I wake up when..

I’m responsible for…

 

The Toddler…and leading my superb diverse team of Events & Hospitality Staff!

 

I got the job…

My typical day…

 

Involves Coffee, cycling to work, and then continuously switching between projects, events, and staff management of our beautiful four-storey building . My staff will probably say no one week is the same, and that is most certainly true!

 

The funniest moment at work…

After work…

If I didn’t work here I’d…

 

I’ll probably sound boring and say I’d still be doing a similar job elsewhere… but owning a venue would be rewarding.
