Meet the team – Laura’s first six months

Blog | ZiaBia Team

I joined the ZiaBia team almost six months ago, in November 2022. The time has flown by!

The variety and diversity of the projects I have worked on means no two days are ever the same!

Working with all members of the team on different projects has enabled me to learn so much during my first six months. I look forward to seeing what the next six brings.

Why ZiaBia?

ZiaBia hired the venue where I was Event Manager for a high-profile event. This is when I first got the pleasure of understanding more about them as a company and what they do. It was clear that they were a company that prided themselves on attention to detail and going above and beyond for their clients.

By understanding more about what they did, and exploring their company values, it was too good an opportunity to miss when a position opened on their team.

My journey so far 

My time so far at ZiaBia has been varied! I have been very lucky to work on a variety of projects, and in a range of locations!

Straight away I supported two projects for a new client that we delivered at the beginning of the year. This was a great way to start my career at ZiaBia and allowed me to put into practice all my experience in the events industry, along with learning new skills from the team. Although the events were for the same company, they could not have been more different! However, both were international events, something which was new to me.

Working on events taking place overseas allowed me to truly see the importance of building strong supplier relationships and how to do this successfully. We were very lucky to work with some amazing local suppliers and venues, which has allowed me expand my event network.

What’s next?

I am looking forward to the next 6 months at ZiaBia and to see some of the projects I have worked on from the start, coming to life! Having worked in various roles, at different stages of the event process, working at ZiaBia has allowed me to merge these skills by working on projects all the way through. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing months of planning all coming together on the day of the event!

Would I recommend ZiaBia


My journey so far at ZiaBia has been incredible. The team have been amazingly supportive and I feel I have learnt so much from them in such a short space of time. They truly want the best for all their clients and go above and beyond in every project delivered.
