About Gary Callinan:

I wanted to share a bit about my journey with you.

Currently, I'm the proud owner of Hey You Brands, a venture that has been my anchor through

the twists and turns of the pandemic and some challenging financial times.

While running my own show has been incredibly fulfilling, I've come to a point where I'm

yearning for a bit more stability and long-term security—for both myself and my family.

So, here I am, eagerly looking to transition into a full-time role.

Before my Hey You Brands adventure, I was the Design Manager at We Love This and before

that, Make Events. It was there that I honed my skills in event design and management. The

autonomy of self-employment has been fantastic, but now, I'm drawn to the stability and

camaraderie that a traditional employment setup offers.

My background in orchestrating the visual aspects of events, coupled with my knack for

branding, design, and digital communication, makes me a perfect fit for a dynamic team like

yours. I've led projects from start to finish, collaborating with a fantastic network of

suppliers and freelancers to ensure top-notch results. My passion for fresh perspectives and

innovative approaches aligns seamlessly with my goal of creating memorable and impactful


I'm genuinely excited about the prospect of diving back into a team-oriented environment

where I can bring my skills and dedication to contribute to the success of a larger

organisation. My unique experience in both independent and corporate settings equips me

with a versatile and adaptive approach that I'm eager to bring to your team.

I'd love the chance to chat more about how my background aligns with your organisation's

goals and how I can play a part in its continued success. Thank you for considering my

application, I can't wait for the possibility of being a valuable addition to your team!

Warm regards,
