After studying performance sound, Leo went straight into his current role working with audio equipment for events. Sometimes he prepares the kit to meet client specifications for a contract or hire. Other times he takes it to the venue and runs the event himself.

His company helps with everything from weddings to big corporate events. “The biggest I’ve been involved with was a hospitality event during the recent Rugby World Cup”.

He admits that the work throws up many challenges. “As technology changes, people’s expectations change around what they want for their money, so you have to constantly adapt to their needs”.

Leo thinks it’s a great job for anyone who has good technical skills and an interest in how things work. “It’s rewarding to take someone’s idea and then turn it into something that actually happens right in front of you”.
