Tom Heřmanovský

Gilly’s take on Tom

With a passion for the environment, Tom is our first Event and Sustainability Coordinator here at YOURgb. He is highly organised, driven, and resourceful – with an innate enthusiasm for making things happen. He has worked across the sport & leisure, hospitality, and environmental sectors, developing a wide range of versatile skills whilst doing so.

Environmental sustainability is an area that YOURgb are continually working on and investing in, both internally and externally for our clients. Measuring event carbon footprints and researching carbon reduction and offsetting has becoming a staple part of our event process – and Tom is at the heart of this work.  Tom brings such a positive energy, commitment, and enthusiasm to his role, and is always ready to jump head first into the next challenge.
