We are Utterly

We believe that people are utterly essential in business. We’re a highly personable team who enable highly personal interactions and we bring a fresh perspective to a future-focussed and forward-thinking industry. We push boundaries, we assess the risk, and we please the client every time.

Emily
Holgate

Founder

Emily founded Utterly Events when she realised her hobby was turning into a second profession. With a background in corporates and startups, her focus is everything in between as she concentrates on supporting scale-up businesses and founders across Europe and the US. When she’s not busy hosting events, she’s scaling limestone crags in the foothills of the Pyrenees or relaxing with a perfectly-brewed “cuppa”.

Ben
Stallworthy

Event Marketing

Ben’s career in marketing has seen him work for charities, startups and as a freelancer, and this diversity was the perfect route into the varied world of events! During his downtime, you’ll find Ben pounding the streets of Barcelona, hanging out with Perla the dog or enduring his long-suffering relationship with Ipswich Town Football Club.

Paola
Torre Bru

Event Management Intern

Paola is finishing up her Master’s studies in Food and Beverage Management, after graduating in Hospitality Management. She is from Mexico, has lived in Italy during her studies and now she’s doing an internship in Barcelona with Utterly Events, so these foreign experiences combine perfectly with her love for travel. She has experience working in marketing for a major coffee brand, and coffee is her second love after travel. She enjoys winding down with comedy podcasts and amazing food in her free time.

Robert
Albornoz

Digital Marketing

With a Master’s Degree in International Business, it’s no surprise this self-professed entrepreneur has found himself at the helm of Utterly’s Digital Marketing. Robert’s worked with established businesses and advised startups with their marketing strategy for over 7 years, so ending up in Utterly’s founder-focused world was a no-brainer. After work, Robert dedicates his time to his second passion, music – from making his own sweet melodies, to rocking out at local gigs or hunting down old EPs.

Natalija
Tosheva

Event Support

Natalija has a wide set of knowledge in Economics, and after obtaining her Master’s Degree in Finance, she was eager to explore what’s possible in the world of marketing and events. Her attention to detail and perfectionism are perfectly in line with her analytical role. She is in charge of keeping our CRM database spotless, while also working on Lead Generation and Client communication. In her free time, she loves long- distance running and hitting the gym. Music, from playing the violin to techno and rock is her passion, along with healthy food and travel adventures.

Marija
Mishevska

Event Development Support

With an educational background in Law, and work experience in Data Analysis and Market Research, Marija is putting her analytical skills to work doing mostly Lead Generation and CRM Management. She has experience with Creative Writing and Email Marketing Campaigns as well, so it’s fair to say that she has many strings to her bow! Away from work, Marija likes nothing more than getting stuck into a good book, working out, meditating or whipping up a culinary delight in the kitchen.

Jazmine
Watkins

Event Partnerships Manager

Jazmine has a wide range of education and knowledge in psychology and communications, and she is making sure our Partner Relationships are running smoothly on a daily basis. She was born in Illinois, but considers Austin, Texas, where she grew up to be her hometown. Jaz has lived in Thailand and Malaga, Spain where she taught English, then she moved to Barcelona, which has always been her dream. Outside of work, she enjoys working on her upcoming Sci- Fi novel, watching Netflix shows or exploring the vegetarian food options in Barcelona.

Leticia
Rivero

Event Operations Manager

Leticia was born and raised in Barcelona but her passion for traveling has taken her to live in remote places like Montana and Myanmar! Prior to Utterly, she lived in London for 3 years, where she worked as an Event Manager for a Media Company while doing a master’s degree in International Marketing. Restless, curious and always looking for new challenges, Leti always opts for any activity that involves being in contact with nature. During her free time, you can find her planning the next adventure around the globe and looking for new restaurants and exhibitions to go, but also chilling at home watching documentaries on Netflix.
