Hello, I’m Raimonda Richardson, the driving force behind FORCE4 EVENTS.
With a career spanning over 12 years in corporate event management, communications and promotions I’ve worked with companies of different sizes and budgets.
Planning how to launch products and services through events with a specific focus on content creation, audience growth and revenue potential is what I am most passionate about.
This little graphic sums me right up…
In 2016, I took the decision to step aside from a highly enjoyable, but rather stressful managerial position to spend more time with my young family. After years of studying and climbing the career ladder it was not an easy decision to have come to.
However, I could not rest my career-driven mind for long and I’ve set up as a freelance marketing manager in early 2018.
FORCE 4 EVENTS was born in June 2019 when I realised I could not ignore my pull to get back into events any longer.
I now help businesses large and small to plan, review and deliver events, courses and programmes to larger audiences and bring repeat revenue for their business.
Career highlight: A tour of ITV Studios and meeting the lovely Lorraine while setting up Topcon’s equipment for ‘the effects of summer sun on your eyes’ series due to be aired on Good Morning Britain.
Amongst dozens of regional events I have led strategic marketing campaigns for national meetings at venues such as the NEC in Birmingham, ICC in Liverpool and London Olympia.
As the promotions manager, my role would span from ideas generation and project planning to visual company representation materials during the events, as well as directing highlight videos and leading post event follow up activities.
If its a simple flyer to showcase your latest products, invitation to an event, seasonal greeting or a thank you card. I can help with copy and design to ensure your business stands out.
Available electronically and in easily printable format for those all important face to face meetings.
For a more design intensive look, I work with a handful of trusted, local graphic designers, so between me and my contacts, we will be able to help.
As a freelance marketing specialist, I can be an extension of your marketing team, offering a helping hand during the busy periods or someone who will manage all your day-to-day marketing activities from ideas generation, planning to implementation. YOU DECIDE.
My expertise in multi-media marketing and communications with a large focus on events means, that I offer a unique fusion of ideas, techniques and skills to each project I work on.
I’ve called FORCE4 EVENTS an agency because to run events successfully you need a team of people behind you. I therefore work closely with graphic designers, photographers, audio visual suppliers and merchandise specialists to deliver truly memorable events.
I’ve ran conferences with over 300 delegates, intimate peer group dinners of 80 and seminars from 20 to 50 delegates.
I’ve also worked on exhibiting projects, helping companies make an impact at trade shows. Project managing small 3x3m stands to 300sqm stand spaces, I’ve worked at Birmingham NEC, London Olympia, Manchester Central and many more national venues.
For the past 10 years I have worked in the corporate environment within marketing teams and more recently managed marketing departments, and in turn have profound experience in brand development, direct marketing (online and off) and events marketing.
