A new role has been created within the Sharks Events Centre team to meet the growing requests for special events. Recently appointed Special Events Coordinator, Lilly Mann joined the team in October 2018, bringing her bubbly personality and enthusiasm for creating tailored events for clients.
Tell us a bit about yourself?
I recently returned from a working holiday in Canada. Unfortunately, I never transformed into a pro-snowboarder like I thought I would – haha. I really love to travel, and I am a proud #dogmum.
Where did you grow up?
I was born in Toowoomba. I have moved back and forth between Toowoomba and the Gold Coast throughout my schooling, so I will always call the Gold Coast my home.
What made you pursue a career in event management?
I am extremely passionate about the events industry, as I enjoy the creativity and variety that comes with each client and their event. Every day I strive to learn more and grow as a person and there is no better way than in an industry where every day is different, as the industry is constantly evolving and there is an opportunity to be innovative.
What do you enjoy most about assisting people organise their special occasion?
Whether it be a celebration of love or life, a birthday party or an engagement – my favourite thing about my job is being able to see my clients vision come to fruition. A lot of thought goes into each event no matter the size, and my job is to make it as easy as possible for people to celebrate various aspects of their life in the best way possible.
You mentioned a passion for health food and fitness, any tips?
I’m a true believer everyone should have a second passion in life, mine is to always stay active both physically and mentally. A quote that resonates with how I live my life is “never be afraid to try something new because life gets boring when you stay within the limits of what you already know”. A hot tip I would give anyone, is you can’t pour from an empty cup – so take care of yourself first!
