Freya is our current Event Assistant intern, helping with organising and bringing the events to life during her placement year with us. Freya is thrilled at the prospect of gaining some real hands-on experience and learning more about the events industry. She considers herself to be friendly and reliable, and hopes to bring plenty of organisation to the team!
I’ve already worked some great events with Story so far but I think my favourite event that I’ve worked on would be Story’s London Summer Party Show. The event sees venues and suppliers meet prospective clients in a themed exhibition. It was amazing to see how the team themed each of the rooms and how well they ran the whole event – every little detail was covered. Everyone felt like they had been transported into Summer with that Summer feeling coming along with them – despite it being freezing cold January!
Top tip for surviving the events industry
Don’t let setbacks get you down, a positive mindset will get you anywhere!
Proudest event moment
I once worked at a Food Festival and has signed up as a box office assistant as I had no previous experience and wanted to gain some general events skills. The day before the festival started I found out they’d moved me up to a box office manager as someone had dropped out last minute! It was a huge compliment and despite some difficult challenges, everything went fine and was a success. I was very proud of myself!
Favourite thing to do outside work
I love finding a new place or experience, so London is definitely the place be. However, I do love heading home from the craziness of London to the quiet countryside back home in Wales too – nothing beats a nice walk with the family!
