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”.

Lauren
Horton

Event Operations

Planning everything from tropical film shoots in Thailand to international conferences in Andorra sparked Lauren’s interest in event production and eventually led her to complete an MA in Event Management. In her free time, you can find Lauren with a book in her hand and a batch of chocolate chip cookies in the oven…either that or daydreaming about adopting a french bulldog.

Maggie
Pancheva

Event Communications

Maggie graduated with an MA in English Literature, but she is by no means limited to words – her experience working in fashion and music projects gave her fantastic insight into what effective event communication can achieve. On the weekends, Maggie switches gears and lets her creative side shine, moonlighting as an amateur playwright and theatre director.

Michele
Bowers

Content Marketing

Michele has driven marketing and fundraising efforts in a multitude of environments, including Barcelona startups, NGOs in the US and supporting crowdfunding campaigns around the globe. This self-professed francophile swears that the key to happiness lies in a bar of chocolate and warm, fuzzy kitten snuggles.

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.

Donna
Gorova

Customer Support

Excellent communications is second nature to Donna, whose background in various market research roles naturally led her to the world of Marketing and Customer Support at Utterly. Outside of the office, Donna cracks open the cookbooks and whips up some gastronomical delights – vegetarian, of course, as she’s a passionate animal rights supporter. On a Sunday afternoon, you can find Donna stuck into a sci-fi blockbuster – or daydreaming about a trip to Machu Pichu.

Natalija
Tosheva

Event Support

Following an extensive education in economics, Natalija’s interests led her to explore what’s possible in the world of marketing and events. Her logical skillset and natural flair for perfectionism lends itself perfectly to her analytical and detailed-oriented role. When’s she’s not knee-deep trawling the web for the latest blockchain and cryptocurrency news, Natalija spends her free time letting her musical side shine by playing the violin and singing in a local choir. Angelic.
