What inspires you?

Good people, good music and great innovative events!

What enticed you to work for Eclipse?

Many years ago, I applied for a job as a flexi technician, Eclipse seemed like a fun place to work and I never looked back.

What is a typical day like for you?

Busy, starting with plenty of coffee! My time is spent between ensuring my team are okay, the events we are providing are all running seamlessly and winning new business. Keeping all of the plates spinning, all of this while keeping my Custard colleagues on their toes with plenty of activity!

Tell us something people would never guess about you?

I play the saxophone.

What exciting new development is on the cards for Eclipse?

Eclipse is constantly evolving to stay ahead-of-the-curve, so something new is always on the way! From new technology to exciting new partnerships. We’re busy with some exciting developments on the Eclipse brand at the moment – so watch this space!

What makes Eclipse the number one technical production company?

Our people are the greatest asset and without a doubt, separate us from the crowd.

What’s the future vision for Eclipse? 

Not to be the biggest, but to be the best. To continue in developing, growing and delivering better events.
