DIRECTOR + EVENT CREATIVE
Hi, I'm Tash Hardy, and I'm in the business of creating experiences. Super organised, I love to bend the rules and take event experience to the next level.
I'm meticulous in logistical planning, operations management and professional service delivery; and often sought for high-level state and national events with a number of complexities.
Over the years, I have been instrumental in delivering event services across some of the biggest events Australia wide, including Project Management and touring services for Brisbane Festival, Conference Management for the Institute of Public Administration National Conference, Event Director for Myriad, Event Producer Services for Maroon Festival, and Event Direction for the award winning Ord Valley Muster.
I have trained in Stakeholder Management Practices, which gives me a unique understanding of fundamental principles of effective stakeholder engagement. Let me hlep you identify and manage key stakeholders and;
- analyse their needs and interests;
- utilise effective techniques for engaging with stakeholders;
- and practice effective facilitation and conflict management.
OUTGOING + EXPERIENCED
The Hardy+Ko extended team has been designing and delivering remarkable events and rewarding experiences for many years, right across the nation.
Our combined experience across events, marketing and stakeholder relations enables us to create events and experiences that deliver meaningful and measurable return on investment.
We take our events seriously, but we always ensure we have fun!
BENEFITS OF ENGAGING A FREELANCER
Event freelancers are flexible. We have to be. When you need us, we turn up. When you don’t, we don’t. No frills, no fuss, that’s just how it is. No salaries, no bonuses. We are engaged for the period that you need us. We don't have the same overhead and employee costs as competitor agencies, which enables us to be cost efficient and dedicated to your event. Research indicates we tend to be more dedicated in delivering results and more effective with time as its a reflection of their personal reputation and brand.
Planning an event for the most part can be done from anywhere, which has its advantages and means that if you need us to travel, and organise events worldwide we are on our way! All we need is our laptop and smartphone and we can work from any location - which means we are happy to commute and travel to get the work done.
As a freelance agency, Hardy+Ko have built a strong portfolio, a network of incredible suppliers. We love to share the recognition we receive from our client's as well as from client's of larger event agencies where we have been engaged on their behalf to deliver event services. This is what they have to say about us here.
