I began working for Swiss Music Export in 2013, advising and promoting Swiss artists in business expansion and planning events at international music festivals including The Great Escape. This was the first time I had attended a showcase festival and was bowled over by the array of new artists which I am really passionate about. When I moved to London a year later I saw a job advertised at TGE and immediately applied. In 2015 I joined The Great Escape team as bookings assistant and was quickly promoted to the role of Event Executive in 2016 where I manage all of The Great Escape's international and UK based trade partnerships including PRS For Music, Sounds Australia, CIMA and AIM. For the coming year, which is TGE's 15th anniversary, I'll be also covering maternity leave as Event Manager.
