Philippa Hallam
Event Manager at Olympia London.

“My favourite memory of Lincoln Minster School was being part of a team trekking across Borneo in 2007.

“Teachers supporting my decision not to attend university straight after school helped me to get to where I am today. I made the decision to go to university a couple of years later without the pressure.

“I am currently working as Event Manager at Olympia London and I plan to develop my knowledge and experience within the events industry.

“My advice to current students is that university isn’t for everyone. There are plenty of opportunities out there, you just need to try different things and gain experience to understand yourself more and what you want to achieve in your future career.”
