Have you ever wondered what it is like to plan and run events at one of the UK’s largest Exhibition Centres?
Join Jack and Karen as they chat to Michelle Baldwin, Head of Events at the NEC about what it is really like to work on some of the most famous events both nationally and internationally.
For Michelle, it all started at the ICC (the International Convention Centre in Birmingham) working for the in-house catering team. Here, she got a flavour for customer service, the venue and mostimportantly the events. She shadowed an ICC Event Manager as was hooked!
From this moment, her 22 year career at the NEC began.
Michelle has worked on a variety of shows such as Commonwealth Games, Spring Fair, BBC Gardeners World and BBC Good Food, Motorcycle Show and Moda... all of them brilliant, exciting and challenging.
Michelle prides herself in passing on her varied experience and nurturing future talent within the events industry. Alongside the responsibility of her role, she heads up the education stream of the NEC by working with schools and universities to encourage young adults to consider a career in events management called Events Week Live
