About Nesta

Nesta is an innovation foundation. For us, innovation means turning bold ideas into reality and changing lives for the better. We use our expertise, skills and funding in areas where there are big challenges facing society.

Carla heads up the events team, helping to deliver Nesta and the Behavioural Insights Team's work through a mixture of digital and live events.

Before Nesta, Carla worked in the commercial events sector as Head of Operations and Client Services for Haymarket Media Group where she worked on events for business-to-business titles Campaign, Third Sector, PRWeek, C&IT, Event, WindPower Monthly, Ends, GP and MIMS. There, she was responsible for the operational delivery, supplier management, partnerships and customer services for over 100 live and digital events a year.

Outside of work, Carla loves sushi, her twin daughters, learning British Sign Language and her two massive Maine cats. Although, not necessarily in that order.
