Alexa ScottFounder and CEO
Worked in advertising and events for several years and in 2011 founded ‘SEM Events’. I always knew that I wanted to create a fun environment where the staff wanted to come to work. Our SEM HQ office is such a great place, never a dull moment and our team get on so well. We strive to be different and have a simple, but strong vision - it’s an exciting time for us.
Colin DochertyAccounts Manager
As the youngest (lol) member of the team I am well looked after. I’ve been with the SEM Events team for a few years and what an organisation it is. We are always looking at new ways to make things better for our customers, from booking, through to the event experience itself. Smashing bunch of people all working hard to make things happen. Away from work I enjoy peace and quiet with a nice cold beer – and relax.
Caitlin BrownEvents Co-ordinator
I came to work for SEM Events when I finished Uni and I love it! I studied Event Management so working for one of the largest Event Management companies in Scotland was an amazing next step. SEM Events is innovative and dynamic and I just love the events we organise, especially the wedding exhibitions. Working at the events is exciting but we have a great time day to day in the office. When I'm not at work you'll find me spending time with family, friends, and of course my puppy, Max!
Joely McSkimmingEvent Sales
SEM Event's is a FAB company to work for. I work with a great team of people and have met and established relationships with many people over the time I have worked here. I am currently going off on maternity leave soon (scary stuff!) and I can't wait to return to work and see the MASSIVE changes made to this amazing business. This company is bound for greatness! #disruptivewithourevents
Andrew ReithSales & Marketing Manager
I have a strong passion for sport, travel and events and I'm highly competitive. Whether it be in the office or on the golf course I always try to be at my best in every environment. I enjoy engaging with people daily and always ensure I leave them happy. My favourite seasonal location would be winter in Salzburg. SEM Events are without doubt the best events company in Scotland because we all enjoy what we do.
Priscilla BreaksBookings and Event Support
SEM Events is a fun and vibrant place to work. It has the best team of people who are all committed to creating innovative and exciting events. Although I have a finance and project management background I love working in the events industry and have done so for the last four years. For me, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing the event we’ve planned on paper, come to life, run successfully and meet its objectives! Aside from events, I love music, travel and spending quality time with friends and family.
As the newest member of SEM Events I have received such a warm welcome! The whole team are so motivated and enthusiastic it makes for a really good working environment in the office. I can’t wait to see these events that we work so hard on come to life! In my spare time I enjoy travelling and spending time with family & friends.

As a first-year marketing student I LOVE working with SEM events, this company is so forward thinking and has the most amazing atmosphere and working relationships! As well as my studies, I spend a lot of time socialising with friends and exploring my new home at the University of Stirling.
Craig GillespieGraphic Designer
I have been a graphic designer for over 15 years after graduating from Edinburgh College of Art. In that time I’ve developed an in-depth understanding of branding, with a keen eye for consistency and detail in typography and language. If not working in the studio, I’m most likely to be found up a hill on his mountain bike or spending time with my 2 sons. SEM has so many events and we get the opportunity to create and design new brands from scratch, what more can I ask for.
Craig BeckWebsite Designer
I’ve been building SEM websites for over 13 years now and have lost count of how many we’ve actually produced. What I love about SEM is they organise such a diverse range of events that each website I design has it’s own unique features, requirements and challenges. Here’s to the next 13 years...
