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

In May’s instalment of Meet the Team, we got to chat with Em, a world traveller, logistics expert and the leader of our travel team. While Em has travelled to over 40-countries she has lived in the UK where she developed a love for the arts and in particular, theatre.  

When not travelling the world, Em loves a great restaurant and always keeps the team up to date on the best food in Melbourne. With Em and Jac just welcoming Teddy to the family, their son Leo is very excited to have a new travel buddy by his side!

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

I started with BI WORLDWIDE at the beginning of 2016 and I am the Senior Travel Manager for the Veritas Events team. I make sure everyone gets to where they need to be, when they need to be there. 

What inspired you to get into a career in events and travel?

When I first visited Africa in 2007, I knew travel was the life for me. Exploring new cultures and visiting some amazing places inspired me to help others see and explore the world. 

What do you love most about what you do?

Talking all things travel and planning travel to different destinations. Helping our delegates with fun extension travel plans and working with my team.

Do you have a hidden talent? What is it?

The opposite to hoarding! Organising, minimising, decluttering – to make a space feel more useable and enjoyable.

What’s your passion outside of work?

My son, Leo! 

What was your first job?

Check out chick at Safeway (aka Woolworths).


Book: Not really a book girl – but love a travel or interior design coffee table book 
Movie: Love Actually  
Song: Anything Beyonce 

Your favourite thing about Veritas Events? 

The team I work with – all incredibly passionate and driven.

What three words would your friends use to describe you?

Determined, energetic and organised.

What is your greatest client event/achievement?

Reworking/postponing the Daikin Dealer Convention 2 times, thanks to Covid. It was an awfully challenging puzzle but we got there in the end and our client/delegates loved Hayman Island & Sydney.
