Louise Hunter
Managing Director

Louise Hunter is the founder and driving force behind Summerhouse Media, bringing her passion, creativity and vision to each event.

Louise founded Summerhouse Media in 2007 having built an impressive portfolio during her eighteen years with the Financial Times as Regional Director for Africa, the Middle East and the Indian Sub-Continent and latterly as Director of Conferences.

Louise has worked extensively with many governments and organisations including The World Bank and The International Finance Corporation producing special reports and high-level investment conferences.

Louise takes the time to explore and shape the objectives of each event, working with event organisers not simply just to deliver an event but to create a creative vision which reflects its true purpose and then bring it to reality through every detail. For companies struggling to position, differentiate or create the seed of an idea to deliver against organisation objectives, Louise delights in being involved from initial discussion stage to bring her considerable experience and creative input to the process to shape and deliver the very best event.
