Alexandra is an experienced event professional with a career primarily within International Corporate organisations. She achieved a 2.1 (Hons) LLB Law degree and intended to practice as a solicitor before deciding life was going to be much more fun planning events for lawyers than actually being one. Her career has taken her through the ranks of in-house events teams and she is currently a Vice President at Barclays Corporate Banking leading a team of event planners. Having entered the event world through being the client, she has a unique perspective on how corporates should approach their event programmes and how event professionals can add the most value and be the experts they truly are within a challenging corporate environment.
Alex has an addiction to canapés which she counters by training to run marathons. She splits her time between her home in London and Oxford, where she and her fiancé own and run a country pub.
