Laura's Tips, Tricks, and Advice for Being a Standout Brand Ambassador
Laura's 15 years of experience makes her a great resource for aspiring event managers and brand ambassadors. Below she offers her tips on what it takes to be a go-to resource for staffing agencies in the experiential marketing world.
1. What's been the key to your success in this industry?
"My work ethic, as it's very simple. I give 100% and take every job seriously. I try to nurture and lead by example, even if I'm not a team lead! I have a genuine interest in people and I'm confident to engage with literally anyone."
2. From your perspective, what makes a flawless execution of an event?
"You must be patient and know that plans can change - even if you plan well in advance. You need to be ok with this (from the) start and, if plans do change, just work towards making the event even better than you originally had planned before. But also, it's important to treat others how you would like to be treated. This can work in your favour and the process of an event will run a lot smoother with people by your side assisting you, as opposed to going against you. "
3. What advice would you give to new staff members like yourself, who want to be booked on for more jobs?
"Always give 100%, always be on time, and get noticed for being a valuable member of your team. Choose one good staffing agency like Elevate and stick with them. Be your own BEST Brand Ambassador!"
Bonus* If you were an animal, what would you be and why?
"A penguin! (Symbolic) It calls for self-discipline and determination so that you can achieve your goals. The meaning of the penguins also teaches you about having grace when it comes to your actions and emotions. You possess the strength and fortitude to live with and overcome struggles. The penguin spirit animal is a symbol of renewal."
