We’d like to introduce you to James Eaton, our AV Technician.
We took time out to chat to James about his time at CentrEd.
Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I studied a degree in sound engineering at Rose Bruford college and I used to be a theatre technician working on exciting touring shows like Derren Brown and Parrilla, but I fancied a change. I then worked for Eclipse Presentations working for Central Hall and Marriott Grosvenor Square, which focused on creative technical event production. CentrEd appealed to me as I love being the dedicated AV technician and it’s amazing to be a small part of the bigger picture.
Tell us about your role at CentrEd:
My role in centred is AV technician. I set up all the audio-visual needs for our clients. I am always here to help and find solutions to any problems that arise. You’re likely to find me tinkering with wires and adapters in the meetings room!
What inspired you to work in events and why do you enjoy the events industry?
Having done a course in sound engineering, the events industry was a great fit for me. I loved working in theatre and my passions for events began from there. Being part of CentrEd is great as I get to work with a dedicated team and can really help our clients, plus every day is different and that really appealed to me.
What do you like most about your role?
I enjoy working with clients to ensure their events run smoothly and generally being there to keep them at ease.
Tell us something interesting about yourself!
I've actually done a stage pyro course!
