Lydia Smith

Project Controller

I graduated from Bournemouth University with a First-Class Honours degree in Event Management in 2017. Following University, I began my career in Event Management managing multiple social and corporate events for global clients. In 2019 I travelled South America and more recently I lived and worked in Australia for two and a half years. Whilst in Australia I volunteered for the charity Blaze Aid, where I rebuilt cattle fences for bushfire effected communities and volunteered as part of the covid-19 vaccination rollout. I continued my career working in the Agricultural Industry as a Claims Specialist, as well as working on different projects completing a range of administration roles.

Person I most admire:
I most admire the bravery of the suffragette movement in the early 20th Century who fought for a woman’s right to vote. I particularly admire the founder Emmeline Pankhurst and the suffragette Emily Davison for their courageousness and success in capturing the attention of the world, at a time where connecting people was not as easy as it is today.
