Co-founder, Event First Steps
With 10 years experience, Elena is a Creative Event Producer currently based in London. She works on experiential projects across the world from ideation and pitch stage through to final delivery with a variety of clients - including global tech and beauty brands. With a keen interest in thoughtful experience design, diversity, and accessibility in events, she regularly delivers content in these areas for some of the biggest trade shows and press in the sector. Elena is also cofounder of Event First Steps. She has since worked on events in house for a marketing team, venue and agency side, and was the operations manager for the UK chapter of an events association. Elena's career path was massively changed by building her network of contacts before graduating, learning about aspects of the events world that you can't imagine from a lecture hall. She is keen to help other newcomers find their feet in the same way.
