Juliet Lamb

Event Planner

Gilly's take on Juliet

Julsey is an absolute find. I brought her onboard because she is personable, extremely hard working, efficient and passionate about pleasing the people she works with. When you first meet her you notice her quiet confidence and lovely smile. 

She really listens to what is being asked of her and she takes great care in delivering it exactly as you want. She is honest, no-nonsense and loves target reaching and exceeding expectations. When she works on welcome desks guests often comment on how warm and polite she is, and with a quick wit she is entertaining and has excellent sense of humour - very much required in our industry!

Juliet, why event management?

I am detail driven and calm under pressure! It's also important to me that I work in an industry where I can draw on my creativity, be people facing and utilise my administrative talents.

What's it like working with you?

I am hard working and I thrive in fast paced environments. I am told I am a good listener and I deliver event costings and suggestions clearly and efficiently. I enjoy being given a 'to do' list as I like to take things and run with them with a no nonsense approach, I can multitask and I get the work done. I'm sociable, patient and understanding and I love front facing roles e.g. hospitality desk, hosting etc.

Where have you come from?

I was schooled at St George's School for Girls in Edinburgh. I took part in many extra curricular activities, including Business Enterprise, which I loved. I graduated from Newcastle University with my BA in Sociology. University was an amazing experience for me; it allowed me to discover my passion for creating experiences for people as it’s where I realised what could be achieved through group events and excellent organisation! Throughout university I worked in hotels and for event catering companies. The experience covered private and corporate events and within each role I worked closely with the event managers and delivered their objectives. From there I moved into freelance event assisting naturally and easily and I absolutely love it.

A real 'life changer' was when I worked for Luchie House looking after sufferers of Multiple Sclerosis. My job was to make their lives easier, assisting with their physical and emotional challenges. Rewarding and humbling.

When you're not managing events?

I love swimming; it's a real escape for me. I also enjoy a nice glass of wine and a home cooked meal. I come from a big, fun, loud and happy family and there is nothing better than a family get-together to relax and de-stress, it's a laugh a minute!
