Meet Carly Gibbs, The Newest Event Management Expert at The Event School London!

Carly Gibbs, The Event School London's Newest Event Management Lecturer

We are thrilled to announce the newest addition to our teaching team at The Event School London – Carly Gibbs! With a remarkable 18 years of experience in event leadership, Carly brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our school, especially in the realms of strategy, operations, customer experience, and brand management.

Carly's most recent role as Head of Guest Experience at Chiswick Park Enjoy-Work showcases her exceptional skills in creating and delivering dynamic event experiences. Imagine organizing 300m zip lines, urban beaches, and music festivals, not to mention managing fireworks displays, sports tournaments, clubs, and workshops! Her ability to oversee such diverse and large-scale events speaks volumes about her capabilities and the insights she will bring to our students.

Her role extended beyond event planning, as Carly was also responsible for the brand, marketing, and communications of the Estate. Managing the App, social media, marketing, and PR, Carly has a well-rounded perspective on how events can shape and enhance brand image.

Before joining Chiswick Park, Carly worked at Grounded Events Company as a Project Manager, where she played a pivotal role in the UK rollout of the Electric Run Events. These included spectacular nighttime 5k events at iconic venues like Wembley Stadium in London and Etihad Stadium in Manchester, engaging up to 15,000 participants, 1,000 volunteers, and 500 crew. She was also the Event Director for the Finish Village of the Brighton Marathon Weekend, adding another feather to her cap of major event management.

Carly's experience is not just limited to the private sector; she has also made significant contributions to various charities such as Comic Relief and Cancer Research UK. Leading major fundraising events like Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Miles, and Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, Run 10K, and Shine events, she has demonstrated her ability to manage events that not only entertain but also make a difference.

Beyond her professional pursuits, Carly is an active sportswoman, a Level 3 Netball coach, and a qualified umpire. Her academic background in Sports Science from the University of Brighton further enriches her understanding of sports-related events.

We are incredibly excited to have Carly join our team. Her extensive experience, coupled with her dynamic approach to event management, makes her a perfect fit for The Event School London. Our students are in for an enlightening and inspiring learning journey with Carly at the helm. Welcome aboard, Carly! 🌟🎉
