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.
Why did I join Criterion? For the opportunity to learn and develop news skill to help with my career. It also looked like a fun working environment.
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!
I joined Criterion for a new challenge and a step up in my career.
