Event Management: Charity Awards Ceremony
I project managed a prestigious awards ceremony for 400 successful women business owners, CEO’s and senior directors. The aim of the event was to raise £100,000 for the chosen charity, which was exceeded. The ceremony was held at one of London’s top hotels, hosted by an established TV personality and was partnered with some of the UK’s biggest brands.
My duties in organising and hosting this event included:
- Producing event rationale documents and function sheets
- Managing event meetings and event schedules
- Budget management
- Securing the venue, caterers, entertainment, AV and production
- Distributing invitations and managing RSVP lists
- Negotiating collaborative brand partnership opportunities
- Managing the event running order and allocating team tasks
Organised, efficient, forward thinking, creative, confident, well presented - and always with a smile on her face.
“She has a special ability to pre-empt, identifying where you need support before you know yourself. She bought great value to the company and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her”.
Lucy Moss, Creative Director
Leanne’s ability to manage several projects simultaneously is particularly impressive. She has been invaluable to both my business and personal life.
“I have worked with Leanne for over 6 years. She is professional, highly efficient, reliable and most of all incredibly organised. From keeping my diary and email account in order and overseeing the bookkeeping to managing an office relocation and events for up to 400 people, Leanne takes the stress out of tasks and allows me to focus on managing the business and family life. She has the ability to take control of various tasks crucial to the running of the business and does this with great competency and always with accuracy and attention to detail. I trust Leanne implicitly and know that tasks are safe in her hands. I would not hesitate to recommend Leanne to anyone looking for business and administrative support”.

Office Relocation: Moving to Mayfair
I was tasked with delivering a smooth office relocation for a team of 12 to Mayfair. The project included managing all logistics, from sourcing the office space and creating floor plans to arranging the removals teams and coordinating the set up of the new office space.
Smaller, yet crucial tasks included purchasing office furniture, setting up IT and telecoms, finalising new stationery with the change of address, informing suppliers of the move and redirecting post.
