Powwow Events hires two new 'rising stars'

The global creative events agency has appointed two recent graduates to join the team.

Powwow has announced the two new additions to the company, both of which recently graduated.

Polly Hawkes initially started with Powwow during a school placement and has now graduated with a First Class Honours in Events Management from Leeds Beckett University. Hawkes proved her worth when working on a number of events between term times.

The second new addition is Lucy Burton who, having secured a year placement at TMF Group Hong Kong (as part of her Management with Marketing degree sandwich course), has put her international events experience to good use; currently assisting on several events including a European conference and incentive.

Both hires are examples of why it is important for young talent to get involved in the industry before completing their degree, as it provides immeasurable experience of real-life event management and helps to boost careers.

Burton comments: I spent a month working in Singapore, which I found utilised my strongest abilities and what I enjoy most - organisation, planning, working under pressure and to tight deadlines; all of which I feel are appropriate for events and it was here that I realised my skill set had a career path."

Amanda Edgcumbe, Founder & Director Powwow, says: "Really excited to have these two young and talented graduates on board – we have exciting times ahead for these rising stars."
