TEDxBrisbane Event Management
The TEDxSouthBank team was very excited to be asked to take on the city-wide license of TEDxBrisbane in 2017, after operating successfully since 2012.
In my continuing role as Head of Operations (previously 'Event Manager'), I am responsible for the operation of everything except the production (AV is really not my thing...). This includes:
working with partners to create their activation spaces (brand showcases with a TED twist!)
all logistics and decisions to do with catering, including the carefully curated menu designed to highlight small producers in Brisbane's food scene
managing an incredible group of 30+ volunteers
working to ensure the event runs seamlessly (or at least seems to...)
In 2017, I was very proud to learn that we maintained are incredibly high Net Promoter Score, despite doubling in size and moving to a new venue. This was an extraordinary group effort, and has placed us among the top TEDx events in the world.
