Corporate Events

You only get one chance to make an impression, so it’s vital that impression is on brand and reflects your company and your staff. We will make sure that all the little details are taken care of, from beautiful decor to delicious food and drink, each designed to add individuality to your event.

 

Events have changed dramatically over the last year and knowing what type of event to move forward with can be a difficult decision. When you choose to work with us to plan your event, you can be safe in the knowledge that you’re in experienced, capable hands.

Virtual Events

Virtual events have seen a huge rise in popularity over the last couple of years, and with the necessity that the global pandemic has enforced, many clients have chosen to take their previously in person events, online.

There are many options to consider when it comes to virtual events, with various platforms and bespoke options out there.  We work with clients to help them to understand the best route for their event, whether it be live, hybrid or completely virtual.

“Michelle helped us deliver an online event using the Hopin platform, by acting as liaison between us and the company we were using to livestream the main stage talks, and offering general event management support in the run up.  She was professional and unflappable, maintaining constant communication with us and ensuring smooth running.  Not having to worry about that part of the event was very helpful as we had multiple streams of activity over a whole day of programming.  I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking for event management or support.”

Conferences

Conference organisation is an art: venue location, online registration, payments, catering, agenda, speakers, travel, VIPs, website, design, badging, sponsors, and exhibitor management. I have experience in managing conferences of all sizes and budgets. My experience has been built up over many years working for a multitude of clients across several industries. I can manage your event from concept to delivery, creating a memorable event for you, your delegates and speakers within your budget.

Gala Dinners and Awards Ceremonies

Gala dinners and awards ceremonies can be a perfect way to close an event. I design and manage professional and smooth running awards events. In addition, I work with a wealth of suppliers offering new and exciting ways to entertain your guests, which will make you stand out from the crowd.

Incentive Travel

Incentive travel events can be used for a variety of reasons: employee motivation, reward, retention, or to promote customer loyalty. I have experience of organising incentives for organisations both in the UK and worldwide. So, if you are considering options on how you might motivate your employees or retain customers through an incentive program, please get in touch.

Corporate Hospitality

Companies have been mixing business with pleasure for many years. Whether it’s about starting new relationships, building existing ones, or creating new business opportunities. I can design a bespoke experience for you and your client, creating a unique and memorable experience that your guests will remember for years to come.

Team Building

Creating a day to show your employees how much they mean to your company is so important. If you invest time, effort and money in the people that work for you, your investment will pay for itself. A successful team day can motivate your staff and raise productivity. I can design a bespoke team building package around your objectives and budget.

KIND WORDS

Lynn Shepherd

“For 20 years, Venturefest Oxford has been providing the platform for entrepreneurs to connect with investors and other support services. Michelle has been our Event Manager for eight of those 20 years and under her stewardship it has become the leading event of its kind in Oxfordshire and The Thames Valley. Her vision, expertise, wide network of contacts and her considerable attention to detail have produced an annual event attracting over 1,000 people. No problem is too small or too large, no budget is too small or too large! The Board at Venturefest Oxford has nothing but praise for Michelle’s role in the success of our event and unreservedly urge you to work with her!”

Lynn Shepherd

Dave Waller

“We commissioned Michelle to provide all aspects of event management for our annual event. As a result I worked closely with Michelle on the design of the event (which brought together about a thousand people for a day of intense networking), on the content of the day, selection of venues, marketing to our investor, innovator and entrepreneur target audiences, preparation of speakers, organising the very best refreshments and post event dinner, layout, signage and registration by a well managed team of staff and then analysing the data and learning from each event. Incredibly hard working and committed as well as great fun to work with, I cannot recommend Michelle too highly”

Dave Waller

Phil Gordon

Michelle is brilliant. She’s creative, but shows attention to detail (a rare combination). She knows how to manage a complex project, can work really well on own initiative, but is also a pleasure to work with as part of a team. She gets things done and she’s lovely too

Phil Gordon

Adam Greener

“I have worked with Michelle across a number of large projects for a series of blue chip companies at the planning, execution and reconciliation stages. At every step in the process Michelle proved to be industrious and innovative with a great eye for detail and a very good grasp of how to manage client relationships. Honest, fun and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure the highest levels of service delivery, I would recommend Michelle to any organisation without hesitation”

Adam Greener

David, Corporate Event

“Michelle, you bring enthusiasm and professionalism in equal measure while being very patient with our slow responses. Your attention to detail is outstanding which provides real confidence that nothing will be done to embarrass our reputation. Above all its fun working with you and the team. So many thanks”

David, Corporate Event
