Sue Birch

Sue’s background goes back a little further than Katie’s, being the mother of the partnership. She commenced in the Pharmaceutical industry as a corporate event planner in Hampshire and other locations in the UK, organising Conferences/Meetings and Product launches for some of the major Global organisations. This followed with a move into the Publishing sector, where Sue delivered spectacular Award Ceremonies and Gala Dinners across both the Health and Food and Farming sectors, at such prestigious venues as the House of Commons. In the latter years, Sue has also integrated her catering skills into the party planning services that the team can now provide.

Katie Birch

Katie’s desire and passion for Event Management developed from an early age, as she assisted Sue, running some of her events. Having gained her qualifications in Business Management and Accounting, Katie moved to Jersey and worked in a Country Hotel, where she managed a variety of events like parties and weddings. On her return, Sue and Katie made the decision to join forces.

Together, with their professional team of event staff, they now pride themselves on offering a range of refreshing and inspiring Event Planning, Catering and Event Management services, both on a local basis in Hampshire and Berkshire and across the UK.
