Recently at NR Events: Our New Clients and Getting Work In The Industry

Recently at NR Events, we have been establishing new relationships,ย  as well as building on existing relationships with new and long term clients to expand our event portfolio. We thrive in working with new people and enjoy being able to deliver high standard events that mean that our loyal clients return for next time. Read on to find out about our new clients and how it is possible to secure work in the events industry…

Refugee Council

About the company:

“The Refugee Council is a leading charity working with refugees and people seeking asylum in the UK. Founded in 1951 following the creation of the UN Refugee Convention, we exist to support and empower people who have fled conflict, violence and persecution in order to rebuild their lives here in the UK.

We work with over 13,000 women, men and children each year who are desperately seeking safety. From the moment refugees arrive in the UK, we are here.”

At the beginning of July, we event managed and produced ‘My View’ by Refugee Council, which presented the charity’s latest programme to help young refugees in terms of providing therapy and counselling sessions. This took place in a luxury London office and was host to great keynote speakers as well as a brilliant choir made up of refugees.

This was a fulfilling event to work on with such a topical message, and a great team to work with too. The Refugee Council trusted us to bring the event to life and make it an engaging evening for all. Some of the responsibilities of NR Events included:

  • Delegate management
  • Stage management
  • Speaker management
  • Registration & ticketing
  • Venue liaison
  • Badge design and printing
  • Coordinating the headphone audio exhibit
  • & more!

We were really pleased with the outcome of the event and received very positive feedback from Refugee Council too. We hope to work with them again in the near future!

Q Community

About the company:

“We are a community of thousands of people across the UK and Ireland, collaborating to improve the safety and quality of health and care. We share our knowledge and support each other to tackle challenges. Together, we make faster progress to change health and care for the better.”

We have been lucky enough to be appointed as the new events agency for Q Community, which is an organisation delivered by the Health Foundation. NR Events will be the production and management team for Q’s major annual events and slot into their internal events team effortlessly, with the first event taking place on 5th September in London.

We are excited at the prospect of introducing innovative and creative ways for Q’s members to network and collaborate to generate fresh ideas in improving their work and shaping the future of the health sector. There will be a variety of different venues in the UK that play host to these events and we can’t wait to get started.

The events that we will be taking on for Q Community are:

  • Q Community (Virtual)
  • Q Exchange
  • Q Lab Workshops

All with unique features that will come with their own challenges that we are confident we can overcome as a team.

How do you get new work in the events industry?

There is a variety of different ways to secure new work in this industry but it really is true when people say ‘it’s who you know’. Building up a large and trustworthy network of event professionals and clients will really give you the headstart in being recommended for future jobs. Keeping in touch with these people will be valuable and you never know when a connection may come in handy. Volunteering, stepping into someone’s role last minute, and going above expectations will all contribute to a glowing review from others. You can’t go wrong with being confident and proactive to develop your career.

That doesn’t mean to say that you can forget about sending applications and pitching for new clients, as it’s still important to practice these skills regularly. In order to be successful with our Q contract, we had to deliver a pitch and attend online interviews so they could be sure we were right for them and vice versa. This can be nerve wracking, but will demonstrate to your potential client that you can work under pressure and maintain a calm presence.

Here at NR Events, we keep our prices fair and transparent by tracking the time we spend working on each of our projects. We do this with the brilliant app @timeular which we can input our budget into and compare time spent vs. how much budget is left. ๐Ÿ’ฐ

This means we can pretty accurately estimate how many days we will spend when pitching for a new event, leaving the client with no unexpected charges post-event! ๐Ÿ†

(Even while writing this, Emily is using Timeular to track her time spent on the NR social media ๐Ÿคญ)

How do you manage your projects?

We use an app called @wriketeam which suits all of our project organisation, scheduling, and task management needs. It`s simple to add client users to collaborate on projects and keep right up-to-date with progress โœ…

We also build `master schedules` in Google Drive that has all the vital event information in one document - running order, staff & supplier contacts, printing list, budgets, packing lists, and more! ๐Ÿ˜…

NR Events are always looking for the latest and simplest platforms to make our work easier and more efficient! This week we want to shout about our favourite platforms that make our lives just a little bit easier...

@tickettailor is our well-loved ticketing and registration provider that has delivered some of our smoothest events. Not only is the website and check-in app really easy to navigate, it`s also a lot cheaper than most of the top dogs out there ๐Ÿ’ช

What ticketing platform do you use and why?

Carbon Impact Reporting is a service that we offer as standard for each new project. We know that making events as sustainable as possible is really important and we support our clients and suppliers that think the same ๐ŸŒ

We are constantly learning new things with TRACE`s newsletters and looking to improve this even more by taking part in an online sustainability course very soon ๐Ÿชด

NR Events understand that attending events as a disabled person can sometimes be very stressful ๐Ÿ˜“

But it doesn`t have to be this way! We are on a mission to make our events accessible for any type of disability. Especially working with @vision_fdn, it has opened our eyes to an events world for the blind and partially-sighted that needs to become much more inclusive.

Having already taken part in an Attitude Is Everything online course on Inclusivity, this is something we feel really passionate about ๐Ÿ‘

A couple of weeks ago we were experiencing a typical British festival in our wellies and raincoats ๐ŸŒง๏ธ

But that didn`t stop our team from delivering their best in Evictions for Secret Garden Party and making sure that everyone in the festival was respecting the guidelines and partying safely ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿชฉ

Unfortunately that`s our last festival for 2023, but we`re looking forward to returning to the fields next year!
