Meet the team: Lorelle Chittick
Lorelle Chittick joined the Brisbane Business Events team in January 2005 and is the Senior Manager, Convention Services, responsible for leading the Membership, Famils and Events and Convention Promotion teams within the team.
My role with Brisbane Economic Development Agency involves:
Leading the Convention Services area of Brisbane Business Events which encompasses the Membership, Familarisation and Events and Conference Promotion teams. My role involves working with the General Manager of the Business Events team to deliver strategic business development direction and key activities which ultimately drives economic prosperity for Brisbane.
The most enjoyable aspect of my role is:
Being at the forefront of Brisbane’s business events industry and playing a part in shaping Brisbane’s future. I enjoy working with our stakeholders, members and clients on a daily basis to ensure Brisbane prospers from the efforts of the team at Brisbane EDA – not only in the business events sector which the Business Events team champions, but also within the other business units that make up the organisation.
To be successful in the conventions services field you must be able to:
Build strong relationships, have true passion for your product and a great work ethic. We work incredibly hard in the team but the rewards come from having happy clients and seeing Brisbane soar.
What excites me most about the business events scene in Brisbane is:
The city’s new infrastructure developments, combined with an increase in our experience-based products and operators is seeing Brisbane accelerate in its appeal as a place to meet and do business.
It’s an exciting time to be in Brisbane!
One place I like to visit when I am in Brisbane is:
Anywhere along the banks of the Brisbane River. I love to be by the water.
My favourite time of year in Brisbane is:
I love winter in Brisbane. Sunny, blue-sky days and crisp evenings with fantastic sunsets. Our winter weather is the envy of the rest of Australia!
Winter also signals a number of my favourite Brisbane events – State of Origin, Brisbane Racing Carnival, Regional Flavours and of course the EKKA!
When I’m not at work you’ll find me:
Outdoors and by the water – bay or beach!
One country I would like to visit but have never been to is:
Maldives – it screams pure relaxation!
