A bit more about Gary…

The Seventeen43 Limited business was founded by Gary Williams in September of 2015 after Gary decided to leave his senior corporate role in one of leading banks for past 25 years. Gary continues to live with his family in the beautiful countryside of Staffordshire and works with a remote support of Event Management team of helpers. Gary’s daily inspiration stems from years of volunteering to organise events in his local village to help support the community with village days, numerous charity events, sporting days out and quiz nights to mention a few…

Understanding that there was a wider community of event opportunities that would make a difference in the Staffordshire area and beyond, though the power of events, Gary loves bringing people together, creating that social able occasions and fantastic experiences. Seventeen43 Limited quickly evolved to become a formal event management company so whatever your requirements are, we can plan the perfect personalised event for you.

A word from Gary… “In a world that continues to be unsociable due to over reliance and the ease of technology, my aim is to continue to bring people together through the power of events for enjoyable & social experiences, by creating memories that will be fondly looked back on.”

Whether you are looking for help to arrange a special celebration, create a successful charity event or want to simply bring people together for business or pleasure, then Seventeen43 can create the perfect bespoke experience to suit all budgets.
