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.

How long have you been at Venues and Events International?

I started here in the middle of April, but I’ve been working in the events industry for 16 years.

What would you say is your favourite venue or destination?

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.

What’s been your biggest challenge to date?

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.

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

Only eat half of whatever is put in front of you!

What gives you that #FridayFeeling?

Getting home, putting on my slippers, eating a pizza and falling asleep on the sofa!
