Evie Bowyer

Phoebe Walker

If I could play netball every day of the week I would! Hopeless at managing my own finances and walking in high heels. My guilty pleasure is reality TV, much to my parents disappointment. I also fancy myself as somewhat of an interior design guru (as I have been to IKEA at least 4 times).

Dan Preston

Avid football fan ( soft spot for Reading FC) video game aficionado & creator of a cracking Spotify playlist. I'm in constant search of the perfect burger and the ultimate craft beer. Currently trying to overcome a major Netflix addiction. Travel enthusiast and couch potato at the same time makes me the perfect example of an oxymoron.

Bit of a TV geek when it comes to Friends. I count myself as a bit of a Rachel - love fashion and to pamper myself! Nando’s is the key to my heart.

Emma Waite

Ice-cream enthusiast, new experience trier and lover of an 60’s playlist. My favourite emoji according to my iPhone, a slice of pizza. Some unchecked items on my bucket list are: to visit Japan, to be fluent in another language, buy my own place, sky dive and cut out popcorn from my diet. The last proving to be the most difficult.

Everything is figureoutable (or googleable)! Outside the office you will find me practising yoga, dancing, cooking or discovering a new language. Adore French films, the sea and cheese. An incurable Spotify fanatic!

Kirstin Macrae

It would be easier the list the things I don’t love doing! Outside of the crazy world of events you will find me; swimming, playing netball, on the golf course, eating or in the pub listen to live music with my friends. The other loves in my life are my 2 doggies and my motorbike a stunning Triumph Bonneville.

Shivonne Glenn

Travelling is my passion. I’m always planning the next trip, and adding new destinations to my bucket list. Hot or cold, wet or dry, near or far, you’ll find me there! When not gallivanting around, I love having a few glasses of Sauvignon Blanc with friends and family, and catching up on the news.

Gemma Radford

A smiley, positive, go getter after I have fed, organised, dressed and sorted out 2 small people in the morning! On days off you will find me at the gym, chatting with friends drinking bubble, getting involved in my kids activities/being a kid myself... P.S don’t ask me a question unless you want an honest answer

Ali Challoner

Theatre going, F1 fan who loves nothing more than spending time with my friends and family... and shopping. When not doing any of that I can be found walking the dog or being sat on/used as a pillow by him. Happiest in the warmth of sunshine, not a fan of the cold or snow.

Katharine Ayling

Most likely to be found constantly eating, at the gym, with friends or planning the next adventure! I love to travel and meet new people which goes hand in hand with my job. As a former cheerleader, my friends would describe me as super enthusiastic and always on the go!

Alice Gillate Pountney

I’m a pint-sized Londoner with aspirations to make a decent lemon drizzle cake, a history nerd who loves nothing more than exploring it through travel. I love pretty shoes for my feet, pretty bags for my arm, yoga for my soul…and wine for my sanity!

Lou Collins

I have been working in the events industry for the past 20 years, and not a day goes by when I am not pleased with my chosen career path. Outside of work I like to clear my head by going on long walks and cooking up some tasty cuisines for my family and friends

Lea Graham

I spend much of my spare time running around after my 2 lovely/lively daughters and I have a fondness for Gin. I love to get away from it all with my closest friends camping in fields or forests and by the sea. At work, I'm the go-to person for anything Excel related.

Jen Banfield

I like to be outside as much as possible, running or cycling… I'm not very fast but it keeps me fit! Other than exercise, time away from work is spent with the other half and the step-kids, trying to pry them away from their iPads and re-equant them with the outside world.

Sam Moody

Having previously been a trolley dolly before a career in events, I still have the travel bug (even if the office isn't at 38,000 feet!) I love spending time with my gorgeous family and friends, especially if it involves a glass (or 2!) of bubbly!

Des Jefferies

I joined touch in 2015. I live with 3 black cats and in my spare time enjoy nothing more than playing snooker, pool and chess.

Richard Salado

Jane Jennings

Outside of the office, I love spending time with my family and friends. Long, hot summer holidays and being horizontal on a lounger with a good book and a glass of fizz are also essential! I’m also known as a bit of a crazy cat lady thanks to my 2 cats who just chose to move in one day!

Lindsay Abbott

Self-confessed neat freak. My time out of work is spent with my husband and 2 sporty children, mainly on the side of a football, rugby pitch and tennis court. If I have any time after that, I put my feet up in the designated section of my garden known as “wine corner”

Chloe Lovett

I’m an enthusiastic traveller, sun worshipper, and experience go-getter! When I’m not globe-trotting you’ll find me working on my online beauty & lifestyle blog with my sister or indulging in delicious food and wine at local hotspots. It should also be mentioned that I’m a sucker for reality TV shows and that my iPod contains excessive 90s music!

