After graduating in Film & Media Studies in 2003, Joanne fell into the event industry by chance. Sixteen years on, she has been managing events both client and agency side [in Edinburgh and London] for many private and public sector clients & organisations. Joanne has been part of the TEDxGlasgow leadership team for 6 years and is a Marketing Society mentor. She loves all things social and creative. And gin.
Zoe joined Lux in February 2013 and comes from a strong accountancy and business background. After college and university – and in between having 5 kids – Zoe worked for Lloyds, Phoenix Trading and was involved with Changeworks and The Real Nappy Project events. Her interests include environmental, ethical living and Erin Condren planners. Oh, and she loves working with numbers.
Louise worked with Lux back in 2013 as our Events Assistant. She left us to study and work in the US before returning to Edinburgh to graduate in Festival, Events & Marketing Management. Louise has worked with a variety of different companies such as Underbelly, Ambassador Theatre Group & Royal Botanic Gardens. She loves travelling, cocktails and documentaries.
Joanna joins us with four years events industry experience. After graduating with an event management degree, she soon learned she was well suited to this organising business – as her mum had always said she would be! Moving to Scotland Joanna has found a passion for Scottish gin and the occasional munro, but returns as much as possible to her hometown Whitstable.
Erin joined Lux in Feb 2018 on a paid internship and she is so good we couldn’t let her go! She is finishing her degree in Sports Science at the University of Edinburgh but a passion for events brought her our way. Erin supports the team across all our events and as well as a great creative streak, she is as super fast at admin as she is at running and sports!
Melissa is our newbie who joined us in February 2020, with two years experience in marketing and communications. Her previous roles were at Holyrood Communications and the Ghillie Dhu before graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Festival and Event Management with Human Resource Management in 2017. Melissa has a strong passion for events, technology and the gaming industry in particular!
Nastassia joined Lux in January 2020 as our new Comms & Society Media Manager. With Italian and Arabic origins, she moved to Edinburgh 4 years ago for her MSc in Digital marketing, and soon she decided this was the city for her! Worked for companies in Italy, Scotland & France – she loves words and learn about people. Her mantra is: every day is a good day to learn a new Scottish word.
In seven years of organising events for the Foundation and the White House, your team are the best I have EVER worked with!
A belated thank you for all your help to make our event such a huge success and in the very safe and capable hands of the Lux team! We appreciate it and look forward to working with you again in the future.
Our event day is always a huge success and much of this is because of how well Lux understand our objectives. The feedback we get is an endorsement to their intricate planning & execution.
