Katie Tomsett FS

Professional profile

Katie brings to CORE over 6 years of event experience in the educational and not-for-profit sector. Katie has worked on a large variety of events from building openings, corporate dinners, strategy launches, expos, through to large scale information days, including university open days. Equally comfortable working on smaller bespoke functions through to events with attendance of 4,500 people, Katie has both an eye for detail and the ability to see the overall strategic vision of the event.

Katie has also spent time helping train and guide smaller not-for-profit societies through both the event planning process, and assisting them with funding applications and fundraising opportunities.

In her previous role, Katie was part of the team that was a finalist for the NZEA Best Community Event Award 2019.

Personal statement

I am passionate about seeing people grow and develop into world changers by doing the ordinary things extraordinarily well. I enjoy facilitating a great attendee experience and ensuring people have the opportunity to focus on the things that really matter. When not working, I am likely to be testing the attendee experience at my local rugby match!
