Meet the Team

We are a small team who deliver BIG results!

Lyndsay Wilson

Events Director

I have been with the business for over ten years, time certainly has flown by with new event concepts and building on our existing portfolio.  I am extremely proud of how the department has grown and continues to flourish and offer clients unique brand positioning.  Along with my love of events I am avid lover of fashion, interior design and my beloved boyband…Boyzone.

Linsey Hunter

Events Manager

I have managed events for over seven years across all sectors. I have organised all types of events from conferences to awards dinners to weddings. My role is to deliver a number of events throughout the year to ensure our guests and speakers have a fantastic experience with us. When I am not organising our amazing events portfolio, you will find me playing Just Dance or Let’s Sing on the Nintendo Switch.

Stephen Laughlin

Events Manager

I manage a range of multiple different events and absolutely love my job and the challenges that come with it whilst managing client relationships and working with many different businesses. My career in events management has allowed me to plan and manage many different types of events globally. In my spare time I’m usually exploring the north of Scotland and it’s mountains or socialising with friends over a gin.


Thanks for organising the event! It was a positive step for us in terms of building a community of intrapreneurs across Scotland.

Just a quick note to say well done on another fantastic Scottish Politician awards. Once again, I’ve had very positive feedback from those attending from Virgin Trains who, like me, recognise the value of our involvement in such a prestigious and thoroughly enjoyable event.
