My name is John Kershaw and I am an event delivery specialist. Whether you need an account director, a project director, a senior producer, or a blend of skills, I work with your clients as their point of call and manage a team to deliver their events.
I can take a brief, turn it into an experience and lead it through to delivery or deliver an already-scoped concept. I’m happy to work as part of your team, or assemble one from a proven pool of expertise.
I have 20 years’ event delivery experience working for many of the world’s best known brands in social media, alcohol, retail, sport, leisure, financial, automotive, consumer tech, FMCG and telecoms.
The early part of my career focused on production management of the full range of live events from boardroom meetings to conferences and exhibitions for thousands of delegates.
When brands started to see the value of experiential and putting significant budget into that category, I worked with some the early agency adopters of this style of event to develop engagement strategies and it is now in this form of event delivery that I specialise.
I strongly believe any type of live event should have an experiential aspect that truly engages your audience.
Working across the world in Europe, USA and the Middle East I have overcome many challenges that those different markets present –whether it be an outdoor presentation at minus 35 degrees in the Artic Circle or air-conditioning a stadium with a retractable roof in 40 degrees heat in Qatar, I approach each project with enthusiasm and professionalism to ensure expectations are exceeded.
I work for production, PR and marketing agencies as a crucial addition to their client teams. In addition I offer full production agency services to end clients as an extension to their in-house teams to deliver events.
Thanks for visiting my site, I hope you like what you see. If you have a brief and would like to discuss it, contact me and let’s see how we can bring it to life.
