A Toast to Excellence: Celebrating Lecturer Emma Murray-Jones' Dedication to Industry Engagement and Mentorship

Emma Murray-Jones, Lecturer, The Event School London and Luxury Wedding & Event Planner

In the vibrant heart of London's event industry, where the competition is fierce, and the demand for excellence is at its peak, Emma Murray-Jones stands out not only as an example of success but also as a beacon of generosity.

The Event School London is delighted to recognise Emma with the Award for Excellence in Industry Engagement, a testament to her contribution to industry engagement both as an educator and as an eminent luxury event planner.

Emma's journey in the world of luxury and high-end events began over a decade ago, learning the delicate art of five-star hospitality and event planning within the storied walls of iconic The Ritz London.

Over the years within London's 5-star hotel world such as Le Meridien and the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane, she honed her ability to turn her clients' dreams into unforgettable experiences. Whether orchestrating a grand event or an intimate garden soiree, Emma’s passion for detail creates a rich tapestry of moments that resonate with elegance and joy.

Emma's expansive career is a narrative of prestige and innovation. From coordinating private dining and events at The Ritz London to managing a regal Royal Versailles Ball at the Palace of Versailles, her resume speaks volumes of her capabilities and her flair for the extraordinary. Her roles have been diverse, ranging from Social Events Executive Planner to Sales Manager, always pushing the envelope of what is possible within the luxury and high-end event planning sphere.

This dedication to crafting sensory delight has not gone unnoticed, as Emma was the proud recipient of the Bridelux 'Planner Rising Star' Award in 2022.

But beyond her role as an extraordinary luxury event planner, Emma is also a cherished Associate Lecturer at The Event School London. Here, she transcends the traditional role of a lecturer, offering students a wealth of practical experiences. Her altruistic spirit shines through as she facilitates site tours, shadowing opportunities, volunteering, and work placements, not only personally but also by leveraging her vast industry connections.

Emma’s impact on her students and the industry is not just local; it's global. With a rich international background spanning the UK, Spain, and Hong Hong, she is a polyglot with fluency in Spanish and high-level Mandarin. Emma seamlessly weaves diverse cultural strands into the fabric of every event she designs, regardless of geographic boundaries.

Beyond the hustle of event planning, Emma’s personal life is filled with zest. A food enthusiast, she has a penchant for Asian cuisine, which is a reflection of her cultural experiences and travels. Her home life is just as full and joyful, shared with her six beloved dogs, embodying the warmth and love she pours into every aspect of her life.

The Event School London is proud to honor Emma Murray-Jones. She is not just an Associate Lecturer or an event planner; she is a mentor and an inspiration to all who aspire to leave a mark in the world of event planning.

Congratulations, Emma, for your Award for Excellence - Industry Engagement. Here's to the many more achievements that await you!
