    Claire Winter

    — Director

    My career in the business events industry started in 1986. When I work out the number of years, I can’t believe where time has gone but as they say “time flies when you’re having fun”!

    Previous to establishing Métier in 1996, I worked for two companies I consider to be the pioneers and leaders in their respective areas of expertise – spectator and activity events. I honed my operational, problem solving and “seeing around corners” skills during many a unique and exciting event and on umpteen MICE programmes in the UK and abroad.

    Having worked with an array of DMC’s for many years in my outbound days, I definitely know what needs to be delivered.

    Outside of work, I’m a regular at the gym, love being outdoors – whether sailing, hillwalking or just enjoying the many London sights on a weekend wander. Even though I’m London born and bred, this vibrant city never fails to excite or surprise me!

    Aina Snaith

     — Project Manager

    I am passionate about events. I started my events career in my home country, Spain, where I worked for a couple of companies specialising in hospitality and motor sports. The latter involved running the events department at the Navarra motor racing circuit.

    My move to the UK has seen my career progress, working in travel and IT events before joining Métier UK DMC in 2014.

    I am a real people person and you’ll always find me with a smile on my face! If I am not at work, you can most definitely find me swimming, boxing or just enjoying a movie – ideally with sweet & salty popcorn and a Vanilla coke.

    I take part in sport fundraising events and am challenging myself to learn to play the drums. My husband says that I am really great but I am afraid that my neighbours disagree!

    Joanna Irving

    — Project Manager

    Being both an organised and creative person I realised early on that working within the events industry was the right career path for me.

    Having previously worked on training and conference events in London, I am looking forward to using more of my creativity on Métier’s many varied events and progressing my career further.

    Born in Kent, I like to enjoy the best of both worlds, having both London and the beautiful Kent countryside on my doorstep. Outside of work I am most likely to be found at the gym working up a sweat during a variety of classes or enjoying a gig in one of London’s many great music venues.
