An eye-opening summer
Danny has joined us after recently leaving Newcastle University to pursue a career in the events industry rather than continue with his studies. He spent the summer working in the staffing team at Sodexo Prestige Venues and Events, which involved working at Chelsea Flower Show, Royal Ascot, Hampton Court Flower Show and the Open. This enriching experience confirmed to him that he wanted to work his way up the events industry ladder, mainly because he loves the energy and intensity of the environment.
Danny is a massive football fan and even travels regularly up to Liverpool to watch the matches. Danny recently moved to London from Bath, and when he’s not watching the game, he enjoys an active lifestyle playing hockey and socialising with friends. He also enjoys travelling a little further afield and spent five months travelling round South America during his gap year.
Christmas couldn’t come sooner for Danny
Danny is currently working in the Sales Team at Smart. “I love the atmosphere in the office with the interesting members of our team.” He enjoys the element of pressure and the need to make sure the team get the numbers to hit targets. “Each day is different and I’m always dealing with different people who have different needs…it’s really exciting!” He says he’s most looking forward to the Christmas period when he’ll get the chance to go down to a few of the events to see what the group puts together!
