A nice system 

The assignments in the Press Centre are many, but first and foremost it is about helping the press workers who arrives in Herning and attend the event during the days.  

“Daily I work in digital marketing and before I have worked as a volunteer at smaller national humanity events. I have no experience with this type of event, but it has been easy to navigate and the system here is very good. The communication in the team and the way to manage the assignments is just right”, Kelli says.
