What’s your favourite eve venue hidden gem?
The ultra-modern Haberdashers’ Hall, which was opened by HRH the Queen in 2002. The panelling in the event space, called the Luncheon Room, is salvaged from the original livery hall that was built 1461.

What’s your top venue finding tip?
If you want the best possible date and venue for your Christmas party it pays to book early. Some of our clients book next year’s Christmas party before they have even had this year’s.

What snack gets you through your working day?
A packet of Hobnobs. Biscuits for breakfast ¬– yep. After lunch – yep. After dinner with a cuppa tea – of course.

What song gets you going in the morning?
Jump Around by House of Pain. TUNE!

What gadget can’t you leave home without?
My Kindle which is perfect for the commute. The book I’m reading at the moment is This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas.

What’s your drink of choice?
Starbucks Chilled Latte. As a mum (that’s my little girl’s rabbit in the photo) I never get to drink a hot coffee so these bad boys are amazing! But I do love a chilled glass of Prosecco.

What’s your holiday must-have?
Lancaster Tan Maximum. Prolong that tan!

What one thing could you not live without?
My hairdryer!

What do you always have in your bag?
Carmex lip balm, my favourite sunglasses, my Benefit Brow Zings kit, lash curlers

Do you have a favourite app?
The app I can’t live without is ASOS. Virtual window-shopping is my favourite thing to do.

What’s your favourite TV show:
Power Staring by Omari Hardwick.

How do you unwind after work?
Walking my boxer dog Marlie is a joy and a hot bath with lots of bubbles and candles, followed by a cup of tea (and a Hobnob)
