Paula Silkman Events Manager Kings Oak

Paula Silkman

Events Manager

Running our events department since 2010, Paula has a fabulous grasp of what the customer is looking for and is the ‘go to’ person for inspiration and customer service. Having run clubs and promotions in Essex & London prior to her joining the Kings Oak, her events experience is unsurpassed. Known effectionately within the KO team as ‘Princess’ for reasons we won’t mention here, she’s definitely  Essex royalty we couldn’t be without.

Jill Allday Corporate Events Manager

Jill Allday

Corporate Events Manager

Jill’s been part of the events team since 2012 having joined us from corporate life in London City. Heading up the corporate team, Jill’s immense organisational skills ensure that the demands of corporate events are calmly dealt with no matter what the event is. Known as the ‘fittest’ of the team, Jill will be found at 6am instructing a ‘spin class’ in one of our local gyms. If she’s not in Essex, you’re find her dancing on her favourite island…. Ibiza. Enough said.

Skye Jacobs Assistant Events Manager Kings Oak

Skye Jacobs

Assistant Events Manager

Skye is the youngest member of the team but in no way does this detract from the immense events experience she brings to the KO. Having joined us in 2014 her previous positions as VIP manager and head of promotions at some of Essex’s prime night clubs, the energy and tenacity she brings to her role at the KO is exhausting to observe. If we had to describe Skye in one word we’d choose ‘Duracell’ as it encompasses her limitless energy and reliability.

Clare Brown Assistant Events Manager

Claire Dawes

Assistant Events Manager

Claire joined us in 2013 from the sponsored events department of the O2 Arena where she had exposure to a very diverse portfolio of clients. This experience has been invaluable to the KO team as her attention to detail is second to none and a definite asset to any team charged with looking after corporate events. Known as ‘the quiet one’ of the team this is a fallacy as she was a team member of launching ‘Kisstory’ in Ibiza…. and nothing is quiet there.
