As we are at the beginning of rounding the last few months of the year off, I thought I would start a blog, to document and create a journal. Not just for us here at TTV, but for you too! So, HELLO! I’m Lilli, I have only recently joined the company, around 6 months ago, taking the role as a Sales and Events Coordinator and boy, hasn’t it been fun?!
I left school this year, finishing my A-Levels with a Distinction in Creative Media Studies and a Distinction * in Business. I left school knowing that university wasn’t really the path I wanted to follow, it was hard at first, as that’s what everyone was doing so I wasn’t sure if I was making the right decision, but then I found Tip Top Venues.
Before working here, I worked in a few different fields, but Events was always in the back of my mind, it was always something I knew would be suited to me and something I’ve always wanted to try. Apart from being in a job that I absolutely love at such a young age, in my spare time I enjoy going to the gym to improve my fitness and strength.
So, what do I do?
Well, that’s a very long list; but in short…I work alongside Helen and help organise and run all the events here!
I cover a range of jobs, all the way from producing social media content, to managing our accounts on sites like Hitched, to planning our in-house events! Much of my time at the moment is spent on our Christmas Events and planning for 2020.
Since joining the company I have had one of the most busiest Summers, hosting such a variety of events. That is the true beauty of the Tipis, they have great character and are perfect for any occasion. We kicked off Spring with some of the most beautiful weddings, (FYI, I cried at pretty much every one, LOL), followed by some corporate parties.
We always want to make sure that our organizers and guests feel most relaxed on the day. There here to have the best time and we want to see the same!
We have a small team that works behind everything to do with TTV, there’s me, Helen, Val and Amie. Even though there are only four of us, we are such a close, hardworking team: #girlpower! Our team has such a successful, fun-filled summer and speaking from all of us, we have enjoyed every last minute!
What am I working on now?
We wanted to end the year with something new, something exciting. So, we have been busy planning for Christmas, which here, in the office, is our most favourite season. Yep, we’re Christmas CRAZY.
For those of you that didn’t make it to our Summer Cinema Club, fear not, we are bringing it back; Christmas style! We have all the festive favourites lined up here for you… Elf, Home Alone, The Polar Express & The Holiday. We’re working with Oh My Cakery & Bandit Street Food – we’re stuffed just thinking about it!
Not only do we have our Cinema Club, we also have our Christmas Tipi Fest. So, If you’re planning a Christmas work party or hoping to go for a Christmas night out with family or friends we have you covered! Bandit Street Food will be there serving ‘badass’ Christmas inspired burgers and sides AND to top it all off, the live band and DJ will be bringing you all the biggest and best songs, past and present, including some Christmas classics, so you can sing your heart out!
Well, that’s it from me, for now anyway. I have learnt so much since I’ve been here and the fact that I have been able to share and be a part of so many successes so far has been incredible. I can’t wait to be a part of all the success next year!
