Tips on embracing the British outdoors: weather, eccentric British tastes for fetes and one man bands.  Keep it fun, light-hearted, but with some tips and ideas for people planning an outdoor event?

Liz Taylor has been at the forefront of the events industry for over 30 years. An entrepreneur at heart, she is an advocate for creating events that push back the boundaries of event design, technology, and presentation, but is also a pioneer in a business sector that has grown from fledgeling enterprise to a multi-billion-pound global industry.

Ambitious from the start, Liz launched her own company, Liz Taylor Associates, in 1985 and began the long road to persuading leading corporate companies that an event planner could enhance their business. She joined forces with industry colleague Dianne Lynn to form the Taylor Lynn Corporation in 1995 creating a successful team that was to last until 2008 when Liz managed an amicable partnership buy-out. That same year TLC bucked the recession by topping the £4M turnover mark.

Entertaining. Innovative. Inspiring. TLC works with top corporate and celebrity names to stage spectacular business and private events. The portfolio includes leading blue chip, sports, and media businesses.

In 2015, she gave cameras unrivalled behind-the-scenes access to some of her events, the Taylor Lynn Corporation’s (TLC) exclusive clients and her team of hand-picked suppliers, who deliver private and corporate events right across the UK and Europe. The result was the hit Channel 4 show, ‘Millionaire Party Planner’ which won the National Reality Television Award for Best Business Show. Liz also appeared on BBC Three’s ‘Working Girls’ programme, mentoring a young unemployed woman back into employment, something that she is passionate to encourage.

Liz sits on the Business and Enterprise Advisory Board at Manchester Metropolitan University Business School and is a recipient of the Manchester Evening News Business of the Year Award and a Legend of Industry Award from Variety, the Children’s Charity.

Spaces are limited and reserved for corporate or association event organisers, PAs and EAs, conference agents and PCOs.
