Event Planet’s Monique O’Callaghan – Young Australian Event Manager of the Year

  • Monique O’Callaghan – Young Achiever of the Year
  • From part-time Intern to award-winning Event Producer in 5 short years

Monique beat four impressive finalists to take the honour of the Australian Event Award’s Young Australian Event Manager of the Year.

5 years in the making, Monique has an unwavering commitment to hard work and a passion and talent for Event Management in all its forms. Starting in Event Planet’s Intern Program, Monique was able to build a strong foundation that led to her becoming an Event Co-Ordinator and shortly after was promoted to Event Manager.

Now an Event Producer and senior member of the Event Planet Team, Monique manages a stable of blue-chip clients as well as mentoring junior staff and pitching for new business.

This award recognises Monique’s event design and production skills, her generous mentorship of others and excellence in all aspects of her work and personal development.




“I believe Monique O’Callaghan was an outstanding candidate for Young Achiever of the Year for her event design and production skills, her generous mentorship of others and, ultimately, because she is a high-achieving, young ambassador of the Australian event industry!

We are delighted that she has been recognised by the Australian Event Awards for her dedication and achievement. ”
