I joined Euromoney in August 2012 and was instantly thrown into helping the team organise International Telecoms Week (ITW), the world’s largest annual event for the wholesale telecoms industry. To say it was a learning curve is an understatement but with a dedicated and hard-working team to support and guide me it turned out to be one of the most rewarding experiences I have had.
Fast forward two years and I have now helped deliver two world-class events that have exceeded expectation and received the most positive client feedback.
As Sales Administrator I am involved in all aspects of the event from start to finish, so my responsibilities vary from managing key accounts to designing marketing collateral to promote the event. I have travelled to Chicago, Amsterdam and Dubai, meeting incredible and inspirational people along the way.
A highlight was meeting our 2013 keynote speaker the former US Vice-President Al Gore, and I had the chance to speak with adventurer and broadcaster Ben Fogle. Another memorable moment was launching an annual charity fun run which attracted 200 runners and raised $15,000. I am now part of a Charity Committee that oversees fundraising across the whole of Euromoney.
While organising ITW can be challenging and requires absolute dedication, with the diverse range of opportunities available to me and the best team I have ever had the pleasure to work with, I can honestly say that I love my job.
