Career high When I was promoted to my role as an account manager nine months ago. I am very proud of how my team and I have developed so many strong relationships within the account.
Worst event moment Last summer one of my colleagues and I had to organise an event in France for 40 international delegates in four days. It was a lot of work and I was very apprehensive but we managed to make it run smoothly.
I wish I’d run... a chaotic event like La Tomatina [the food festival and tomato fight], which attracts up to 40,000 people.
Alternative career I’m a qualified Spanish and English teacher, but I also wouldn’t rule out running my own business.
My next step Managing a bigger account, developing client relationships and providing a consistent quality of service.
