I had a great job in as a Construction Project Manager in London but being a mother came first so I naturally put my career was on hold for a short time.
“I then had an incredible opportunity to join the Australian Embassy and was working there for a few years before they began asking me to help arrange and manage a few events.
I quickly realised events were my passion.”
“Options for Event Management courses are very limited in the Middle East but after some research online, I quickly found The Event Academy!”
“I was looking for a highly accredited and recognised qualification as well as something that was flexible around my family commitments – I immediately liked what I read on the Event Academy website – it was perfect.”
“About a month ago, lots of elements fell into place and I opened my own Event Management company called In The Detail Events with my business partner.”
We launched the company officially at the start of May by hosting a Grand Charity Iftar in support of a local animal Charity Rescue.
We sold out the event over capacity and raised over 15,000AED – such a great feeling!”
I love my job and it’s my total dream to have my own company as each day is totally different!
One day I might be discussing a wedding with a client or looking at decorations for a Hawaiian themed party or even planning the logistics of a huge city wide Adventure Race!
I love the variation; I love the flexibility it gives to my family as I am still able to do the school run etc as I can set my own diary.
Just do it! There is always a reason to not do something – ‘the timings not right or it’s a busy period’…
I nearly talked myself out of it but sometimes you just have to go for it and trust that everything else will fall into place.
Also don’t forget to have hobbies for yourself! Everyone jokes that I can’t fit another thing into my time, but for me, that’s the best way to be!
