How long have you been at Venues and Events International?

I started here at the beginning of April so only a few weeks, but it feels like longer!

What would you say is your favourite venue or destination?

Italy would be my dream destination to work in.

What made you want to become a Conference Planning Executive?

I enjoy organising events and being about to see a job through from start to finish. I also like the values held here, especially in regards to high customer touch so that you really get to understand the clients requirements.

Can you describe a typical day of your job?

At the moment I am still working through my 3 month induction plan, but already 2 days are never the same which I love!

What’s been your biggest challenge to date?

I am currently training and can’t wait to get stuck in with the team – so no challenges so far!

What top tip would you give to anyone coming into the industry?

Be organised and take notes.

What gives you that #FridayFeeling?

Good weather and plans with the family are always something to look forward to.
