Getting to know our team... Part one


Building rapport with your venue account manager and other suppliers is important when organising an event.

You are in touch with them regularly during the lead up to your big day, so it’s always nice to know who’s on the end of the phone or email.

To ensure you know who’s part of our team here at Ellerslie Event Centre, we asked each of our account managers a few questions so you can get to know them a bit better.

Stay tuned for more in the months to come!

Natalie Stol

Account Manager – Events

  • If you could attend any event in the world, what would it be and why? Something like the Oscars, or Met Ball, or similar. A grand scale, red carpet, celebrity filled event! I think it would just be so amazing to see the set-up, the glam, the outfits, and how it all works.
