My suggestions for Confex and TFM&A seminars

For this year Confex and TFM&A I have decided that these are the seminars I’m interest to attend and I recommend. And during the day I’ll try to attend to as many as possible. As I said in my twitter account it looks like I’ll be living at Earl’s Court this week.

Kseniya Simonova – a Sand Illustrator – Amazing February 9, 2010

As a present for my graduation I got this amazing video showing how Kseniya Simonova an Ukrainian artist won the Ukraine’s Got Talent competition last year.

It’s simply AMAZING and make you even cry, to see how talent she is. Make me think how beautiful her live most be to be able to represent such beautiful moments in live.




Last Monday 1st of February the day finally arrived and I could celebrate that I was graduating for my MA in Events and Exhibition Management at Birmingham City University (BCU).

It was a very important day for me, even that I had to wait a year after I finished my dissertation for the ceremony (when the FT students finished was too late for being at the ceremony in 2009), but that made that most of the people who started the MA in 2007 we could graduated together. Besides that, my mom could come from Colombia for this great moment, and finally someone from my family could see my other life, the life that I have here as foreign in England. Plus the person who made possible that we could have the best MA ever and put together all those amazing 14 future Events Managers could come and see us graduated. Thank you very much Mathilde Stein for teaching us so much and also be a mentor for us in our future as event professionals.

Here is a picture of us, already as Masters in events.

With the start of the New Year, I decided that it was time that I should have my new business card. I used to have one that said that I’m an Industrial Designer, is not that I’m not anymore, once you are designer you can’t stop being one. But now I’m also an Event Manager.

I want to thank Juan Morris from Emmersi for this great design.
