This is a great place to work to help grow you career wise & as a person. Wonderful, diverse team who all help contribute to the expansion of the company & the growing amount of events. Lots of travel opportunities & all your feedback is taken on by senior management ensuring your heard in the workplace. Great opportunities for career progression.
nothing explicitly comes to mind as a con

I think the company is an exciting place to work! The team is made of great people, creative thinking is definitely encouraged and development opportunities are widely available. Senior managers are forward-thinking people with many ideas and exciting projects. They care a lot about the team's engagement and provide plenty of learning opportunities. I would say there is no limit to how much you can learn and you are given a lot of autonomy to make things happen. You are surrounded by bright, likeminded people who are always there if you need help.
It is fast paced and priorities can quickly change. I personally wouldn't label it as con as it gives you an opportunity to work on a variety of projects.

Let's start with the product. As somebody whose entire role was to sell events in the eCommerce space, a notoriously saturated market within the events business, it made my life a whole lot easier when the product is definitely the best in the market - with plenty of reviews to testify this. The USPs are fantastic and executed perfectly and that really helped convey a natural sense of belief in my pitches. Now the team. The founders are veterans in both the events industry, but also as entrepreneurs meaning that if you're an ambitious person, willing to learn from successful people - this really is a golden opportunity for you. The CEO is an extremely skilled communicator and educator and is more than willing to pass on his wisdom. Within the team there is an open minded atmosphere. Whether it's your first day on the job or whether you own the company, every suggestion is heard and discussed. I found myself surprised at much influence my opinion I had over certain company decisions that would have traditionally been out of my remit at most other companies.
For all the excitement of being part of a global small business. the one con I would mention is the lack of a social element. This being said, however, I am aware that there will be a large company expansion in the coming year. Combine all the new team members with the new office in buzzing Shoreditch, this should not be a problem much longer!

The best things about working at Savant were the people, the opportunity for personal growth and development, and the quality of the events produced. The heads of the company are inspiring, hardworking and supportive - you want to work hard for them, because you see how hard they are working. There is a very open culture - if you don't know something, that's OK, just ask! If you have an idea - it will be heard. The quality of the events speak for themselves. While Savant has only been around a few years, they already have many loyal supporters who are leaders in their fields and always attend!!
There was really only one downside to working at Savant for me, which was that the offices were out of London. However, the offices moved to Central London in late 2016, so that's no longer an issue!

I really enjoyed my time there in sales. The team is passionate about what they do and that's infectious. Friendly team, and management are always accessible and happy to help. The Savant team are all about delivering engaging fun events all over Europe with a growing loyal following. Great place to work if you want to travel Europe, meet inspirational people and come away from each event knowing that you are part of something special that shapes the way movers and shakers within the industry think. Small team with an excellent product which means it can only grow.
It's a small team so you have to have a good work ethic. This is not really a con because to be rewarded you need to put some time in.

My time at Savant Events was educational but more so enjoyable; travelling across Europe, a management who is supportive and an awesome team! Great company!
Not one comes to mind.

Savant is a young company which means lots of great things — there’s a small, enthused team; there’s a warm working atmosphere; there’s an openness to new ideas. Both of the bosses are very kind and approachable, which is helpful - since it’s a small company, you’ll be working in close proximity to senior management. There’s also tons of perks: the offices themselves are both well-located in central Berlin and London and provide the usual funky setting you’d expect from WeWork locations and the job itself also requires a fair bit of travelling, which meant I got to visit everywhere from Amsterdam to Stockholm and to get paid for the privilege. The people who attend the conferences themselves are also easy to spend time with - they were younger and more down to earth than I’d expected for business conferences - which made it easy to implement them into the marketing.
However, like all companies, there were a few minor downsides at play. Possibly because it is such a young company, it could occasionally be difficult to persuade management to stick to a long-term strategy when they didn’t see immediate dividends from doing so. This could be tricky in a marketing role where a lot of benefits surrounding brand-building are largely invisible in the short term. It also could feel difficult to deliver negative feedback about aspects of the events to management, who sometimes took constructive criticism personally. This occasionally made it challenging to improve on (the already high quality) events. However, these were just small things that I think the company could improve upon — overall, my experience at Savant was a great one.
