The team’s take on Gilly

For us, Gilly is the heart of YOURgb. Her dedication and work ethic inspire our team and our clients on a daily basis.
It’s safe to say that Gilly’s passion for performing arts resonates in her approach to the events we deliver at YOURgb. She wants every event to be a showstopper and her first priority is always providing the most amazing guest experience possible. She is a non-stop #girlboss full of talent, charisma, positivity and energy, who constantly challenges us to innovate the event management scene, and to take our professional capabilities to the next level.

Gilly’s career highlights

•Riding pillion at 80mph on the Triumph Speed Triple R during its launch with YOURgb at Jerez racetrack
•Sitting next to Ben Shephard during ITV’s Pride of Britain whilst working with TSB
•Working with Richard Branson and his team during the Press Launch for the upcoming Virgin Hotel Edinburgh

Unique fact

I’ve run the London and Paris Marathons, having not run more than 5k before them (London 3hrs 49mins – if I can do that… anyone can do anything).

Life motto

“Somebody said that it couldn’t be done, but she with a chuckle replied, that “maybe it couldn’t,” but she would be one, who wouldn’t say no till she tried. So, she buckled right in, with the trace of a grin, on her face. If she worried she hid it. She started to sing, as she tackled the thing, that couldn’t be done, and she did it”.

Key strengths

•Determination
•Empathy
•Cracking sense of humour
