Fridays with the Fun Experts - Alex
Your Fun Expert name?
How long have you been a Fun Expert?
Will be entering into my third year this summer
How would you describe your role at Sunshine Events?
As a 'Fun Expert' the role tends to encompass many things. Most days it involves setting up and running events to ensure all guests enjoy themselves. On other days, it can involve being behind the scenes cleaning and fixing equipment to make sure all gear is top quality
What is your favourite food?
If you could give a piece of advice to a Fun Expert just starting out, what would it be?
Don't be afraid to ask questions, no one is going to bite your head off. We've all been in your position before and asking about stuff you are unsure about makes the whole team stronger
What is your go-to song and why?
I don't have a select "go-to song" but I'd say in general I usually go for Disney or musicals, it never fails to liven up long van journeys
What has been your favourite event so far?
Lancaster University. Providing a rodeo sheep for a country-themed on-campus club night. Everyone was really friendly and surprisingly competitive! Plus they didn't mind that I study at York University (and that is a strong rivalry)
What is your favourite equipment at Sunshine Events and why?
How do you like to spend your free time?
I'm a tropical fish keeper so that takes up a reasonable portion of my free time, but I also play the bass guitar and enjoy reading
What is your favourite part about being a Fun Expert?
Getting to see the country. From Scotland to the deep south, I can now say I've been to most places in the UK!
