Finlay Bain

Event Planner

Gilly's take on Fin

Finlay is an absolute joy to work with. He is charismatic, personable, extremely hard working, efficient and passionate about pleasing the people he works with.

Finlay is based in London, and as well as being an events professional, he is an actor. His acting talents prove hugely valuable both pre-event and on-site as he is well practiced at rehearsing the details, and his confidence and warmth on-site ensures that everyone feels welcomed and at ease. 

He is also a self confessed perfectionist with a real care for the customer/audience experience. He is calm under pressure, with a wonderful sense of humour and possesses a can do attitude that is so much needed in our industry. An experienced team player who is not afraid to take the lead, Finlay delivers events with heart, and always puts his audience first.

Fin, why event management?

For me, I work in events because each day is different and exciting. Much like acting, you’re constantly working with different people in different situations which on a social and professional level is hugely rewarding.

What's it like working with you?

I suppose their are two sides to me when working an event. I find the set up and planning of an event to be very important and I tend to be a bit more serious and focussed to make sure we have everything we need and are completely ready. When the event begins the more outgoing side to me is on show - I enjoy hosting and making everyone feel welcome and well looked after.

Where have you come from?

I grew up in Edinburgh and have now been living in London for five years working in events and acting.

When you're not managing events?

I am acting, writing and auditioning. I enjoy going out with friends and in particular seeing some theatre. I’m a rugby fan and also try to keep fit and healthy.
