Chris Edwards

Senior Creative

After graduating from Staffordshire University I freelanced in Manchester and London, building up a portfolio of work with clients such as NHS, Manchester City Council and NGOs.
In 2011 I worked on my first live event for WRG Doha, joining the pitch and delivery team for the 20th World Petroleum Congress. With a fondness for the region, I continued to work in the Middle East for the next 5 years on award-winning events such as 40th UAE National Day, COP18 UN Climate Summit and Qasr al Hosn Festivals.

In 2014 I joined WRG  full time as a Senior Creative where I now creatively lead projects across live events, product launches, exhibitions and internal communications.
