Owen McIlreavy developed an interest for live events while studying at Midleton College in his native Cork, Ireland. The motto of the College, ‘Spartam nactus es, hanc exorna’ (‘You were born with talents, develop them’) certainly rings true for this live events professional, who, during his brief time in the industry, has already spent the past few years plying his trade as a Technical Stage Manager at University of Derby’s Union of Students as well as a post as Summer Staff at IPS – a role which saw him go on to win TPi Breakthrough Talent Awards Undergraduate of the Year at Production Futures 2019. Having recently secured a full-time job at IPS, he sat down with TPi to reflect on the breakthrough year.
