Karen Williams, founder of The Event Chemist, started her career 20 years ago as an Entertainer. An outstanding vocalist and comedian, Karen’s versatility as a performer saw her appear in London’s West End, headlining on cruise ships, and hosting several of her own interactive shows.
During her time entertainment circuit, Karen uncovered a passion for events. Noting how things should (and shouldn’t!) be done, Karen soon began working in many facets of the events industry; managing roadshow events for ASP, recruiting and managing street teams for MCE, hosting training events for ESP and managing giant military balls for Langford Productions.
With both her Entertainment and Events careers rocketing, Karen took on freelance event management roles for O2, Vodafone, Innocent, Tropicana and Carphone Warehouse, just to name a few. And during this time, became a strategic partner of Ice Branding as their Entertainment Advisor.
The culmination of this experience lead Karen to create The Event Chemist. The concept of something amazing, coming from many different, and unique, elements. The Event Chemist works with large corporations, hosting events for hundreds of people, right down to small intimate weddings. Karen manages every element of the business, working with clients on the creative concept for an event, hiring and managing the entertainers, managing the project, budget and logics, and of course, the execution. She may even perform every now and then.
