Gilly’s take on Linsey

Linsey is an experienced event professional with a calm and confident management style. She has worked on events including OPITO Global 2019 in Kuala Lumpur along with the BHGE 10K Running Festival, and she has vast experience in creating large scale corporate events. Her overall passion lies in guest experience design, and she is deeply client centric. Her positive approach to her work means that nothing is ever too much trouble, and she goes above and beyond to ensure that her clients’ expectations are continually exceeded.

Linsey’s expertise also covers a strong focus on marketing and communications, where she applies a strategic approach to support the promotion and selling of events whilst always considering brand positioning to ensure excellent consumer engagement. Never one to shy away from rolling up her sleeves and getting stuck in, Linsey is wonderful and an asset to the YOURgb team.

Linsey’s career highlights

  • Working on my first event after leaving University to organise a music festival called the Big Beach Ball – This is when I fell in love with events!
  • Flying over to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to organise a two-day conference with astronaut Tim Peake as the key speaker
  • Organising the Baker Hughes 10k race in Aberdeen for 4 years, annually attracting 4000 participants, raising thousands of pounds for charity
  • Planning four events over three days for Offshore Europe, one of which only had a two-week lead time and took place on a ferry!

Unique fact

I ended up in a TV advert for the Kiltwalk (doing many, many star jumps!) before then walking the 26 miles for charity

The best compliment Linsey has received

‘Linsey is possibly THE most organised person I know! She single-handedly coordinated the whole Baker Hughes 10k, with the highest levels of precision. Every little detail was covered in her plans and as a result, the run up to, and the event itself, ran seamlessly. As well as her skills in organisation, attention to detail, and her determination to do a good job, Linsey is a bubbly, enthusiastic person – one everyone wants to be around!’
