Dylan Woodland

Head of Creative

What does your role entail?
Whilst jumping into the creative aspects of many projects for all areas of the company I have two core responsibilities – Business Development focusing on the Corporate side of the business, and working with the team to design and deliver creative event solutions for our clients.

How did your career start in events?
I’ve always loved music and got my first decks at 12 years old. By the age of 14 I’d established my own little business, DJing at school discos and kids parties. Over the years this developed into more than just DJing and here I am now!

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Richard Branson once told me ‘Always carry a notebook’.

Where were you working before joining Firebird?
In the Caribbean… Although there were a few too many hurricanes for my liking!

What’s your favourite venue to work at and why?
There are too many to count! I LOVE variety and working at Firebird enables me to visit some of the most spectacular venues across the UK and beyond!!

If you could travel anywhere where would you go?
Antarctica – it’s the only continent I haven’t been lucky enough to visit… I better get my jacket!!

Cars and DJing.

Who would you like to meet most?
My alter ego.

If you were an animal what would you be?
Mountain Goat… Just seems like a pretty chilled life, with a hint of danger!

Five words to describe what Dylan brings to the team…
Fun, innovation, charisma, energy and creativity!
