Looking Back: A year as an Apprentice Events Executive

Well, I have now officially completed my year’s placement as an Apprentice Events Executive at Holland Alexander! How fast time flies when you’re having fun hey?!

I cannot express how much I have learnt both professionally and personally throughout the placement, and also what an incredible journey the last twelve months has been. Not only have I gained plentiful skills and knowledge within the industry, but I have also had the experience of the lifetime, learning hands on what it takes to produce several different types of events, marketing campaigns and PR projects as well.

Inevitably there were high’s and low’s throughout the year (mainly highs of course!), but without all the hard work and times of high pressure, then there wouldn’t have been the successful events created. One major aspect to the role that I enjoyed the most was the buzz and the pure excitement of a live event, and then the amazing feeling that follows when the event comes to a close and you know you’ve done a great job.

I’m not going to lie, I will miss the atmosphere of working in the hustle and bustle of an office environment, but mainly I will also miss the great friends I have gained along the way. Although it isn’t the end of my employment with Holland Alexander – i would like to say a huge thank you to all the team, and good luck for the future!
