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… Amy Nicoll, Account Director.
I started here in the middle of April, but I’ve been working in the events industry for 16 years.
My favourite destination is definitely Switzerland. It’s only an hour and a half from London, it’s the most beautiful country and the people are so hospitable.
What made you want to become an Account Director?
I’ve always enjoyed looking after clients and building relationships. Learning about what makes people happy and then working together with the team to try and make it happen is so rewarding!
Can you describe a typical day of your job?
It usually starts with a “To Do” list which rapidly evolves depending on what my clients need from me. The ability to adapt, prioritise and remember things is really important.
I wouldn’t say there are “big challenges” but working in an industry which is constantly evolving means having to keep on top of the latest trends, technology and legislation on behalf of your clients.
