Up close with Sharks Events Centre team member Aimee Nowland
Sharks Events Centre welcomed Aimee to the team in January 2019. With seven years’ experience in the industry, coordinating corporate meetings is her specialty.
Tell us a bit about yourself?
I’ve recently purchased my first house so I’m busy settling in at the moment and enjoying making it my home! If I’m not at home, you’ll find me enjoying new restaurants with my friends and family or stealing my flatmates dog for a play.
Where did you grow up?
I am a born and raised Gold Coast girl. I moved to an acreage on the northern end of the Gold Coast when I was four and grew up riding horses. The Gold Coast will always be home.
Have you always been passionate about events, how did you end up in the industry?
At age 12, I saw the movie ‘The Wedding Planner’ and decided I wanted to be part of the events industry!
After completing my Bachelor of Business in Convention and Event Management at Southern Cross University, I worked in the audio-visual side of events before transitioning to coordination and haven’t looked back since.
What’s your favourite thing about your job?
The satisfaction of seeing an event come together and seeing the client happy at the end of the event. The client satisfaction is one the best parts of the job and seeing their visions come to life.
Describe working at Sharks in three words
