We’re bringing back our Spotlight On feature – this time featuring Will Dalzell.
Head of Events Proposition and Innovation
I joined Anita at what was then Venues Event Management in 2012, first working as a Team Co-Ordinator, after a short time I was promoted to Conference Co-Ordinator looking after various corporate clients including Virgin Media and QinetiQ. In 2015 I moved over to our events team and became an Event Executive, then Event Manager and finally Senior Event Manager before I rejoined Anita in 2018. I am now responsible for the operation of our events team, ensuring our proposition is the best it can possibly be for our clients.
What is the event you have most enjoyed working on?
An associate day for our client Honda, it was a great family event with loads of different activities and fairground rides provided as a thank you from Honda to all of their staff. We provided full project management, event management and logistics.
What is your favourite UK event venue and why?
The Landmark in London apart from the building itself being amazing the service and quality of the hotel is fantastic. Not only this but the amount of wealth that surrounds you in the hotel amazes me, literally everyone has a story.
Who would you invite to your dream dinner party?
Harry Redknapp, Jimmy Carr and Jeff Bezos. Harry as football is basically life and Jeff as I think his stories of becoming the richest person in the world (not any more!) would be brilliant. Jimmy Carr because he is the funniest person alive!
