A day in the life...

A day in the life...

...of Polly Harrison, sales & marketing manager for hospitality and events at the American Express Community Stadium.

9am Check my emails and prioritise my day. Check my diary for any site tours of the stadium and dig out my wellies and hard hat if required!


9.15am Get together with my team over a brew to discuss the day ahead. Brainstorm any ideas for forthcoming events. We are currently planning our Christmas Party Season for 2011


10am Client meeting most days I am meeting local companies to discuss their meeting and events needs for the new stadium.


12pm Site tour I love showing potential clients our new stadium. As the building is still under construction its important to be able to paint a picture of the great interior design and facilities.

1.30pm Lunch. Working with a catering team has its advantages. We are often asked by local suppliers to sample their wares.


2.30pm Marketing update we are currently building our brand new website for the stadium www.amexstadium.co.uk


4pm Wedding planning meeting Our first wedding will be held at the stadium in July.


5.30pm Action anything that has come up during the day and head home to my partner Steve to enjoy dinner we are real foodies!
