We go together: Face and One Wimpole Street

Face UK's events, sales and marketing manager Simon Haroutunian and One Wimpole Street's conference and events manager Craig Wallace work so closely they have offices in the same street.

Simon Haroutunian, events and marketing manager, Face Ltd

I joined the company three years ago and Craig has been my main point of contact since then, as he has had a long working relationship with our parent company Wigmore Medical. The company distributes medical aesthetic products such as Restylane and runs its Body conference for 250 in November, at One Wimpole Street.

Our offices are actually next door, and it feels like a community around here. We talk as much about the event as about what is going on in our lives. There is even a pub across the road we meet up in. Craig always keeps me up to date on investments in the venue, but it never feels like a sales push. It is nice to have that sense of being looked after.

Craig Wallace, conference and events manager, One Wimpole Street

Between August and November, we are speaking at least once a week and immediately before the Body conference, we talk every day. It is so easy because we are right next door. We become best mates in the run up to the event.

The first year the Body conference came to One Wimpole Street, it was decided to stream a live demonstration of a minimally-invasive liposuction procedure from a registered office nearby. One of our technical guys went over to assist and came back looking decidedly green. We are always in conversation about something new. It doesn’t really seem like work at all.
