Who are you? Loes Potgieter, born in Kampen and moved to Haarlem at the age of 17 to study. Here I live with my boyfriend and enjoy my friends, terraces and the sea at Zandvoort. Creative DIY projects, singing and houseplants make my heart beat faster.
What is your professional background? After completing my degree in Media & Entertainment Management, I gained experience as a project manager at various branches within the event industry, such as a conference venue, food truck festival, advertising agency and live communication agency. I currently work for 2.5 years at Dr2 Events & Campaigns as a project manager and I supervise our interns. I am also a member of the G14, a knowledge and network organisation for young professionals from the event industry.
What do you mainly do at Dr2 Events? As a project manager I take care of projects from A to Z. Sometimes individually, but usually together in a team. My daily activities are liaising with clients and subcontractors, coordination and planning the project, providing expert advice, finance, production, exportation and evaluation of the project.
What are your passions in the event world? Conveying the message of the event to the visitor in a creative and impactful way. Standard is just as standard. Thinking out-of-the-box, the sky is the limit!
Who will you give the baton to? I pass the baton to Marloes. My neighbour in the office.
