Meet The Team: Ciara Leibel

Meet the Team is a blog feature that highlights one of Spark Event Management’s talented staff members. This month we talk to our newest recruit, Ciara Leibel, about her introduction to the world of events.

1. What is your name and position at Spark?

Ciara Leibel, Administrative/Event Assistant.

2. Where were you prior to Spark?

I spent the past four years completing my Bachelor of Commerce Degree at MacEwan University in Edmonton. When I wasn’t studying, I was travelling around the world exploring as many new countries as my four-month summer and my bank account would allow for.

3. What is the most surprising thing about the event industry?

The hours that event staff dedicate to their work is remarkable! No perk of working in the event industry – travelling to new cities, listening to high-profile speakers, meeting new people – comes without endless hours of email correspondence, client meetings, mail merging, menu selections, registration inquiries, print deadlines, and list goes on and on…

4. What is something most people don’t know about you?

I love to play crib!

5. Describe yourself in three words.

Honest. Driven. Adventurous.

6. Better yet – describe yourself in one song!

Don’t Worry, Be Happy – Bobby McFerrin

7. What does a typical ‘day in the life’ look like?

There are no ‘typical’ days when you work for a small business. I have spent the day sitting at my desk responding to registration inquiries and following up with sponsors, and I have also spent the day driving across the city looking for six inch teal ribbon and giant golden scissors.

8. What is the best thing about your job?

You can’t beat the flexibility of being able to work remotely!

9. When you’re not at work, where can we find you?

Likely outdoors! If I am not playing soccer, there is a good chance I’m running along the bow river or on my way out to the mountains for a hike.

10. What do you want people to know about Spark that they might not know from the website?

The Spark team is comprised of the most dedicated, high-performing women I have ever worked with. There are no boundaries when it comes to the level of support our team offers one another, both in and out of the office. It is a privilege to work with and learn from such talented ladies!
