Olympia London's Conference Co-ordinator wins Young Persons award

12 Mar 2015

Olympia London's Events and Conference Co-ordinator, Lucy Brackpool, has been awarded the Emprise Young Persons Award by the Institute of Entertainment and Arts Management (IEAM).

The annual award ceremony recognises the work of young people under the age of 30 who have been nominated by their managers for going that extra mile in their job. Lucy Brackpool, who is a valued member of the Olympia London Conference Centre's four strong team, saw off competition from candidates in the live entertainment, events and performing arts management industries.

Head of Conferences, Sarah Elton-Wall, said: "Since joining us in July 2014, Lucy is thriving in her position at Olympia London Conference Centre. She is a willing, enthusiastic and competent member of the team who is quickly establishing herself as a consummate professional."

Lucy Brackpool is a graduate of the internship programme at Olympia London. After successfully completing her placement year at the venue, she was offered a full time role on graduation from her studies in Events Management at Leeds Beckett university. 

She joins alumni of Emprise award winners from Olympia London including Rosalind Cooke, Conference and Event Manager and Jazmin Beale, Head of Marketing. Young talent is fostered and encouraged to flourish at the West London venue and they are prime examples.

The Emprise Services sponsored awards ceremony took place on Friday 6 March at Browns, Covent Garden, London.
