Meet the team

JJ Jackson - Director

JJ has worked in events for over 20 years, and is now "poacher turned game keeper", booking celebrities for corporate events rather than running them himself, and finds previous experience invaluable when guiding both clients and artistes.

Like all of the team, JJ is dedicated to customer service, and going the extra mile. He lives in london, and his passions outside of business include classic cars, golf and fine dining.

Lauralee Whyte

Lauralee has worked in events for over 10 years, both supplying talent and running events herself. As well as working on the traditional conferences and awards, she is also developing our involvement with influencer marketing where people’s social media profile is often more important than traditional media profile. Like all the team, she’s hard working and conscientious, always going the extra mile for clients.
