MY BRANDS:

My Story

I’m the Founder & CEO of the Eventful Group which owns Bournemouth 7s Festival, the Event Crowd and the Eventful Entrepreneur Podcast.

My entrepreneurial spirit came from growing up above pubs in London as a kid. I grew up with all sorts of characters from all walks of life which made me streetwise from a very young age. I learnt how to read people, ask the right questions and negotiate a deal which has served me well in business and in life.

While studying Sports Science at Loughborough University, I discovered my passion for the events industry. I launched ‘The Student Events Company’ and went on to create 3 student nightclub brands. We ended up putting on 1,500 events in major cities across the UK over 10 years. My next step was to create Bournemouth 7s festival, which since 2008 has attracted 30,000 party-goers annually.

In addition to this I also co hosted the Harry Redknapp Show, interviewing Piers Morgan, Frank Lampard, Eddie Hearn, Rod Stewart to name a few!

I am now on a mission to inspire the next generation by sharing my experiences, knowledge and more importantly bringing people together.
