Challenging and rewarding
Events Executive (Current Employee) – Johannesburg, Gauteng – 28 June 2016
Work day typically starts at 8:30 and ends at 16:30 Usually calling clients and sending through proposals, balancing with conceptualizing events for the year and doing presentations to clients as well as executives/CEO
I have learned a lot of valuable lessons and am proud to have been part of a team that I could also add value to. Fortunately to work at a media house that has existing clientelle and greater following, I've learned to do presentations to senior people in companies as well as take lead in many projects. I mainly work closely with my line manger as we are the only two people managing and foreseeing the events department, the rest of the team are all sales/Account Executives. It's a fairly small team, we all get a long well and assist each other where necessary, promoting team work.
The most enjoyable part of the job is definitely meeting and networking with truly amazing, inspirational people and getting to share innovative ideas, as well as travelling, putting together an event and watching it all come together beautifully in the end. That is so rewarding.
Odd working hours (When there's an event)
