Charlotte Barker has been part of the team since 2015, and leads the conference team. After completing her placement year with us while studying at the University of Gloucester doing Events Management with Marketing and Branding, we were delighted to welcome her back to the venue post-degree on a permanent basis. With numerous successes over the past eight years she has recently been appointed as Venue Sales Manager. Her pursuit of excellence in customer service and finding solutions for events, has made her much loved both within the venue and by our clients alike.
Each year we take on students for year-long placements to develop and grow a new era of event professionals. Many of these have since returned to work at the venue or go on to successful careers elsewhere within the industry. In 2022, we welcomed two additions to the team, Kirsty Jakulis and Reanna Reilly. From meeting clients, providing an admirable customer journey and solidifying a foundation for a seamless experience from start to finish, they have become key members of the team this year.
Kirsty Jakulis is an Event Management and Marketing student at the University of Hertfordshire, and is based in our Venue Sales office, supporting the team on delivering our fantastic conferences calendar.
“This position allowed me to gain experience and insight not only within the Events industry, but also in Sales and Marketing. BDC London is a supportive environment, by taking the time to develop me and help boost my confidence within a professional environment.”
“I have loved my placement so far as it’s given me a real insight to the event world. From attending conferences to project managing my own large-scale show, I have gained so many new skills that will aid me in my final year of university and career. Not only that, but working with such a great team every day has been a pleasure.”
“I couldn’t have asked for a better first role in Event Marketing. I feel empowered everyday to do better, learn more and be proud of what I’ve achieved so far. I’m really excited to see where my marketing career takes me at BDC London.”
