Head of Events
Carla and her team help bring all areas of Nesta's work to life via live events. From breakfasts and learning lunches to our flagship annual event, FutureFest.
Prior to Nesta, Carla was Head of Event Operations and Customer Services for live events at Haymarket Media Group. Her experience focuses on attendee experience as well as developing and activating innovative, engaging and commercially successful event formats.
After working on over 1000 events in her career to date, Carla has plenty of war stories. If you’re interested, ask her about the time a London bus-load of delegates decided to take a magical mystery detour on the way to an event.
Outside of work Carla loves sushi, her twin daughters, learning British Sign Language and her two massive Maine Coon cats. Though not necessarily in that order.
