Ambassador and Events Manager
Harriett grew up in Wiltshire, where Game shooting and attending equestrian events were a big part of her life. They are still sports which she holds close to her heart, but sadly since moving to London two years ago, they haven’t been too readily available.
Harriett has been in the event world for over 15 years, much of her experience has been with large scale, outdoor live events, which relied heavily on teams of volunteers.
In her spare time, she volunteers in a Mary’s Living and Giving shop for Save the Children, in the local village. She also has a rescue dog, who needed a loving home, and they go on long walks together. He thoroughly enjoys the countryside when she’s home in Wiltshire and has become part of ‘the all black’ pack with her father’s working gundogs.
During Lockdown, Harriett tried Yoga for the first time, and it fast became part of her daily ritual. Further to this, she’s an enthusiastic cook and sometimes there’s a successful meal at the end of it.
