop and grow a truly innovative and dynamic association.  

Having had a varied career within Marketing, Communications and Event Management in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors in Ireland, UK and France – including roles at The Royal Shakespeare Company, The National Trust and Translink (NI), I decided to go freelance in 2015 alongside launching my own French interiors business. My brief flirt with interiors and antiques was a fabulously fun career change but World Commerce & Contracting needed a ‘full-time me’ and I was ready to accept the challenge.  

Overseeing an events portfolio of international face to face and virtual conferences, webinars and podcasts as well as marketing, brand development and communications activity, I am certainly kept on my toes. I love the global nature of the association which allows me the opportunity to work with colleagues, members and partners from across the world and which has also taken me to some wonderful destinations for our international conferences.  

Based in Ireland, my favourite things outside of work are walking my dog on the beach, traveling, spending time in the sun at my home in the South of France and having a good rummage around an antique and vintage fair!
