Inceptional people

Donna Hodges

Managing Director

I’m Donna and I started Inception Events in 2010 after working in a corporate background and living in 5 different countries. My passions are travel, running, reading, along with good food and wine. Since moving back to my home roots of the East Midlands, I have taken up trail running, and you will often find me exploring the Peak District, the beautiful National Forest, and the South Derbyshire countryside.

Lucie Battenti

Senior Events Manager

I'm Lucie (Luc-IE not Luc-Y) and my Italian surname is courtesy of my husband, unfortunately not my heritage. I have worked in the event industry since 1999. A lot has changed over this time and especially in the most recent years since joining Inception Events in 2016. There is always something new to experience - this is what I love about the event industry! Outside of work my life is busy with my Cocker Spaniel, Frank, and with running. I have 4 marathons under my belt and the 5th is approaching too fast!
