Our Philosophy

Three words embody the philosophy and operating ethos of The Guernsey Event Company.

Excellence

Our strategic event management and organisation brings a focus to the communication needs of private sector companies, government departments and voluntary sector organisations that reflect their promotional priorities commercially, for their community or for the cause.

Commitment

Our planning and execution of any event, irrespective of size, embraces innovation in approach, creativity in concept, detailed operational delivery and audited budget control. These components are not mutually exclusive; they are mutually supportive to ensure that we meet the client’s objectives of originality, impact and financial security.

Results

The Guernsey Event Company is committed to an ongoing and open dialogue with clients. The success of any event is built upon a developed understanding of the client and the client’s objectives, a clearly defined relationship from conception to conclusion and the highest standards of delivery.

Our Team

Alex Bridle

Founder and Managing Director

Alex has worked in the hospitality and event management industries for nearly 30 years with a career that has included senior managerial positions at Shangri-La Hotel Singapore, Grosvenor House Hotel London and Ballymore Leisure (London based group of bars, restaurants and night clubs). Prior to joining the world of 24/7 hospitality and event organisation, Alex was Marketing & Promotions Manager for publisher Newsweek International based in London and Hong Kong and then Time magazine in Hong Kong.

Alex’s introduction to event organisation began in 1987 with the unprecedented overland charity expedition “The Cape to Cape” where a 20 year old Dennis fire engine travelled 22,000 miles from Cape North on the Arctic Circle to Cape Agulhas, the southern-most tip of Africa in aid of The Samaritans. Organised and executed by a team of individuals, the majority of whom were under 25, all of whom had full time jobs, The Cape to Cape raised in excess of £250,000 for The Samaritans.

Natalie Davidson

Head of Events

Natalie has worked in event management for nearly 25 years with valuable experience in both London and Guernsey. Natalie has honed her event management skills with specific experience in three different industries: classical artist management company where she worked in the orchestral touring department organising tours across the world, including taking the first Western orchestra to China; the Prince’s Trust and Royal British Legion organising events; and a publishing company organising conferences and seminars for the company’s magazines and their associated award ceremonies.

Natalie is no stranger to events that are planned and delivered on a regional and world stage with a major highlight being an international finance charity dinner held in London attended by over 1,200 guests which raised £1.2 million pounds in just 30 minutes: the event was and remains the biggest corporate fund raiser for the charity.

Harriet Ogier

Event Co-ordinator

Harriet joined the team in April 2018 after working as a Digital Marketing Executive at Healthxchange. Harriet graduated in 2017 with a degree in English Language and Linguistics from the University of St Mark and St John in Plymouth. It was here that she found an interest in how social media is used to communicate.

Harriet worked as an intern for the University Marketing Department and headed a recruitment campaign for a new student role. Harriet now works on design and social media projects to work alongside events at the Guernsey Event Company as well as assisting the team in running events.
