Vanessa joined the Be Challenged team in January 2016 as the first full-time QLD Event Manager. Coming on board, Vanessa brought extensive event and hospitality experience, as well as exceptional customer service skills, to the Queensland office.
Vanessa is passionate about building trust and establishing rapport with her clients. From initial client meetings to the completion of an event, her goal is to ensure each detail has been taken care of and that the process is stress free and fun! Vanessa loves the energising buzz of interacting with all Be Challenged team members and is acutely aware of the impact workplace culture has on team effectiveness and staff personal growth. She is committed to bringing this commitment, energy and positivity to every Be Challenged event.
Flexible and adaptive in her approach, Vanessa is adept at ensuring delivery of Be Challenged programs is bespoke to the needs of the client. She thrives on a brief which poses a challenge and calls for some creativity! Whether facilitating a 900 pax “Orchestrate” program or a Flat Out Afloat program on Hamilton Island, Vanessa is capable of energising participants to challenge themselves, and be reminded of their personal strengths while having fun.
When she isn’t immersed in her role as Head of Events at Be Challenged, Vanessa loves the beach and outdoor activities. She is a keen scuba diver and loves hiking, spending time with her friends, family and her pup!
