My first jobs
In June 2017, I graduated as an event and project manager.
Here you can read a bit more about my first experiences in the workingfield.
October 2017 - now
KPMG Tax & Legal Advisers
I am the management assistant of the indirect tax managers and directors of the Antwerp office. They mostly work on VAT and customs related matters. I support them in their day-to-day obligations which can go from transferring calls and setting up meetings to preparing their billing. I also help with some corporate compliance. This mostly concerns the TP-filings and the tax reports.
Tomorrowland is like a fairytale and my team keeps the magic alive. I am responsible of some of the teams that keep Tomorrowland clean. In 2017, it was my first time, so I still had a lot to learn. This year I'm going back and I will be more prepared!
In my last year studying event and project management at Karel de Grote-Hogeschool,
I had my first encounters with the workingworld through my internships.
Communication & event manager intern
March - July 2017
I did my internship at Miramiro vzw. I was the main contact person between Miramiro and the artists. I had to collect all the information in order to book the hotels, bikes and meals. I also participated in making the program, the website and I managed their Instagram page.
During the festival I will go back as a payed employee. I will assist the event- and communication managers.
Event supervisor intern
January - March 2017
My first internship took place in the beautiful surroundings of the Antwerp ZOO, Planckendael and the brand-new Queen Elisabeth hall. My week was divided in two. I spend three days a week in the office. I translated the technical rider of the QEH. I made the event book with the financial charts and also made a first version of the guidelines of the QEH.
The other two days of the week, I supported the event coordinators during the events. I assisted on a big range of events: concerts, diners, receptions, gala evenings, a wedding and much more. I really enjoyed spending time on the floor. The longer I worked there, the more they trusted me. For the event "ZOO of Life", I was in charge of managing the concert hall.
