Carla heads up the events team, helping to deliver Nesta's mission 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.
