Next up: Ivo Lavrijssen
Hi! Who are you and what’s your role?
Hello! My name is Ivo Lavrijssen and I am project manager at Unlimited Productions since June 2021.
How did you end up at Unlimited Productions?
During the first outbreak of the corona pandemic, I lost my job with my previous employer. After a short period of temporary work, I decided to look for a new challenge within the event industry. I just lost my heart to the event industry. After a cup of coffee and some good conversations at Unlimited Productions, I started my new job challenge and here we are!
Can you tell us a bit about your day?
Every day at work is different. For example, since last month I am busy working on the production of UEFA Futsal EURO 2022. Most of the time I am at the production location, Ziggo Dome Amsterdam, to lead the project proceedings including construction of the whole futsal playing field setup, preparing all show elements and finally disassembling the setup. In the meantime, I’m already preparing for the projects to come later this year such as sport event Rotterdam Marathon, festival Live on the Beach, various corporate events and many more.
What’s the best part of your job?
The variety of projects really appeals to me. Every production is different. Besides, I am involved in every project from the very beginning to the end result. Our project process always starts by sketching ideas. Ideas become tangible and then we start building. An empty location completely transforms in an amazing, unique production in its kind while building.
What makes working for Unlimited Productions so great?
Working in a great team with specialists and the diversity of projects. Furthermore, of course the ’’Brabantse gezelligheid’’, as we would say in Dutch.
What makes Unlimited Productions different from other technical production companies?
Most of our productions are unique and one of a kind. Moreover, as a company we have extensive knowledge within the event industry and the team consists of motivated people, each with their own specialism. That ensures that I learn from my colleagues every day. I can always ask them for advice to achieve the best and most efficient end result!
What has been your favorite Unlimited Production or proceedings so far?
UEFA Futsal EURO 2022, for sure. UEFA Futsal is the biggest sport event I’ve been working on so far. Working together with leading clients such as the KNVB and UEFA during this project made it even more fun.
What do you do in your free time?
In my free time I really like to play field hockey, love to barbecue and cook for friends and I like to take long walks with our dog!
What inspires you?
I get inspired by friends and colleagues who achieve great goals in their lives. It motivates me to learn and develop myself, to achieve new goals in my own life.
If you did not do your current job, what would you like to do?
I committed myself to the Unlimited adventure, so I hope I can be part of the team for many more years to come. If I didn’t start at Unlimited Productions, I would probably have started with something completely different, like opening my own lunchroom or something like that.
What is one word that you would use to describe your team (or our company)?
What’s your go-to productivity trick?
Do not think in terms of problems, but look for solutions.
Please come up with a question for your colleague that we will interview next.
