We put some questions to Elinor…
Elinor, when did you begin your events career, and what made you choose this industry?
I chose the industry mainly for it’s fun, flexibility and variation.
What type of campaign or event do you enjoy most and why?
Festivals and events definitely. I enjoy meeting people and travelling to different locations with my work.
As a Welsh speaker you are often requested by our Welsh Government clients – on these campaigns what do you find beneficial about being able to be able to communicate with consumers in Welsh? Is it received well?
In Welsh communities many people expect you to be able to speak or at least understand Welsh, especially the older generation, so yes it does come in really handy.
What are you up to when you are not working on promotional campaigns?
I enjoy keeping fit and spending time with my family and friends.
What has been your favourite/most memorable job to date?
I’d say the Ryder Cup 2010 as it was a huge event to have in Wales & it was great to be a part of the hospitality team. I’ve also recently been a part of the Citroen team on World Rally GB which was good fun.
Finally, how do you find working for eventeem?
It’s always a pleasure to work with eventeem. As an agency they are very well organised, responsive and deal with any queries that arise, and they have good payment terms which are always adhered to.
