WHO WE ARE
As a London based event management company, we’ve been in business since 1998. The combined experience of our two principals, however, pre-dates that, with owner-directors Kati Pauk and Mish Toszeghi each bringing more than 20 years’ expertise in the field.
Kati started up KP as a corporate events agency, and now heads up our private and corporate work, while Mish looks after our live event and travel portfolios – areas in which he gained considerable experience prior to joining KP.
Between us – and with the help of a number of long-standing associates, each of whom bring specific talents to the organisation – we can confidently take on anything from the provision of ancillary event services to project managing high-profile spectaculars in the UK and indeed throughout Europe.
The great variety of events that we handle ensures a constant fresh approach and keeps us all interested, motivated and excited by what we do – an attribute that clients have frequently noted.
Although our events now span the private, corporate, live event and travel sectors, we believe that our success in each sphere has been built on the same basic ingredients – an ability to listen to our clients and to acquire a real understanding of their needs. That, along with imagination and creativity, extensive and up-to-date industry knowledge, meticulous organisational skills and an ability to secure favourable deals from our suppliers, provides a solid platform for great results.
By choosing to work with us, our clients get instant access to a bank of ideas, knowledge and contacts, that between them, go a long way to guaranteeing a successful event.
WHAT WE DO
Special events deserve special handling – and that’s something we think we do pretty well. Whether you’re planning a bar mitzvah, a wedding or other celebratory occasion, we understand that there’s an enormous amount of emotional investment at stake and will work with you to produce something that is genuinely about you and about how you want to celebrate.
Nothing cheesy, nothing because it’s “all the rage” and nothing because we want it – just ideas and suggestions that you like and that you feel will make your day that little bit more special.
Typically, the events we cover in this category include:
Just as private events are laden with emotional investment, corporate events put brand and image on the line. We know how much a successful event can enhance your brand and in the planning stages of all our corporate work, we keep the goals and ultimate aims of your event firmly in mind.
You can count on us to ensure that everything we organise for you will be done to the highest possible standards. If for any reason something can’t be done properly, we won’t let you do it. Instead we’ll work with you to create something that is 100% solid; something that will enhance and empower your organisation.
Although we’re frequently asked to take control of an event in its entirety, we’re also happy to take on just those elements with which our clients want some help. That could be finding a venue, suggesting the most appropriate entertainment options or simply providing event staff to help run the day. No two events are the same, and in our experience there's no end to the possibilities...

My CV describes me as :
"A versatile executive with extensive experience in travel and large-scale event management. Proven ability as a high-level international project manager. Flair for establishing positive, trusting and mutually rewarding relationships at all levels. Fluent in French, German and Hungarian, and able to operate in diverse cultural environments.

We all sound good on paper, and I suppose it's all true, but above all else, I would like people to think of me as a highly approachable person who cares about what I do, enjoys working with others, and has a good dose of experience and expertise to bring to any project.
