As part of my role at Historic Royal Palaces, I pride myself on identifying and filling gaps in team activity and skills, whether that’s developing an events based social media strategy, producing a multi-venue promotional video, or negotiating event partnerships to devise a multi-palace promotional weekend. We have lots of exciting plans in the pipeline over the next few years, which I can’t wait to see come to fruition.”
Liz Young, Head of Events a Historic Royal Palaces, who nominated Milan, adds: “We are thrilled that Milan has received this recognition, which he thoroughly deserves. Milan has made a real and measurable difference both financially and personally within the Historic Royal Palaces events department with his consistent hard work and infectious passion.
