Part 2! I have now finished my two weeks work experience at The Conference People! It has been a great experience working here and has given me an immense insight into how the world of event management works. I have learnt how much time and dedication goes into each individual event and how all the team work together.
This week I worked in the venue finding department, my first job was to shadow one of the venue finders. It was good to see how they managed all the new inquiries that would come in over the day and how they have to work at speed to ensure the clients receive detailed proposals within 24 hours of receiving a brief.
From my work experience the key skill that seems to run throughout the company is excellent communication with everyone within the company and externally with clients and suppliers.
Working here has made me want to carry on with events! It has been such a great experience!
