Tiger Tea was created in 1999 by Linda Krawecke, a former Manager of a conference and event team in Brighton. As a Conference Manager, Linda saw many occasions when the team needed the extra support of an experienced conference organiser. Yet at the same time, she knew the implications in cost of hiring new personnel : training, salary, computer & office equipment, desk space, another phone line.It was hard to justify those costs for someone who may end up just twiddling their thumbs for the "slow months".
The idea behind Tiger Tea was to create just the kind of outsourced support she was looking for as a Conference Manager: experienced, reliable and flexible personnel who can be there to do the job when needed and then say "Goodbye, and thanks".
At the same time, long time festival attendee Linda noticed that she was looking at the way that the infrastructure of these events was being organized as much as she was watching the performances. Destiny happened! She began taking courses and instruction on the health & safety of outdoor events and NEBOSH certified, Linda looks after the H&S at several outdoor events as well as taking on site management and other responsibilities.
The NEBOSH National General Certificate is a qualification designed to help those with health and safety responsibilities, to carry out their duties at work and more effectively and to protect the organisations for which they work.
