Hello JAM readers! My name is Lucy and I’ve been a friend of Julie-Ann for a long time! I’ve been consulting with J Marshall Events from the tea-fuelled city of London for the past couple of years and now I am here living in New York for the first time!
I’ve been involved in events for over eight years in London, Europe and New Zealand for a wide range of organizations from not-for-profits (Variety the Children’s Charity, the Royal Society of Medicine) to large corporations (Microsoft, Reuters, Capita), and I love the different experiences that every event brings.
Since moving to the states, I have been using my event skills and soaking up knowledge of NYC through collaborating with Julie-Ann, volunteering at the World Cares Center and attending graduate business classes at Columbia University. Busy, busy, busy!
I must extend a big thanks to Julie-Ann for making me feel part of the team so quickly, and I look forward to working on many more projects in the months to come. Watch this space for further news on what the next few months brings for me as I navigate New York City, school, events and volunteering – oh, did I mention I’m also training for a half marathon in my spare time :). Good thing I’m in the city that never sleeps!
