Leigh WardCoordinator Conference
Born and based in Scotland, I graduated from Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, with a First-Class BA Hons Degree in Event Management. The past 8 years I have worked in venues operating and growing their events department and volunteering at a range of music festivals and sporting events. Most recently, I venue managed the Abu Dhabi Science Festival which spurred me on to work internationally. Torn between focusing on my career and travelling, I decided to move over to Vancouver to continue my career in events with ICS – best of both worlds! I have always been enthusiastic and passionate about live events and the experience the attendees/delegates take from these events is very important to me.
Aside from my career I enjoy going to concerts, practicing calligraphy, spending time with friends and exploring new places. I am looking forward to hiking and skiing loads whilst in Vancouver!
