Shelby Dixon

What is your role?

Sustainability & Community Coordinator

I see the main point of my job as an opportunity to reduce our reliance on greenhouse gases and chemicals, and waste we put out into the world.  This role also gives me the opportunity to help elevate farmers, environmentalists and other local organizations that have been doing the work. 

Please describe a truly successful day for you

A successful day includes realizing an accomplishment at work such as pushing through an initiative or a culture change that reduces our environmental impact.  Then, if I get the chance to do some exercise as well as cooking and sharing a good meal, I’ve had a successful day.

Tell us about the time you spend outside of work

I spend a lot of time outside in nature.  I’m also an avid gardener, I love to cook, and I love to read.

What is one thing you would like to do that you’ve never done before?

I would like to dive coral reefs throughout the world.  

What is the most memorable music gig you’ve ever attended?

I saw Jenny Lewis on her first solo tour at Firestone in Orlando. It was on a small stage with no dressing room, so she had to do multiple costume changes behind an amp! I was a teenager, and it was so awesome to see a female performer from such a successful band (Rilo Kiley) who had broken out on her own to give such an impressive performance.  It was on a simple stage with no bells and whistles, and she just made it happen! 

What are 3 words you would use to describe the venue group?

Innovative, Creative, Experience-driven.

Rafael Marques

What is your role?

General Manager The Arches, formerly known as Arch 33 and Food Arch – currently under renovation.

Please describe a truly successful day for you

A perfect day is when team morale is at its highest and the communication links are smooth and strong starting from the first approach of a client through all steps until delivery.  When this happens, everything is clear and work just flows. We anticipate the client’s needs, exceed their expectations and all customers and colleagues are very, very happy!

Tell us about the time you spend outside of work

I have made many very good friends in the Hospitality world, and I love to visit my friends at different places to try new meals and drinks.  Going to concerts is also a big part of my life.  I love to go to different venues and see how they operate, take in the atmosphere, and watch how the service flows. 

What is the most memorable music gig you’ve ever attended? 

There is a massive range in the types of music I like, so it’s tough to pick one!  It was probably the Maccabees – I saw them at Omeara a few years back.  It was their very last show, and this was a band with such a huge fan base so the place was packed with no room to move. The atmosphere was vibrant and so full of energy – such a special moment. 

What is one thing you would like to do that you’ve never done before?

I’ve got such a deep knowledge of the music industry that one day I would love to have a role in the business.  I could work together with a record label, organising concerts or discovering talent.  I’m so passionate about music that I think I could succeed!

What are 3 words you would use to describe the venue group?

Patient – My colleagues are very patient with me and I can always ask questions without a fear of being judged.

Generous – we always try to generate funds for charity or community efforts like raising money for venues that are close to closing. The company is generous in so many ways.

Adaptable – Having been with the company for quite some time, I have seen us face different challenges and change to meet them.  We are always able to make swift transitions and adapt, really to anything.

What is your role?

Finance Assistant

Please describe a truly successful day for you

A successful day at work means getting all the payments and accounts processed, following up on any enquiries from our vendors and keeping the accounts updated.  Also, it’s when I have great interactions with colleagues.

Tell us about the time you spend outside of work

I am either at the gym, playing football, or sometimes playing video games to relax.

What is the most memorable music gig you’ve ever attended? 

This is most likely the Wizkid – Made in Lagos concert I went to last year.  This was the first concert I went to after lockdown. It had a very good atmosphere and vibes, and of course music that I loved!

What is one thing you would like to do that you’ve never done before?

I would like to go skydiving, it’s always something I’ve had on the bucket list as I used to be scared of heights. Ahhh.
