Led by our Director Lindsey Whitehouse, the talented and friendly team at Integrity International Events are here to give you a highly personal service, ensuring you enjoy peace of mind and are free to focus on other tasks. Sometimes we may bring in other experts, depending on the needs of your event.
Lindsey founded Integrity in 1998. She built the business, developing a strong team of highly professional people, and Integrity is proud to have recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. Her 35 years’ experience encompass venue management, and international meetings management for companies such as Pfizer, Glaxo, Walter Scott, and the European Society of Coloproctology.
She led the operations team for the opening of the Edinburgh International Conference Centre in 1994-7 and began her working life in conference management within major UK conference hotels.
Her experience manifests in negotiating the best possible terms to yield bottom-line benefits for client budgets, and in her drive and passion for delivering immaculate events.
Kate returns to Integrity after a decade of working both in-house and for agencies on international clients. Integrity’s values were always close to her heart so she jumped at the chance to return as a director, bringing her extensive multi sector experience and skills.
She is fanatical in her attention to detail and passionate about delivering excellent 5* customer service. Noteworthy events include The VisitScotland Winning Years Conference in 2011 and the Homecoming 2014 campaign launch, The Scottish Legal Awards, Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards, and hospitality for RBS 6 Nations and BNP Paribas Davis Cup.
With over a decade of Project Management and Event experience, Jill has worked with some of the biggest clients in the technology, energy and financial sectors. Working with clients such as EMC2, BT, Iberdrola, HSBC and Mitsubishi on high-profile client facing events Jill has had the opportunity to hone her skills in project management, customer experience and engagement.
Jill works on a number of long-standing client accounts to support the continuing development of the business.
Samantha enhances the depth of Integrity’s finance sector expertise, having previously worked for investment firm Martin Currie. With over a decade of event management experience and an in-depth understanding of marketing strategies she brings a wealth of knowledge in conferences, awards, trade shows and product launches to the Integrity team.
Rather fortunately for our international clients, Samantha loves to travel and her sense of adventure often takes her to unique locations off the beaten track.
