“I started with the Customer Service team at Insomnia, where I was warmly welcomed by my Team Leaders and the other volunteers. A few events later, I expressed my interest into Stages and Content; the Insomnia Team helped me with this every step of the way – from not knowing much about stage production, I have been taught and mentored into becoming the Assistant Producer for the Insomnia Stage. Everyone within Player1 Events is willing to help you grow and learn. Becoming a volunteer has given me so many opportunities beyond just Insomnia; it has given me life skills and I wouldn’t change it for anything. Also, you get the chance to make amazing friends and memories.”
– Jordan Holmes (Customer Support & Stage Content Teams volunteer, i58 – i64)
“Volunteering for Insomnia Gaming Festival has been so rewarding. As a Team Lead I’ve been able to give my feedback on many aspects of the event, from guest experience to event operations and logistics, I’ve always felt that my voice has been heard and my opinions matter. Three years and counting, I’m now surrounded by an awesome group of friends and an even better set of colleagues! As a Youth Worker in my day-to-day life, I attend Insomnia not just for the gaming but to be part of an all-inclusive cohesive community of people, in an environment where it’s just okay to be who you are or want to be.”
– Lewis Collins (Customer Support Team volunteer, i57 – i65, Team Leader i61 – i65)
