Welcome aboard! I’m Ece, your Captain ⛵

Together, we’ll sail the seas of events and community to grow your business. Fora is all about trust, collaboration and community. There’s a hell of a lot of negativity, suspicion and competition out there, so I created Fora to be a safe, professional space away from all that!

How I got here...

I’ve been a multi-hyphener for as long as I can remember. I could never answer questions like, “What’s your favourite subject at school?” or “What do you want to be when you grow up?” – because I loved and wanted to do everything!

At one point, my goal was to be a teacher during the day, a dancer in the evenings and a waitress at the weekends. I haven’t quite followed the path Young-Ece saw for me, but I bring that same sense of multi-hyphenate experience and skills to everything I do now.

I’m an engineering graduate (which often surprises people!) turned events and community manager, bringing together the two (somewhat conflicting) parts of my brain: the logical, engineering-focused side that focuses on detail and processes and planning; and the creative, enthusiastic side that brings ideas, design and a human-loving skillset.

Listen to me talking about my journey:

Fora: The Journey

Fora was born out of a realisation that there was something more out there. For the first part of my life, I studied hard, worked hard and landed a corporate job. A job where I could learn a lot and make a real difference.

But something was still missing.

In the hamster wheel of corporate life, I soon realised that the opportunities to build real human connections were few and far between. In the fast-paced world of events and marketing, I wasn’t able to focus on using my strengths properly: attention to detail, community, collaboration and delivering the absolute best solution to business problems.

With Fora, I’m able to fully utilise every part of my personality and skillset for your benefit.

Fora is all about community, collaboration and opening your eyes to a whole new way of growing your business. Harking back to my Turkish roots, ‘fora’ itself means ‘to unfurl the sails’ – which is exactly what I aim to do for you and your business!
