Get to know Rachel Buswell, Account Manager for our venue finding agency, Sundial SOS.
What are the best things about your job?
I love meeting new people, joining clients on venue site inspections and listening/watching how their event will run and then actually seeing it come together. I have recently also had the chance to join the HBAA events committee got to help organise and run their annual forum – having opportunities like this outside of my every day job role is fab.
How did you get here?
8 years ago, I completed a one year placement at Highgate House spending time in both sales and operations. After completing my placement I went back to Sheffield Hallam University to finish my Events Management course and while I was there Sundial SOS had the job advertised, it was very good timing! My role has changed in the 6 years I have been here but has been great as I love a new challenge.
What achievements are you most proud of?
The things I’m most proud of are graduating university with a 2:1 degree and saving enough to buy my very own flat.
What are your interests outside of work?
I am a big football fan and a season ticket holder at Northampton Town Football Club. I go with my dad, uncle and cousin regularly. I also really enjoy walking, going out with friends and of course planning my wedding next year!
What’s your favourite film?
I love all cheesy musicals, Grease, Greatest Showman, High School Musical, but also really love Dirty Dancing and Harry Potter.
What’s your favourite holiday destination and why?
Anywhere that is hot and has a beach – Tenerife, Greece, Ibiza. I love them all. Rome was also very beautiful.
Name one thing that not many people know about you?
I swam with sharks in South Africa.
