Head of IT and Systems Development
Why did I join Criterion? Four months after the business started one of the Founders asked me to set up the IT infrastructure and resolve some key IT issues (my wife was also a Founder, so really what I did was join the family business!)
Why did I join Criterion? From working in venues I was keen to experience the client side of events and criterion offered a perfect opportunity for me. I loved the look of the company culture and the emphasis on employees are not just a number.
Enquiries Sales Executive
Why did I join Criterion? I joined Criterion Conferences because of all the wonderful things I had heard from my previous colleagues who worked with me previously in my old role. Criterion is the best place to work, it has a great atmosphere and everyone will always offer help and guidance when needed.
Delegate Sales Campaign Manager
Why did I join Criterion? I was recommended by a friend
Matt van Gend
Why did I join Criterion? I was fresh out of uni with a design degree and wanted to get my foot in the door and Criterion was cool enough to give me a shot!
Customer Care Manager
Why did I join Criterion?One of my housemates was working on the data team when I first moved to Australia and always talked about how fun his new company was. When he mentioned there was a job opening, I hopped on the opportunity to apply!
Why did I join Criterion? I heard a lot of good things about the company from a few people I knew already worked here and wanted to try it out for myself.
Senior Producer and Team Leader
Why did I join Criterion? I wanted to combine my passion for research and knowledge sharing with something practical that would actually make a difference. My role at Criterion allows me to do this by identifying some of the big changes happening across our key industries, and creating tailored conferences that bring practical solutions to our delegates.
Senior Sponsorship Manager
Why did I join Criterion? I joined Criterion because my clients were telling me that they were getting a lot of value from intimate, specific forums rather than large expo’s. I reviewed the entire conference industry and Criterion stood out because we only run demand-based conferences about specific problems and issues. My sponsorship customers enjoy our events because they get a lot of “face time” with decision makers who have paid to be there.
At the time, I was looking for opportunities to compliment my university education. Criterion Conferences had a vacant position and I thought it would be a great opportunity to find out more about the organisation. From the moment I stepped into the doors, I knew that Criterion would be a perfect fit!
Criterion Corporate Giving Committee
With the growth of our organisation and our core values of Quality, Energy, Leadership and Innovation, we aim to raise awareness and make a difference to causes close to our hearts through a series of events, with a major focus on having fun!
