    Running In Heels: Event Work!

    I’m pretty proud of my career. I quit uni (against most people’s better judgement) after giving it a go for six months. I’d always wanted to work, and I dutifully went to intern for my sister for a week… and didn’t leave for another three years… I’m now a Client Services Director at a Software Company (which is more exciting than it sounds!) but in the last ten years I’ve been working, without doubt my favourite part of the job has been marketing and events.

H on the other hand was adamant we should go, so we wrapped up in our thermals, threw on some extra layers for good measure and, on slightly calmer roads, followed the Sat Nav to Penvgillar National Park.
