Spotlight on…is a unique look at individuals from Venues and Events International providing insight into their daily roles and why they have a passion for the meetings and events industry. Here is our latest Spotlight on…Katie Venner, Conference Team Supervisor.
2 years 3 months (But I have worked for Anita for over 4 years)
I love planning and organising so events seemed a natural fit for me, then becoming a supervisor within the team has now allowed me to feed my passion for people, and being able to support them within their own development.
There have been so many highlights, but one that sticks in my mind is an annual conference that I organised with a Quintessentially British Theme, this had so many fun and exciting elements to it and the best part was getting amazing feedback from our client after the event – which is what it’s all about after all!
There really is no typical day in my job, EVERY day is different and I truly wouldn’t have it any other way… variety is the spice of life as they say and this job has bucket loads of it!
Don’t get me wrong, our quirky country offices on the farm are a beautiful setting but it certainly is a challenge tangoing with the flies on a daily basis.
Take one day at a time, run with the highs and roll with the lows, get out and see as many venues as you can, keep things fresh, be proud of your achievements and keep your clients at the forefront of everything you do!
Who knows…. I love learning new things and progressing within the company I work for, so hopefully onwards and upwards!
Knowing that I have made a difference, however small, to my client’s, and hopefully my teams experience during that week.
