Jodi Egan

Job title: Account Manager

Born in: Bristol

Qualifications:BTEC National in Business & Finance, Prince 2 Practitioner & CIM Event Management

History: Worked in events for over 12 years, mainly in the technology sector. Jodi has delivered every type of corporate event with examples such as large scale conferences, gala dinners, awards ceremonies, roadshows and exhibitions both in the UK and internationally.

Experience: The largest event Jodi has managed was a 4 day conference in Boston, US for 1500 delegates. This included plenary sessions with well-known inspirational speakers, over 100 breakout sessions, a separate VIP agenda for press & analysts, eight regional dinners, a huge Gala dinner for all 1500, with entertainment from Spandau Ballet and others, and a large exhibition area with over 30 sponsors. High-heels were not an option that week!

Biggest challenge: Apart from the conference already mentioned, Jodi’s biggest challenge is finding a parking spot with a view of the football pitch when her son is playing football on a cold wet winter’s morning – so much better than the alternative!

Last year she and some friends completed the London Moonwalk and raised a whopping £14,500 for breast cancer charities.
