Helen Ellis to lead Live Events

We are excited to welcome Helen Ellis to team HGA as the new Head of Live Events!

Helen has spent 15 years in the events industry – working in-house, agency and freelance with a huge range of big-name brands in the UK and abroad. She brings with her a wealth of experience, enthusiasm and talent. She will be leading our team on all live events from conferences and award dinners to team building and brand activations.

Helen began her career in PR, a world that’s all about communications, strategy, organising teams of people and telling stories. She organically gravitated towards the events side of the business early on, drawn to the huge variety of projects that this job brings. From pitch proposals to onsite production, she will work closely with all our departments and clients to continue HGA’s 30-year legacy and deliver the UK’s best events.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Helen to HGA and look forward to seeing the impact she has on our services, our clients and our multi-talented team. She joins us in an exciting period of growth as we celebrate our 30th birthday year and prepare to deliver some of our biggest events yet in December and throughout 2020.”

Dan Laurence, Managing Director, HGA

“This is an exciting opportunity for me to take the reins and deliver some fantastic live events for a truly impressive client list. I look forward to working with such a great team of people.”
