Dianne Leach - France Events Manager

When not working I can be found either in Sussex walking on the South Downs, or trying something new (golf being the latest activity of choice).

During the winter months I’ll more than likely be in the French Alps partaking in some silly winter sport!

Greatest achievement to date has been successfully project managing the design and construction of our ski chalet in the French Alps.

I have worked on both small and large scale events including a total of 18 Olympic and Paralympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies. I have 20 years of events experience involving many aspects of production across all departments, including event proposals, logistics, project management, cast, company and stage management. I also have wide experience in technical and project administration and coordination including team management, budget management and scheduling. Prior to joining the events world, I worked for 10 years in the West End of London as casting administrator on several prestigious productions for Cameron Mackintosh and Bill Kenwright.

I’m honoured to be able to get involved, even just a little bit, with the Ellie Soutter Foundation to help organise some of their fundraising events. It’s so important that the mental wellbeing of young athletes entering the world of elite sports is addressed. The Foundation is doing so much to raise and maintain awareness and, with the help of the fundraising events and kind donations, is also able to financially support several young athletes. I’m happy to be a part of the team.

We really need your help
