Job Title: Event Coordinator
Type: Full Time Role
Location: Nashville preferred, but majority of work will be performed remotely.
Compensation: Salary + Full Benefit Package
Harris III and his team at Istoria Collective are seeking an events-focused leader to help in our next chapter of growth, by assisting with the execution of transformative experiences for the clients and communities we serve.
Istoria is a collective of brands with multi-tiered offerings. When you combine the events of Harris, STORY, Solo Con, ISEP (The International Society for Experiential Professionals), the Inner Circle and more, plus include virtual events, there are 100+ events each year, often-times multiple events happening each week simultaneously.
Many of these events carry a very small workload like advancing an event with a client and making travel reservations, and a few of these events are quite complex, like a full-scale, multi-day conference with 30 presenters and 1,000+ attendees from global brands.
To be responsible for the details and logistics of each of these events, you will need to be highly detail-oriented with strong communication skills, gifted at project management and anticipate solutions to unexpected problems. You’ll help a very wide variety of events run smoothly, ranging from virtual and in-person conferences, high-end retreats, trainings, workshops and much more.
You’ll need the pre-existing travel experience that enables you to book and coordinate travel details and itineraries without stress, and leave no detail overlooked in order to ensure that our presenters can focus on serving our clients and attendees well. You must be amazing at scheduling and calendaring.
At times, this role will feel like you’re partly serving as an Administrative or Executive Assistant to multiple visionary leaders, but the focus of this role is on the events they’re leading or participating in.
No event will be exactly the same, and you will need to adapt and grow as our businesses expand. Harris is a visionary leader, and therefore he and his partners are a constant source of big ideas and high expectations. While you are not responsible for designing and creating each event, you will need to make these events reach their fullest potential by helping bring their creative visions to life.
If, like us, you love the feeling of a well planned and coordinated event that serves as a transformative experience for all involved, and agree that there’s nothing else quite like that feeling in the world, then this Event Coordinator role may be for you.
The Impact You'll Make
We're mission-minded and purpose-driven.
This Event Coordinator role will directly contribute to fulfilling our vision of becoming the most powerful force for transforming the future through the power of story.
Through your unique logistical and detail-oriented super powers, you'll have a direct impact on the world through the creation and execution of multiple live experiences each year, presented both in-person and online. From curating conference-style events owned by our company, to creative consulting for special projects for amazing clients, to life-changing coaching programs and online communities, you'll be an integral part of Harris and Istoria's transformative work.
This work is experienced by a very diverse audience. You'll be part of inspiring artists, creators, freelancers and all other types of storytellers to do their best, most creative work. You'll help play a role in shifting the narrative of mental and emotional health in the world at large through our work with ISEP. You'll help creative entrepreneurs and solopreneurs build the future by building their businesses through purpose-driven work through Solo Con. You'll help us serve leaders from global brands like Apple, Disney, Google, and so many more, alongside some of the coolest non-profits in the world, and even government agencies like NASA.
This role will require a unique set of skills that are imperative to growing and scaling our work. Because we're a small team, there will be actions taken by you that will directly impact the future growth and vision of the company.
