Beginning as a Development Events Apprentice in 2013, on a 20 month contract, Chanel is now a Senior Development Events Manager.
What was the best thing about your apprenticeship?
Being able to ask questions. I’d always known that I wanted a career in event management but didn’t know how to get my foot in the door. When I started at the NT, being an apprentice meant that everyone knew I was new to this and everyone so understood of my 100 questions a day.
What was your favourite project while you were an apprentice and why?
Working on a dinner event for some high level supporters, I was tasked with curating the performances and asking all of the actors to be involved!
