From the Directors

“I have always been passionate about the eventing industry. I wanted to help the smaller venues whilst simplifying the process of event planning. I also wanted to create something that would allow me the freedom to work from anywhere in the world.”

Ashleigh Gurney

“As an entrepreneur I have always been passionate about networking with people and finding solutions to problems. Helping strangers connect to the people they need to and solving problems at the same time is truly a pleasure!”
