Head of Event Technology

Getting to know James...

What do you like about your role?
Our clients love using new and developing technologies and I love being able to pitch, brainstorm or take an idea from our clients or our team and be able to see it right through to delivery. Everything is possible!
What will a typical day be like in your role?
No two days are the same, I can be found pitching to clients, on-site visits or working with the team at our HQ on upcoming projects and development. To developing new and exciting solutions in our purpose-built facility and supporting the events team or even on site overseeing our delivery of solutions.
What’s your favourite movie and why?
It has to be Ridley Scott’s Classic: Gladiator, possibly the best film of all time.
What’s your favourite book and why?
I read a lot of non-fiction, but Richard Branson’s autobiographies are well worth a read and are packed full of funny, insightful stories and lessons from his life and career.
What telly are you addicted to at the moment?
I don’t watch a lot of TV but my most recent binges have been Chernobyl, SAS: Who Dares Wins and Vikings
Tell us about your pet
I have a 1-year old rescue cat called Beans who I’ve had since she was about 3 days old. She got her name from her excessive amount of energy. She's been climbing me like a tree ever since.
Sunday brunch or Sunday roast?
Sunday Roast!
Which of HGA’s values mean the most to you and why?

In the gym! I'm practically an addict.

Chris’ 90’s playlist!
