Meet the Keen Team – Rebecca
- When did you start working in events, promo & hospitality?
I’ve always worked in sales and attending events to promote the companies I worked for was always part of my role which I really enjoyed. So, decided to make a full-time career out of it and set up Keen People!
- What’s your favourite event & why?
I have favourite events for different reasons, but I really like putting on a little black dress and some heels to host at a corporate or charity dinner!
- What’s been your favourite job?
Now this is tough as I absolutely love all the client jobs I work on… but dressing up as a bumble bee was fun, I love working or promoting at the festivals like Latitude or the Big Feastival but of course the best job of all is running and managing Keen People!
- What’s your best skill / party trick?
Running in heels probably!
- Favourite thing about working in events / promo?
I get to do something fun and that I enjoy every day, love handing out freebies or raising money for charities, anything that involves meeting new people!
- What do you do when you’re not working?
I go to the gym a lot as I love strength training, I walk my dog for miles, play golf, go shooting or watch a lot of stand-up comedy!
- Favourite music or band?
Another tough question… But I have to say my all-time favourite (and it has nothing to do with the band’s name) is Keane! I am often belting out their songs albeit not quite as tuneful as they do! If and when they are gigging… I’m always there right at the front! But I have to caveat this choice as I do like dance music too as that’s what motivates me most.
- Favourite item of clothing or brand?
My pj’s of course… I would live in them if I could!
- Favourite thing about being in the Keen People team?
My favourite thing about the Keen People Team is that we truly are good friends. I absolutely love working with all of the amazing people we have on our books. So grateful to have my Keen team as the business would be nothing without them!
- Favourite alcoholic drink?
What?? Just one? I love G&T’s (but must have an awesome garnish though!), a good red wine or a glass of fizz works too… Who am I kidding…I can’t choose a favourite; I like all alcoholic drinks!
- What’s the best bit about, being you?
That I genuinely think I’m the funniest person I know, I laugh at all my jokes! Laughing now as it happens! haha
- Favourite famous person or celebrity?
In the events industry we get to meet a lot of famous people and celebrities who are all amazing for different reasons so I wouldn’t know who to pick.
- Your life motto / or phrase you like to use?
“not a euphemism!” Or “pun intended!”
- Any claim to fame?
I once starred in a horror film with a fairly well know American actress (at the time)… just in 2 of the scenes though!
- Any nicknames?
The Keenster, Keeno or Boiks
