In the latest episode of our podcast we say hello to our (relatively) new Director of Events, Erin Davey-Barrow and find out lots more about her. She tells us about her childhood ambition to be an athlete, working on the 2012 London Olympics, setting up recording sessions at Abbey Road Studios and some of the challenges she’s faced in running events in the past, some of which include man’s best friend!
In the fourth episode of the Experience is Everything Podcast, we chat with Project Manager, Craig Charles (not that Craig Charles, our Craig Charles) about his childhood dream of becoming a pilot after a trip on Concorde, his work at a cruise company that would later inspire his career in events, Lego sets, Marvel movies and (nearly) wearing his wife’s trousers to the biggest event that Gray Dawes Events has ever put on.
In this episode, we chat with Event Exec Elle-Mae Martin about her childhood dreams of life becoming a dance movie, helping put together the G7 summit and how her own career is already pretty movie-worthy. Plus she shares what it was like putting together our largest ever event.
In the second episode of the Experience is Everything Podcast, we chat with Saffron Mattu to get a glimpse into a week in the life of an Events Executive. We find out all about Saffron’s dreams of fame that led her to advertising Dell laptops, her pathway into a career in events, casually rubbing shoulders with Gallagher brothers and Spice Girls, and much, much more.
In this first episode of the Experience is Everything Podcast, we caught up with Katie Whitby about her childhood dreams of riding into the danger zone like Maverick, tearing up the streets on scrambler motorbikes, sharing cars with Wimbledon legends (though never getting an invite!) and extreme multitasking at ultra-fancy weddings.
