About Me

    Tom Simmonds - The Event Fixer

    Freelance Event Manager

    I love being a freelance event manager! I get to take a thought, a minimal concept of a potentially amazing day and develop that potential into a reality, a truly stunning event to make the occasion an unforgettable experience. I get to do that every day!

    A recent example was for a London client whose partner had a birthday coming up. She is from the Netherlands and so the event incorporated meeting in a private room located in a funky Dutch bar where, to her delight, she was surprised by friends and family from her homeland. A fantastic evening was had by all with a second venue offering the full knock out treatment. The planning, venue sourcing, all behind the scenes with flights, accommodation and transport all laid on for the guests, meant the client could enjoy the evening alongside his partner.

    “Wow Tom what a great night…..really impressed with the attention to detail and your dedication. Loved the personalised cupcakes and coloured theming, so many other little touches I wouldn’t have thought of and all that running around you did….wonderful… truly”

    Testimonials

    From the horse's mouth

    “For our April gathering, Freeman Tom Simmonds arranged an excellent evening of English wines paired with cheeses sourced from local suppliers at Borough Market. We were also given the opportunity to sample gin distilled in the City itself – a perfect match for our spirited entrepreneurs. It was great to see so many of our Freeman and their guests in attendance and thanks must go to Tom for putting his event organising expertise into practice on behalf of the Guild.”

    Alex Webster (Style Director) | Fruitful Events

    We had such an amazing wedding day, and we are so grateful to you for making it happen for us. I was so pleased with how it all went, and being a bit of a control freak, it was just amazing to me that when we got to the Reception, everything was ready to go, IT WAS BRILL. You were so on top of the drinks, canapés, cake, coffee and the bar all night.

    Thank you so much for everything you did to make it work, and for all your advice before the day and thank you for liaising with the casters, the band, etc. to make everything work together.

    Thanks also for accommodating my Auntie Helen who didn’t RSVP – What a surprise that was!
