Aleysha

Venue Partnership Manager

Venue Partnership Manager, Aleysha operates as the lead point of contact and trusted advisor for our ever expanding list of venues. A vivacious character partial to belting a tune, it’s hardly a surprise her dream event is a celeb wedding!

Jason

Technician

With a background in music production and audio engineering, Driver Jason’s superpower of choice would be to run as fast as Flash, which could come in handy in a London traffic jam! When he’s not busy prepping kit for distribution, you’ll find him at the cinema, playing soccer or surfing.

Jacob

Production Manager

Production Manager Jacob really enjoys the initial planning of a project, conceptualising new ways to deliver ideas. He likes inventing, tinkering and going on adventures. His dream event hasn’t been conceived yet, but lasers and holograms and electromagnets will be involved.

John

Justin

Production Director

Production Director Justin realised during his Economics degree that playing with lights in the student union was far more intriguing than interest rates. His forte is keeping cool under pressure, there’s just one thing he needs to make it all happen: coffee.

Martin

Creative Director

Rob

Operations Manager

Before joining Broadsword, Rob studied Music Technology at university. As Operations Manager, every day is different, but when he’s not busy dealing with event logistics you’ll find him rustling up something in the kitchen with Lionel Richie warbling in the background.

Sam

Senior Technician

You’ll find Technician Sam’s friendly face and expert skill set pop up all over the place, as he installs and operates Broadsword’s equipment. Before entering the live event world, he once thought about training as a fireman – not just because of the name!

Stuart

Production Manager

Peanut butter M&M’s and his Spotify playlist keep Production Manager Stuart on the go. Being technically minded, he likes coming up with creative solutions for stage sets. His dream event? As an aspiring e-sport player it has to be a Sony Keynote at E3.
