Meet the team

Blue Monday have spent forever and a day developing inspirational event concepts and client relationships that only come through the personal service we provide and having that genuine desire to go the extra mile.

Upon receiving a brief, we head straight to the concept cave and get our thinking caps on with you and your end goal in mind. Meet the people that will be working on your behalf…


The Leader

After many years working both on and off stage in theatre, Rory realised that his passion for the ‘Show’ was what motivated him. He then spent the next 10 years working in the temporary structure business, working on some of the biggest and most prestigious events the World over. In 2003 Rory decided it was time to go it alone and use his talents to deliver complete projects for clients and that was when Blue Monday was born.


The Backbone

Very much the backbone of the company, Philippa keeps us all in check and makes sure we are all where we should be at the right time. Her impeccable administration skills and disarming personality keep the office running like a well-oiled machine and the invoices getting paid on time. She’s a driving force for the company whilst the rest of us are out running events. Oh and don’t mess – she’s a kickboxer.


The Systems Queen

Nancy owned her own catering company for 10 years, catering for the likes of the Prince of Wales and Sir John Peace, before selling it on to pursue a career in business operations . She creates our systems and processes in the office so we can be efficient and effective. She’s the nuts and bolts that keep the machine running smoothly so we can deliver the best for our clients.



The Fireball

Having been with the company for over 11 years, Wendy is no stranger to the way we roll. Over the years she has worked on and run some of the biggest events that Blue Monday have been involved with. Her exceptional skills in client handling and management of a team have proved invaluable again and again. Her sense of humour keeps us all motivated, even at our busiest periods. We would be totally lost without her!


The Baby

Lottie first worked an event for Blue Monday when she was just 16 years old, hence the nickname ‘Baby’. But don’t let the nickname fool you, she means business. Her tenacity and dedication makes her a great events manager and she’s our go-to-girl anytime we need an extra helping hand. In between her Blue Monday stints she studies Geography at Nottingham Trent University and has spent time abroad doing volunteer work in Africa.



The Trooper

Alice knew very early on where her passions lay and got herself a degree in Events Management at Leeds Metropolitan University. She has refined her skills working in various areas of the industry, including top hotels, London’s prestigious ExCel Arena and arranging bespoke client experiences throughout the UK. Her enthusiasm and ‘nothing’s too much trouble’ work ethos makes her an invaluable member of the team who is admired by colleagues and clients alike.


The Planner

Our newest member Lauren graduated from Birmingham University in 2014 with a degree in Events Management and Media Communications. Lauren knew the creative industry was for her after a year of working across the Midlands arranging a multitude of events. Lauren has travelled extensively, exploring Australia, Indonesia and Thailand. She used her organisation skills to navigate her way across the globe, communicating with people from all sorts of cultures. Now home and ready to knuckle down, she’s our go-to auction girl and ready for any challenge.
