Melanie is one of the original 5 who started at Story and has been building the fantastic Story client base ever since day one.

BEST EVENT

Delivering a fully 1920’s prohibition themed, jam packed with entertainment, Christmas event at Café de Paris was so great. The client allowed us to go wild with the brief which was such fun.

WHAT I HAVE LEARNT

That building relationships is key – we have such a wide range of clients and so no two days are ever the same. I love interpreting their brief, creating the event then seeing it come together and celebrating with a glass of bubbles afterwards, of course.

TOP TIP

Don’t just aim to answer a brief – always exceed expectations.

FAVOURITE VENUE/SUPPLIER

My favourite venues and suppliers come down to the people I trust to deliver – Aqua and Circus are among my favourite venues in London but my dream venue is the Silver Sturgeon and luckily we get to work onboard all the time. Of course an amazing view and great food always helps!

PROUDEST EVENT MOMENT

Working with a brilliant team at Story so that I can confidently develop an event, pass to our fantastic ops team and know we’ll get ‘that’ email the day after the event. Trusting my colleagues with my clients is a brilliant feeling.

The future belongs to the curious. The ones who are not afraid to try it, explore it, poke at it, question it and turn it inside out.
