Leigh WardJunior Manager Operations
Born and based in Scotland, Leigh graduated from Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, with a First-Class BA Hons Degree in Event Management. The past eight years, she has worked in venues, operating and growing their events department and volunteering at a range of music festivals and sporting events. Most recently, she venue managed the Abu Dhabi Science Festival which spurred her on to working in international markets. Torn between focusing on her career and travelling, Leigh decided to move over to Vancouver to continue her career in events with ICS – best of both worlds! She has always been enthusiastic and passionate about live events and the experience the attendees/delegates take from these events is very important to her.
Aside from her career, Leigh enjoys going to concerts, practicing calligraphy, spending time with friends and exploring new places. She is looking forward to hiking and skiing loads whilst in Vancouver!
The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.
