Resuming our Meet the Team Series, we got to know more about our Events Manager.

This week, we talked with our Event Manager and travelling enthusiast, Amy Zahara. Amy leads our adventurous spirit from hiking up mountains to snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef.  

After joining us in 2018, Amy dethroned Donna as the fastest typer in the team and became our resident wedding expert in 2022. After getting married, she went on to attend 10 more in the year – in an unbiased opinion, Amy voted her wedding as the favourite.

So Amy, how long have you been at Veritas Events and how would you describe your role?

I’ve been at Veritas for almost 4 years now. I look after the logistics of our client’s events, from initial concepts all the way through to running around in my blacks on the day! 

Your favourite thing about Veritas Events? 

I love that we are all willing to jump in and help each other out when needed. Production, logistics, sales, digital, it doesn’t matter – we’re all one team, one dream! 

What inspired you to get into a career in events?

I actually have my dad to thank for introducing me to the events industry. After his company brought on an events agency to organise their conference, he called me up one day and said “I think you would love this!”. I was studying psychology at Uni at the time, but decided I had to check it out! 

What do you love most about what you do?

Definitely being onsite. I love the adrenaline that comes with show days, and I’ve been lucky enough to travel to some amazing places.

Do you have a hidden talent? What is it?

I have a next-level organisation system in my house. I make my own labels and have sorted everything in the pantry into aesthetically pleasing jars. I can also speak French! 

What’s your passion outside of work?

Travelling is definitely a big passion of mine, I’m always planning my next trip! I’m off to New Zealand in March, and hopefully Europe next year. 

What was your first job?

Scooping ice-cream at Ben and Jerry’s on Bondi Beach. 

  • Book – Mao’s Last Dancer or Boy Swallows Universe. 
  • TV Show – FRIENDS, hands down. I think I’ve seen every episode about 50 times! 
  • Song – My current favourite is Flowers by Miley Cyrus, although it changes all the time!
Favourite thing about BI WORLDWIDE and Veritas Events

I love that we are all willing to jump in and help each other out when needed. Production, logistics, sales, digital, it doesn’t matter – we’re all one team, one dream! 

What’s your favourite way to unwind after a busy day?

I walk home from the office, usually listening to a podcast, which really helps me to switch off from the day. 

Your hot tip for the latest event or styling trends.

There’s been a real focus lately on sustainable events, which I think is a great thing! From furniture, printing, catering and styling choices, there’s a lot that can be done in this space to have a sustainable event. 

What is your greatest client event/achievement?

Probably my favourite client event is the 50-Year Celebration we did for Daikin a few years back. I had a real pinch-me moment while watching a live band perform on the roof of a boat in the middle of Sydney Harbour, with the client’s logo lit up in the water next to us and fireworks going off overhead.
