Meet the Hearsay Team: Amanda Havas, Sr. Events Manager

August 3, 2017

We’re back with the latest installment of our “Meet the Hearsay Team” employee spotlight series. This time, we’re hanging out in the Big Apple with Amanda Havas, whose team is responsible for organizing the 100+ events that Hearsay participates in every year.

What do you do at Hearsay and how long have you been at the company?

I run events in North America and have been with the company for more than three years.

Favorite thing about Hearsay?

The people are what makes Hearsay an amazing place. Not only are they really smart and great at what they do, but they’re very well-rounded and have many unique talents and hobbies outside of the office, which has been fun learning about.

What’s been your favorite team-building activity?

The marketing team went to a park in San Francisco once and we all learned how to play croquet. It was a unique idea and such a great bonding experience with the team.

What Hearsay value do you embrace the most?

I embrace our GSD (Get Stuff Done) value the most. My team manages 100+ events and conferences a year, so there’s a lot going on at all times and we need to stay on top of all the moving parts.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I’m a big foodie, so you can find me navigating the streets of Brooklyn in search of the best pizza (L&B Spumoni is the winner!) or trying out the many new “hot spots” that seem to be opening weekly in Manhattan.

If you had to plan a spontaneous weekend trip, where and what would it be?

I would go out to Montauk with my husband and relax by the ocean.

Where are some places you’d recommend in New York for eats and drinks?

This is a tough question because I have so many, but I’ll give you the full rundown:

We’re getting hungry already; thanks, Amanda!
