Welcome aboard, Ellie!
What a great way to start a year – with a new Event Manager! Our much-revered Harriet Cottam late last year decided to pursue more local work, and we are ever-grateful for her contribution over the last four years. As of this week, the RTC Events Management team (and the ANZ and EUR committees) welcome Ellie Mihalarias to the team (mental note: don’t ever spell it as ‘me-hilarious’ I’m sure that’s NEVER happened before!)
We asked Ellie to help you get to know her a little…
I have 6+ years’ experience in event management, marketing and project management. Over the past few years, I’ve successfully executed a number of large conferences and exhibitions:
- EduTECH International Congress & Expo – the southern hemisphere’s largest education event
- National FutureSchools Expo – Australia’s largest schools event
- Technology in Government Expo
- 30 National Conferences, trade shows for Medical Devices
- Much more!
When not at work I enjoy spending time with my big Greek family and friends, as well as reading and travelling.
I believe strongly that creating an event is creating an experience for all guests. That is why I strive to make sure that the events deliver something tangible, they can use after it has ended. The key to organising a successful event is loving what you do and being passionate about creating experiences.
Seems to me she’ll fit right in with the team! Welcome, Ellie! Our 2018 events are going to be epic!
