Colette (one L and two Ts), is fondly referred to in our team by a number of different names. The Queen of Calm; the Princess of Serene; the Duchess of Cool as a Cucumber. OK, so one of those might be a lie.

Colette is a power-organiser and the personification of efficiency. She’s also partial to a bit of sun worshipping, which we suspect may have come from spending a year in the Andalusian sun as part of her History with Modern Languages degree.

Colette’s life before TST involved assisting on a wide range of events, from her university’s 50th birthday to ensuring the smooth running of foreign dignitary visits. That must have been a big ol’ cake.

Having graduated in 2013, Colette worked on a variety of events with a cultural charity and a mobile advertising network, where she ‘got her geek on’ with a number of high-tech events in the UK, France and even the Ukraine. From university to Ukraine, Colette’s our engagement guru who likes to take on a challenge.

At The Smarty Train, Colette is involved in everything from strategic thinking for our clients, to managing creative event concepting and design. She’s passionate about keeping people engaged; from multi-channel talent attraction to strategic programme design. Colette brings her can-do attitude to every challenge, so much so that when she recently moved house we got her a key-ring with her unofficial motto… ‘there is always a way’. No, seriously, we did.

Strange but true…

Colette once represented her borough in netball at the London Youth Olympic Games. Slam dunk! Oh wait, wrong sport
