Joey Fuller

Job title: Account Executive

Born in: Salisbury

Qualifications: Degree in International Hospitality Management BSc (Hons)

History: From a paper round at 13 years old; Waitrose cashier; HR Administrator to qualified event enthusiast!

Experience: Joey’s customer service skills developed early when she worked on the tills at Waitrose for almost 3 years.
She later embarked on a career in Human Resources at Help for Heroes where she singled-handed modernised their processes and helped implement a new software.
It was here that Joey got involved with organising their staff Christmas party which involved transforming their old warehouse into Narnia on a limited budget- a challenging but rewarding experience to say the least!
The seed was sown and Joey then embarked on a 4 year course at Oxford Brookes, including a 1 year placement in London organising children’s parties and large corporate events.
Before TMB Joey worked at one of Oxford Universities largest colleges organising all their internal events and external conferences.

Biggest challenge: Trying to keep my cool when I shook the hand of Prince Harry-aah!

Something you didn’t know: pranked a past colleague when I signed him up for Ant & Dec’s “I’m A Celebrity, Get Out Of My Ear”. I told him he needed to meet a VIP client to help organise their children’s party. He was met with Peter and Abbey Clancy at a decoy house where they were messing around and acting strangely because Ant & Dec were asking them to do silly things from an ear piece!
