"There are plenty of opportunities
to develop your career"
As the Event Manager for Reed UK's marine science events, I'm responsible for ensuring the success of the individual shows which involves managing the various teams and individuals that work on them. I also have overall responsibility for developing the strategy for our event portfolio, identifying new business opportunities and building partnerships to further strengthen the events.
Every day is busy, but I get great satisfaction from knowing that we've successfully delivered for our customers and partners – and realising the commercial goals of the business.
I think that Reed has got the balance right – yes, it's a large global organisation, but it can enable groups to be more dynamic and embed within their industries.
Our working environment has just about the right amount of pressure to achieve our targets while striking a decent work/life balance for its employees.
