Erin joined our Wimbledon events agency straight from university with a degree in French. She loves the variety of her job as an Events Executive. Erin craves new challenges and has learned a lot from the team she works with.
Relaxation for Erin includes a boxset marathon or letting off steam at the gym. She’s tried jumping out of a plane in New Zealand but hot yoga is a bit more accessible in Richmond!
Naomi brings over 11 years’ experience in experiential events to the team. Previously Event Account Director for prestigious brand, Nike, she has produced some of their largest activations – Strike Night, Unlimited London & Phenomenal House. Naomi is just as confident in producing large-scale events as she is exclusive, intimate gatherings with a portfolio crammed with big names such as London Fashion Week, Red Bull Music Academy and electronic music duo, Disclosure.
Her busy work schedule isn’t enough to tire out Naomi. You can often find her enjoying a spin class and she loves skiing, even after four years teaching ski lessons before becoming a full-time Events Manager.
Izzie found Sleek Events online and wanted to work in a lively, vibrant place. Considering her outgoing nature, it’s no surprise to find out she was once an Extra in a Harry Potter movie! She’s worked in an orphanage in Thailand and looked after the first shoes for lots of littlies in Clarks so it’s also no surprise that she has great communication skills.
Whilst Izzie loves walking her dogs, going out with friends and doing yoga and pilates, she also enjoys getting cosy in her PJs on the sofa, watching documentaries.
Kim has an Acting degree and is also qualified in Aerial Arts, making her the perfect PA for Jennifer who, as Kim puts it, “needs someone who can swing from one thing to the next without overbalancing!” Her two favourite professional experiences to date have been working at the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics and performing in the pantomime of Peter Pan. Kim’s role at Sleek includes looking after staff welfare and organising fun things to keep the team perky, which is giving her good practice for when her baby starts toddling!
A qualified yoga teacher, Kim is hugely popular with the rest of the Sleek team, who all love a bit of stretching and balancing. Unsurprisingly, her love of chocolate has cemented her popularity.
Sumee has been working in the events industry since 2001 starting in lighting before going into production management. At Sleek Events, she makes sure the technical aspects of each event are planned, tested and executed to perfection.
When she’s not working, Sumee likes to be climbing mountain regions like Snowdonia or the sea cliffs along the UK’s varied coastline.
Sophie has a decade of experience in the industry, producing a wide range of events for brands including Southern Comfort, Three Mobile and Stella Artois. Acting as Event Consultant to King’s Cross, Sophie curated and managed exhibitions and screenings, as well as producing some of their larger outdoor events, such as festivals on Granary Square attracting over 30,000 visitors. She also recently headed the Nike Global World Cup ‘18 Summit.
Senior Project Manager Alex Jackson has over a decade of experiential know-how. Whether it’s operations and logistics or exhibition management and sponsor relations, her global clients have taken her to work on events across the UK, Europe and the USA.
Her favourite event so far has been in Cannes. Why? Well the beautiful weather and amazing atmosphere certainly had something to do with it! Alex doesn’t get a lot of free time in between work and ferrying the kids around but then she’s never been one to rest on her laurels – prior to working in events, she was a trampoline coach and a lifeguard! Her ability to create experiences that create unforgettable memories is one of the many reasons we’re pleased to have her as part of our dream team.
Claire is another talented graduate of Bournemouth University. Her experience in the hospitality and events industry includes coordinating weddings and private parties at iconic venues such as Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, motivating her to achieve the highest standards in everything she does. Her outgoing and passionate nature makes her a perfect fit as a Project Manager as part of our dream team.
Claire loves the fast-paced, dynamic environment of the industry where no two days are the same, creating memorable experiences. Our incentive travel service was a big draw for Claire as she loves to travel and experience new cultures. She also enjoys an active lifestyle, whether that is working out at the gym or taking part in charity runs in the great outdoors.
Rachael is our part-time Fixer – she can find you anything, anywhere and at anytime. Her actual job title is Events and Admin Assistant but Queen Fixer is probably more appropriate! She’s been a professional actress (try to guess where you’ve seen her) and owns a popcorn and candy floss business too. She loves that no two days are ever the same when working in events and her favourite thing about working with us is the people.
Along with her candy floss business, Rachael can also juggle (badly) but she doesn’t offer that as a party piece. When she gets a rare spot of spare time, she loves a good Agatha Christie murder mystery.
Sleek Events was lucky enough to tempt Kate away from the enjoyable life as a freelancer. Her 15 years of experience in the events industry and her love of people dynamics makes her the perfect match for our dream team in her role as Operations Director. Her specialisms include incentives, logistics and project management which is the perfect match for our clients who like to keep us busy with events across the globe!
Kate’s favourite thing is bedtime (I think all #eventprofs will say ‘aye’ to that) but that is only after she’s completed a full day of the variety club that is a career in events, a gym session and spending time with family. She’s climbed Machu Pichu on an incentive to Peru and taken a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon – her positive attitude to any challenge is what we love about Kate.
Lily grew up on a thoroughbred farm in the countryside in Victoria, South-East Australia. Her first experience of events was the races in Melbourne and she was hooked, fast-tracking her career with a diploma and two years of events agency experience. She has now combined her love of travel and events management, planning to see the UK and Europe whilst working with us as a Project Manager.
Highlights of her career include working with a sponsor at the Australian Open but now she has the luxury of sightseeing around London after work – Lily says this is a dream opportunity for her. She loves the fact that Sleek Events manages several events around Europe, not just because they’re brilliant projects, but because charcuterie and cheese boards are her favourite so she is excited to taste some fabulous varieties along the way!
Having worked in event production for over 10 years, creating exhibitions, conferences and experiential events for clients such as SAP, AstraZeneca, HP Inc and Samsung, Amelia aces her role as Commercial Director. She’s not scared of admitting that she loves a spreadsheet! Her logical and analytical brain combines perfectly with our creative team.
But she’s not analytical all the time. At home she loves to cook for friends and family and rarely sticks to a recipe! When she’s not cooking up a storm or jumping into shark tanks (ask her more!), one of her favourite ways to relax is with a long walk and she’s spoilt for choice with the great walks around our office.
