I am joined by Narmeen Kamran who is an event professional, mental health advocate, podcaster, clubhouse pro and many more things. In this episode, Narmeen shares her mental health story and how she has learnt to overcome what life throws at her. Narmeen is a strong and resilient person. Her story about her challenges with her mental health and her perspective on the past truly highlights that things do get better.
Narmeen first started in the events industry aged 16 volunteering at comic conventions. Since then she has worked in hospitality and events throughout her studies becoming an AGM at a venue shortly after university. Now with 11 years of experience, she has worked on a variety of events across the world from Olympic sporting competitions to international conferences and awards.
Mental Health, Diversity and Personal Development are Narmeen’s passions. She also acts as a strong advocate and speaker on these topics through her own personal experience and growth. Narmeen is involved with multiple industry charities to give back to the industry, most recently creating HospoMasks to raise funds as well as being a qualified Mental Health First Aider.
Since her redundancy in the pandemic, Narmeen has launched her own personal brand and started various projects. Desert Island Events is an industry podcast created, produced and hosted by Narmeen as a fun conversation highlighting the heart of the industry, the creativity. Not one to sit still, Narmeen is also running Hospo Book Club, a network centred around personal development and wellbeing
