We’re excited to introduce this week’s Event 360 Teammate Spotlight. Enjoy a glimpse into the personal and professional life of Nicole Weathers!
Position: Consumer Marketing Manager
Start Year: 2016
What job did you hold right before you came to work at Event 360? I was working for a facial plastic surgeon.
Was there anything in particular that brought you to Event 360? The job description itself seemed so exciting with a lot of room to grow, learn and develop both personally and professionally. Then when I went to the website that pretty much sealed the deal for me. Looking at the team pictures I just felt connected in a way.
If you weren’t working at Event 360 what would you be doing? Hmmm, great question… I would say probably working as my brother’s partner to grow his interior design firm. Interior design is a bit of a hobby/passion of mine that I’ve recently discovered and I enjoy it!
Favorite part of your job? The people – hands down. Everyone has been so warm and welcoming and it feels like everyone is on the same team striving towards the same goal. To be out on-event made all of that come to life. Seeing people attack jobs and get things accomplished that they wouldn’t typically do in their day-to-day was awesome to experience and see.
What do you like to do in your free time? In my free time, I like to research design trends both interior and fashion, try new restaurants, hang out with friends and family and kiss and hug my 4-year-old nephew as much as possible!
Most memorable event experience? Well, I’ve only had one so far and I would say the entire thing! I was fortunate enough to work with a bunch of great volunteers who were really connected to the DAV cause, which was great to see. I also enjoyed being out there with my team as it allowed us the ability to see each other not just in our typical roles.
You’re showing off your hometown to a friend who has never been to visit before. What’s on your must see/do/eat list? Wow, that’s a tough one. Hmmm… I would say a must see would be one of the artist lofts so Lacuna Artist Lofts or Zhou B or possibly the Chicago Cultural Center or MCA. Depending on what they like to do I would say we should go to a Bulls game or whatever sport they’re into since Chicago is such a sports-centric city. To eat, I would say my favorite ramen place, Jinya! I absolutely love ramen and I always want to take people from out of town to a ramen place here!
On event, what three things are we guaranteed to find in your bag? My EOS lip balm, sunglasses and a water bottle
One word to describe Event 360? Impactful.
