A day in the life of our founder

Eventrac’s founder Aaron Bird is a driven sportsman who, as a regular competitor in challenge events, became frustrated by inconsistencies in the processes of event entry and decided to do something about it.  A keen sportsman and challenge event participant himself,  Aaron has blended his entrepreneurial traits, software development skills, professionalism and sound experience to create the expanding business that is Eventrac which now thrives on delivering a cutting edge entry platform for event organisers and event participants.

Aaron believes that keeping fit adds to your creativity.

“I do most of my planning and thinking when I am out on my long runs he says”.  “My working day starts at 5.30 am with either a 10 mile run or a 1.5 hour stint on my turbo trainer or a long cycle on the back roads in rural West Sussex.  After a healthy breakfast of scrambled eggs and avocado on toast I then set off to the office or to the meeting of the day.  “I really enjoy what I do, it’s a privilege to work in the sporting arena and observe so much activity going through the site and know that it gives so much pleasure to so many active people”.

After a lunch break that involves a visit to the gym for a speedy workout, its then back at desk for the rest of the day, supporting the team, going to meetings, networking, perhaps attending the occasional conference, seminar or exhibition as a speaker.  No two days are the same.

“I get to meet very inspiring people and am so impressed with the dedication and passion that event organisers have to promote their sport of choice”.

Aaron goes on to say..

“At the moment the site entries are focussing on those events that I myself participate in and have knowledge of, but that is by no means the site’s limitations, and we have some new themed events in the pipeline.  I have a great team working with me and as Eventrac grows even bigger we will be promoting a range of events across the event entry continuum.

Eventrac is underpinned by client referrals, endorsements and trust.  The company offers the event organiser an intuitive and flexible platform to promote events.  We look forward to a long association with you and play a part in helping to encourage your participants to return year on year.
