In the Booth: An Interview with Louis, Sales Executive

In the Booth: An Interview with Louis, Sales Executive

We sat down to talk to Louis Constantine, the newest addition to the Ministry Venues team, to tell us a little about himself and how he came into the role:

1. So, tell us a bit about yourself. How did you get into the events industry?

Coming from a background in television and film, where I had the opportunity to work on renowned shows like ‘Cold Feet’ and ‘Doctor Who’, I underwent a career transition into sales. Surprisingly, I found myself immersed in the world of weddings, which proved to be quite a challenging yet thrilling experience (a bit of a baptism of fire – events-wise). However, I quickly developed a profound passion for it, the industry is so varied and I do something different every day. Working at Ministry Venues is always very exciting – multiple venues, clients, and events.

2. What do you like to do outside of work?

I love to travel – I am always planning my next adventure somewhere new. Some of my favourite places are Crete, Laos & Vietnam. My partner is from Bermuda, so I should probably say that. Outside of travelling, I love music and food, and my number one is dogs. I have my own fur baby Stirling, who keeps me very busy.

3. What do you like most about working in the industry?

If I was to say what I like most about working in events, I would have to say not one event is the same, the same goes for clients. You have to learn to work with a host of different factors, personalities &…budgets. This dynamic environment is what makes the job incredibly enjoyable, as it continuously presents new challenges and keeps things in a state of constant change. It’s always a buzz when you manage to deliver on a special request for a client and it’s even more fun to see them enjoy it at their event.

4. If you could swap lives with anyone for a day, who would it be?

This is a hard one – I am going to say our Head of Events, Adam Quigley. Let me tell you, he has the most extensive shoe collection I have ever come across, and that’s saying a lot. Would be really fun to boss everyone around and interesting to see how he handles his workload. Wouldn’t mind a cheeky look through his kitchen cupboards – is there anything more satisfying?!

5. What have been the stand-out moments in your career?

One of the most memorable experiences in my events career was working with Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the brilliant minds behind ‘South Park Studios,’ on the original London cast of ‘Book of Mormon.’ Another remarkable moment that left me in awe was witnessing our venue undergo a breathtaking transformation for the SEGA Europe Christmas Party. It was at that moment that I realised the true MAGIC of what we do.
