WP Event Management was established by Ellie Holmes in 2009 offering a professional relationship between client and service. The business mainly involves facilitating and managing medical educational meetings and events as well as working with Healthcare Teams within Primary, Secondary and Community Care.
Ellie qualified as a RGN in 1998 and worked at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and York Hospital specializing in Ear Nose & Throat and Maxillofacial Surgery. Although she loved Head & Neck nursing and thoroughly enjoyed her nursing career she was keen to spend more time with her two young children. An opportunity to work from home arose and Ellie spent 4 years working within the financial industry. Although this enhanced her education further it also provided her with a platform to look at new opportunities, and in 2009 Ellie left the financial industry and created WP Event Management. The business has allowed Ellie to work alongside Healthcare Professionals again – which was something she missed – but also allowed her to be creative and run a business exactly how she would like to. In 2014 WP Event Management became a limited company.
WP Event Management aims to offer a professional seamless service however large or small the demand. In her approach Ellie is flexible, honest, reliable and cost effective. It is worth noting that Ellie also works with the pharmaceutical industry and major private healthcare companies who frequently support much of the training and education provided – very often resulting in a free service to the client.
In 2010 Ellie created WP Education – A natural progression from WP Event Management. Regular educational meetings are held for Healthcare Professionals across North Yorkshire, delivered – as requested – to Federations, Collaborations and Organisations. Over the past couple of years Ellie has become involved with Healthcare organisations across the North East of England and in the Humber & E Ridings.
Late 2010 Ellie also developed WP Training. Chris Davies from YOR Training offers various mandatory and statutory training including BLS (Child and Adult), Anaphylaxis, First Aid and Fire Awareness. He has worked with many practices alongside Ellie and always receives fantastic feedback.
In 2012 WP Event Management welcomed Emily Kyle to assist Ellie with the growth of the business in new localities.
Emily started her working life in 1998. Having qualified as a Nursery Nurse she worked for the Education Department before moving over to work for Social Services within the Children and Family Centre. This involved close work with MDT’s, management and most importantly her client. Emily has lived and worked in Middlesborough, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dublin and is now settled in York. As well as working alongside Ellie at WP Event Management, Emily is also a director of Apothem IR Consultants.
