Manon in a few words

* Open to various work projects *
Event planning & onsite support (10 to 100 000 attendees), work flow automation (Google Sheets, Zapier), data analysis & visualisation.

After 8-year+ of experience with event & project management, I suppose the below describes my work philosophy quite well:
  • Keep myself challenged to look for the perfect configuration, because, after all, there might just be a better way
  • Effective flexibility in dynamic situations
  • Ability to orchestrate people and resources for maximum effectiveness
  • Develop successful strategies for getting things done
  • Always on the lookout for the upside of the situation
  • Remain focus when circumstances pull me in many different directions at once

Experience

Web Summit

Entertainment & Leisure

VIP Success Manager

Dublin, Ireland

September 2018 - Today (4 years and 2 months)

Amongst a team of four people, my main mission is to dedicate detailed attention to Web Summit's top speakers, journalists & investors, in order to ensure them a seamless & first-class experience, whether it's when they're attending our physical events or our online conferences. Their experience includes, mainly but not solely, their speaking opportunities, media engagements, networking, marketing, and legal aspects and all the logistics side as well (security, accreditation, car & hotel booking, meeting room allocation, etc.). Number wise, I can be looking after up to 60 VIPs per event (including world-known company CEOs & founders, Hollywood celebs, artists, international politics, notable editor-in-chief, etc.).

When I am not working on our conferences, I am focusing on improving our processes and the service we provide to our key attendees, which includes cross-collaborating with other teams on various projects. As in for instance: improving our speaker's networking experience, sharpening our scheduling tool so our team can be more efficient with the conference's agenda, being the geek of the team and enjoying spending time fixing and automating our spreadsheets, working on post-event reports. etc.

More about Web Summit: Founded in 2009, Web Summit brings together the people and companies redefining the global tech industry. In ten years, Web Summit has grown from 400 to over 70,000 physical attendees and is now one of the world's leading tech events. Web Summit's physical events are taking place all around the globe: Toronto (Collision), Hong-Kong (RISE), Lisbon (Web Summit), and soon to take place in Rio & Tokyo. They're gathering up to 71,000+ attendees, 1,200+ speakers, 2,500+ journalists and 100 VIPs. Due to Co-vid 19, Collision from Home became the first-ever online event organised by Web Summit in June 2020, followed by Web Summit Online in December 2020. These events gathered up to 100,000+ virtual attendees, 1,000+ speakers, 2,000+ journalists.
