Meet the team – Ashton’s first six months

Blog | ZiaBia Team

I joined the ZiaBia team almost six months ago and what a journey it has been! 

I’ve been working with team ZiaBia as a Junior Project Manager since November 2022. I have loved every minute so far! 
I have learned so much from the wonderful team already and I am very excited about the future!

Why ZiaBia?

I have worked in the events industry for over 10 years and have primarily been venue side which I have always really enjoyed. I first met ZiaBia at an event that was taking place at my previous venue. The team were organising a high-profile event and as their main contact I spoke with and got know them well. I was intrigued as to what they did and who they were.  A few months later they were involved in another event at the venue and I absolutely loved working with them again. Soon after I saw their job opportunity on LinkedIn and here I am!

My journey so far 

Since joining the team I have been lucky enough to be given the opportunity to work on an international sporting event programme. This has led me to work with venues across the world, which has been very exciting. I am really enjoying expanding my global network!

I have worked with another client on three separate events around the UK and Ireland. The first being an end of year celebration in London followed by two sales kick-off events, one in Manchester and the other in Dublin. I have always wanted to travel with work so this really has been a dream for me!

I was also thrilled to be given the opportunity to work on a local event in Bristol, my hometown. This gave me the opportunity to reconnect with previous contacts. I even got to manage the registration at a venue where I used to work. This really was exciting and so great to be able to work with some familiar faces!

What’s next?

As ZiaBia are a full-service agency, each event has different requirements. This can range from a venue find to delegate management to full project management. I am very much looking forward to getting involved in all aspects of the event management process, and very excited to see where the next six months and beyond will take me!

Would I recommend ZiaBia?  

Being part of Team ZiaBia offers a whole host of opportunities and working for this fantastic company couldn’t have come at better time for me. Joining the team has given me a chance to learn new skills as well as meet new people and expand my network! I can’t recommend ZiaBia highly enough as a company to work for!
