New beginnings

I was reminded this week that I hadn’t blogged since November and took that as a silent instruction to add some content.

A lot has happened in the past couple of months and in amongst that I have gained a new niece (I already have 3 nieces and 2 nephews) and have also left my job on 4thn Jan.

The decision to leave my job wasn’t an easy one and many a dialogue (both internal and external) went on to make sure that it was the right one and though I am still unemployed I am not yet worried. I have worked in accounting for the past 11 years and while I do enjoy it and am good at it I wanted to take the successes of the last year and the experience that I have gathered over the past 5 years and use it to propel myself into a new and currently uncomfortable zone.

Outside of my day job I have always done events based work for friends, for myself and also in a small part for my previous employer. I enjoy this very much and taking the leap to give it a go has come at a very natural point in my life that I can only assume God has led me to.

This year I will be working very hard to increase the services and successes of Purple Hill ( my Event Planning and Artist Assistance Company as well as looking for my first Events/Marketing full time job. I will also be heading the Oxjam Shoreditch Festival Team again and we will be working very hard to bring you a better and more exciting event this year. I think that I will end up with my fingers in many pies this year but I am prepared and excited for all of the ups and downs and learning’s and successes.

If you or anyone you know would like to discuss the things that I have mentioned above then please do get in contact at
