Do you know the recipe to a great event? Unique ideas, being on the same wavelength as your help/team, and a good chunk of spending money and/or grinding to really make it work.

I love bringing people together, and ensuring it's interesting enough to leave a lasting impression. Be that through introducing new people, raising a good chunk of money and awareness for a local charity or cause or just some good fun.

For a long time I've done these things off of my own back, recently, I’ve received money for an event I proposed and it definitely makes a world of difference - by reducing the pressure of the value of my own time (the bank doesn't care if you're a good person), by having the right resources within reach and marketing spend.

Events are great for the community, we all want to have a good time, and visitors from out of town want the same which means a bit of cash injection for the town, maybe even your next long distance relationship which will eventually move said love interest in to your place and we have a new local. When the money is there, paying for peoples skills, and services to help you make the event you dream of. If you have an epic idea, a few connections and want to have a yarn I'm always keen on throwing some ideas and people to talk to in the mix with you.

I've listed a few here, if you would like to be on the list then reach out!
