Dominique has joined the team at Functions&Events.co.nz taking on the role of Sales Executive. We sit down for a question and answer session with her so you can get to know the person taking your next function enquiry.
How long have you been working in sales and event management?
I've been in the industry seven years including my time spent at WelTec where I studied a triple diploma in business, marketing and management to compliment my event experience.
When did you know you wanted to work in the events industry?
When I was studying German and politics at Victoria University.
Wow that's a bit of a change what brought that on?
I was working part time in an English Pub and enjoyed taking care of the events there and decided I wanted to switch from politics to events!
None at all - best decision i've made. The event industry is so dynamic and every day is different from the last.
Any massive events you care to talk about?
During the Rugby World Cup I looked after several of the team events including - South Africa, France, Fiji and Argentina. Plus i've also looked after the Australians when they have come over for tests.
Any tips for someone booking their next social function?
Any details that you can give us - big or small - will help us find the best fit for you!
What's something people tend to forget with events?
What AV requirements they need - not every venue has this on site.
What's the most memorable function you have ever attended?
My best friends wedding - it was a fusion of her traditional Greek family and his laid back Kiwi approach. It was so special and such a cool melting pot of cultures - definitely one to remember.
If you've got a function coming up make sure you contact Dominique by email or phone 021 548 725, she's more than happy to help!
