Meet Samantha

Samantha Joylab
The Elephant Wrestler Event & Experience Manager

Samantha’s 10+ years of experience in hospitality has taken her from the shoreside locals of Pauanui to the fine-dining circles of Auckland City, as well as a 2 year stint working with Simon Gault including at a villa in Italy. She knows the ins, outs, sides, and secrets of running a buttery-smooth event, which enabled her to help raise over $30,000 at a recent long lunch for Big Buddy New Zealand.

She finds joy in watching others laugh, smile and connect at the events she holds; but also finds it in the outdoors. She’d love to pop a good stout with Richard Branson and chat about how to treat people to create good in business, which she knows all-too well after spending 8 years in pilates and kinesiology (she even helped Kees Meeuws recover from a back injury so he could play for the All Blacks again). All to say, she understands the wellbeing of people better than most - and putting people together even more.
