Getting to know Grace...

What’s your favourite film?
Tough one! I love action/thrillers, but definitely enjoy watching a good chick flick every now and then.
What’s your favourite book?
Probably either The Twelve by Justin Cronin or Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.
What telly are you addicted to?
At the moment I'm really into the US version of The Office, SAS: Who Dares Wins and The Bridge.
Where would you most like to be right now?
On a beach somewhere, in the sun, with a good book and a beer.
What’s your favourite sport to watch or play?
I used to play hockey and really miss it. Favourite sports to watch would be Rugby and Football, but I will watch anything if there is a good atmosphere!
What’s the best thing about Manchester?
The food! There is always somewhere new to try - usually the places which are a bit more hidden on quieter streets are the best.
Tell us about your pet
He is a gorgeous Cockerpoo called Dylan. He is 4 years old but still thinks he is a puppy, and has no concept of personal space.
Which of HGA's values means the most to you?
'Our glass is always half full' I love this one. It can be easy to get swept up into the stress of the events industry but here at HGA having that glass half full attitude can turn a tough day into a really successful, happy one.
What's the best thing about working in events / venue finding?
Working in Events and venue sourcing means no two days or projects are the same. It is one of the most sociable industries to work in and I love building relationships with clients and venues alike. I also love having a look around venues and exploring new places, which means venue sourcing is a perfect role!”
Finish this sentence: I can usually be spotted in the office...
Wearing a big scarf and drinking tea or snacking
