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…

Rory

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.

Mell

The Spark

The newbie at BM HQ, Mell is our pink haired girl who loves to cook, sew and travel. Mell was based in London for over 20 years, living the fast life and spent her spare time on her sailing boat exploring the world, her favourite destination being South America. Having moved to Nottingham 2 years ago, she has fulfilled her dream of having a dog and is now enjoying the countryside and a quieter way of life. In the office, Mell keeps the accounts (and us!) in check with her keen eye for detail and years of book keeping experience.

Nancy

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.

Wendy

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!

Lottie

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.

Silent auctions

Alice

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.

Lauren

The Free From

Lauren may be intolerant to every food under the sun but one thing’s for certain, she’s not intolerant to hard work! Lauren graduated 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 and used her organisational skills to navigate her way across the globe. Now home and ready to knuckle down, she’s our go-to events and auction girl, who is ready for any challenge.

Chris

The Chatty Man

It’s a warm welcome to Chris, who is joining the BM team as our Business Development Manager. Chris has worked in framing and memorabilia for what he will tell you "feels like forever". His main passion is rugby and is constantly buying the latest signed shirt, so, if you are interested in having a Silent Auction at your event, framing up your favourite signed shirt or sourcing amazing pieces of Memorabilia, Chris is your man!
