From engineering wannabe to successful auditor, to mystery writer and specialist in social team building.

How I came to be promoting socialising and having fun 

"I’ve always loved writing but have also been drawn to science so choosing which path to follow, Arts or science, was hard. When I gave up English to pursue maths physics and chemistry A levels I assumed I was destined to be down the science path. But here I am with a BA and a writing and events career.

I’ve been writing murder mysteries for decades alongside my career as an auditor and work in the charity sector. I’ve written dinner party games, teen role play games, children’s games and fund raisers as part of ITM Games.

Then, in 2007, following a very successful career as an auditor in large commercial organisations and the public sector, I decided to give up finance and go to London Metropolitan University, where I got 1st class honours in Event Management.

I set up Invitation To Events in 2011 and produced a full cast murder mystery play. By 2013 I had included treasure hunts into the mix and set up Treasure Hunts In London. In 2015 I wrote the book on social team-building called “What are we going to do next?”"

The eagle eyed amongst you may notice I said "From engineering wannabe to successful auditor......."

Although I'd taken the maths/science route with a view to becoming an engineer, I soon realised that I was better suited to a financial career. I was an auditor in large commercial organisations and the public sector until 2017, when I gave it all up to pursue a new path.

And as for the engineering - Reader, I married him.

“The proprietor has a hard-earned and enviable academic record in the field of event management, plus a demonstrated flair for the dramatic, all of which points to the organisers knowing both the theory and practice of how to put on a show. Definitely one to watch!”
