How did you get into your line of work?
I organised events at university and really enjoyed it. I then took an internship at Barclays Capital in their marketing team and things evolved from there.
What do you do day to day?
Working in the luxury events industry there is no same day as each event and client is unique; I jump between ‘creative brainstorming sessions’ to ‘menu tastings’ from ‘venue site visits’ to ‘celebrity speakers’. It is exciting because there is always something new to immerse yourself in.
What’s the most rewarding part of the job?
That feeling when the event is wrapping up and your client is happy. You can’t beat that!
And the most challenging?
Managing an event onsite can come with challenges. However much you have prepared in advance, situations can sometimes arise that are out of your control, such as weather or flight delays. Reacting efficiently in such high-pressure situations is challenging, but we always find solutions and make it work!
