Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE

CEO Liz Hobbs Group Ltd

This former World Water Ski Racing Champion now works with some of the world's greatest venues and artists, and has plenty of stories and advice to share! She'll be talking about what it’s like to put together live events at the highest level: the physical infrastructure, the people power and the very definition of multitasking. Learn about the roles on offer and how you can get your feet, ears the rest of your body in the door of this growing sector!


Find out how Liz came through sport and artist management, got into the events and music industry, and developed unique revenue streams through the Liz Hobbs Group for an industry in decline.

Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE

The successful sport and business woman came to her music career through world level sport and broadcast media. She was British Ski Racing Champion 7 times, European Champion before her 18th birthday and World Champion before her 21st.

Liz went on to break the British European and World Speed Records and retired undefeated champion of the world! Liz was nominated for the Sports Personality of the Year Award, won the Sports Writers of the Year Award and most notably was awarded the MBE for Services to Sport.

Following her sporting career, Liz went from strength to strength. The sheer determination and commitment that brought her success proved invaluable when learning a new trade. She made the effortless transition onto the public stage where she became a familiar face, presenting a series of TV and radio programmes on BBC Radio 2, ITV and Sky Sports, culminating in her own show on YTV, Hobbs Choice.

After turning her hand to producing and directing TV and radio shows, Liz turned her entrepreneurial flair towards developing a management agency for sports personalities that went on to develop in theatre and television. The entertainment side of the business was launched almost 20 years ago and is today, the largest provider of concerts and events to sporting venues and events in the UK; creating a unique synergy between sport and entertainment.

Liz has always been keen to use her success to raise awareness for well-known charities that are close to her heart. Liz is extremely proud to be Chair of the Pink Ribbon Ball; a charity that funds ground-breaking research for Breast Cancer Campaign.
