Meet Fran – Marketing and Events Coordinator

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here so far, everyone is incredibly friendly and supportive"

What’s your background?

Before joining UKCloud I studied Event Management at the University of Winchester. After University I spent 6 months travelling around the world, I am now looking to pursue my career in Events

What brought you to UKCloud?

There were a few drivers in joining UKCloud, the role fits my ambitions but also UKCloud is growing and expanding rapidly and I thought it would be an exciting time to be a part of UKCloud’s journey.

What work are you excited about now?

I have only recently just joined UKCloud and there is already lots to get involved with. I am excited to be putting on my first event for UKCloud, the NHS expo in September. There are lots more event in the pipeline such as UKCloud annual reception at the Tower of London and I can’t wait to put an event on at such an amazing venue!

What does your day to day look like?

Day to day I am responsible for handling all aspects of event from pre-event planning, to event logistics and post event analysis. There is a lot to learn but the team is supportive in getting you up to speed. There is ongoing training and I have just started my Salesforce and Pardot training.

What is your ambition for you and your team? Inc. technologies

My ambition is to grow with the company. As UKCloud grows the number and size of the events we are attending and putting on will continue to expand. In the future my ambition is to manage an events team and develop my leadership capabilities in that respect.

What piece of advice would you give to someone looking to join UKCloud?

I would encourage people to be a part of UKCloud’s growing community – I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here so far, everyone is incredibly friendly and supportive.
