Vikki Adamson

Senior Event Producer

Gilly's take on Vikki

Vikki is a self-starter whose work ethic is unparalleled. During her time with the Harris County – Houston Sports Authority she would oversee several aspects of multiple events, including the SWAC football and basketball championships, as well as the 2014 Transplant Games of America. 

Prior to this she took the lead in a major year round sponsor activation project for the London 2012 Olympics. She is hyper organised, committed to clients and her attention to detail is perfect. Vikki is warm, fun and calm under pressure - a fantastic addition to the YOURgb team.

Vikki, why event management?

There is no better feeling than seeing weeks and months of project planning come to fruition! Working in events means that every day is different with many high and lows along the way which makes it a fascinating, challenging and infectious industry to be part of.

What's it like working with you?

I'm told I am efficient with a sharp eye for detail, and I always keep a focused mind in a storm. I have been commended for my project management and stakeholder relationship skills which are always essential in an events world! Some say I have an infectious sense of humour which for me ensures the team have fun along the way! 

Where have you come from?

Having graduated from Stirling University with a degree in Marketing, I started my career in the Marketing department of Bank of Scotland in Edinburgh. I was then lucky enough to be part of the Sponsorship Activation team of Lloyds Banking Group working on the activation of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games for a 3 year period. I led the B2B activation strategy and plan which included client experience events, Olympic Torch Relay VIP events and the largest and most complex Games hospitality programme ever delivered. Experiencing a Games on home soil was something I will never forget. I then moved to Houston, Texas  where I worked for the Houston Sports Authority for 2 years planning and delivering a number of sporting events.

When you're not managing events?

Travel, food and sport are my passions and I try to combine them all as much as I can! I like to keep fit and healthy but socialising with friends and family and running after my little baby girl can sometimes get in the way.