Katie Swain

I have 2 wonderful children who I enjoy dragging away from their devices to join me on bike rides, table tennis and badminton. I have 2 Labradors that require long walks (this also helps with my Fitbit obsession!) I’m also a keen netball player. In a previous life I was a science geek and studied Biochemistry at the University of Liverpool and worked in Sensory Science before discovering the wonderful world of events!

Claire Highton Barge

A bit of a collector, I seem to gather nicknames (most often known simply as Barge), gin (picking up new bottles on my travels) and yoga injuries (headstands are so hard!). One day I hope to be fluent in Spanish and travel South America. I’ll try to pick up more gin along the way!

Lauren Malone

Northern girl enjoying the hustle and bustle of the big smoke. I love yoga, trying new restaurants and spending time with my friends. Away from the office you will usually find me with a G & T in hand, exploring different parts of London or making plans to scratch off more of the world on my wall map.

Carly Gargett

Aussie-Brit celeb stalker and roving royalist reporter! I might be on Kate’s blacklist, but I still found a way to be at the birth of my would-of-been-should-of-been son...Prince George! Always on the move and generally with a cocktail in hand, I have lots of time for family, friends, shopping, stalking and generally having a hoot!

Amy Gregory

In my free time I am either listening to music, going to gigs or helping run music nights. Love the sunshine, sea and sleeping outside, probably shouldn’t be living in London. But we do have the best music scene and food (in my opinion), plus there’s still travelling and festivals!

Carrie Pearce

Outside of touch, I love to fill my time playing netball, going to a variety of gym classes or socialising with the girls – particularly working through the gin or cocktail menu! Family is also key to me and I love country or coastal walks with my husband or taking on the role of crazy auntie to my nephews and niece.

Anita Wild

Music loving mum of a toddler who keeps me on my toes! I enjoy getting hooked on a good box set with a glass of wine in hand. Looking forwards to getting back into the pilot’s seat of a light aircraft, and for my DIY mad husband to finish building the hot tub – currently unsure which will happen first.

Professional sun chaser and part time fruit cider drinker. I love spending time with my friends and family… but I am always counting down the days until my next getaway.

Food lover and music blogger who’s always up for new things and being creative! Happiest when I’m spending time with my massive family and amazing friends or laughing at the silliest things.

Anything that involves cheese, beer and a dog makes me happy. I am also an avid country music fan and would kill to be able to take annual trips to Nashville. Oh, and one time I climbed Kilimanjaro!

Claire Moore

Disproportionate love of all things orange (except the fruit strangely). Currently working my way through the Ottolenghi cookbook with varying degrees of success, my children still look forward to the day I serve them something that doesn’t have sumac, za’atar or pomegranate molasses in it! Favourite saying: try it; you might like it.

Pete Finn

Loving life as a new dad, I also love music, travelling and discovering the world. You’ll always find me with a good book or three on the go at any one time. A big fan of sports from skiing to scuba diving, anything that gets me outside is a winner especially my border collie.

James Thompson

Rachael Vincent

I love to travel and discover new places, but am equally happy with a great film! Having a crazy 5-year-old boy gives me a great excuse to relive childhood passions of fast fairground rides and water slides, which make you smile for no reason at all!

Kevin Nash

Grace Hockie

Julie Scott

A lover of the outdoors, you’ll find me happiest when hiking my way to a spectacular view or taking a mosey along the coast. Very much a seeker of adventure and travel and all things creative and design. A hopeless romantic and a sucker for period dramas, where are you Mr. Darcy?!

Charlotte Buffery

In my spare time, I love to travel and see family and friends over a rather large glass of wine. In another life, before entering the events industry, I worked as a fashion designer so you will often find me pattern cutting over the weekends making the next unwearable item.

Rebecca Fortescue-Phillips

Until I realise my life’s dream of opening a wildlife sanctuary, I fill my spare time travelling with my wife and then blogging about it, volunteering at a youth club, attending air-shows, taking too many photos I never use and watching our Aussie god-daughter grow up over Skype.

Hey, that’s healthy in moderation, right!?

Stephanie Graves

Joyce Devine

A Mom of 2 ever-growing pre-teen/teenage boys, I am always on the move! When I’m not cheering from the stands at a basketball game or holding pads for my future black belt practising his latest moves, I can be found in the kitchen trying out a new recipe to feed my hungry men!
