The end result (well, partly) of my day in Southampton

An entire day on 9 June was dedicated to helping Cunard passengers and crew celebrate the tenth birthday of Queen Mary 2, a beautiful cruise liner.

Working alongside the rest of the team for FTF Worldwide Event Management, I was on duty from just after 5am to just after 10pm. Most of the day was spent looking after these guys - the band of the Royal Scots Guards. It was hard work and a long day, but worth every moment. Not only were they accomplished musicians, but fun to be around and no trouble to manage for the day.

It's amazing the diverse jobs I get involved in and immensely rewarding. I've written the press release about this event and feel I know it inside and out.
