Stuart Buchanan

General Manager
Canberra, ACT

As General Manager of the Australian Capital Territory region, I work to build a skilled team who drive quality delivery and event outcomes which exceed our client’s expectations.

In my 20 years working with Encore, I have held numerous roles as AESM, ESM, Account Manager, Sales Manager and Event Director and previous to joining Encore as a Studio Technician, AV Technician and Event Organiser.

This diverse experience enables me to understand every aspect of event delivery and has taught me how imperative teamwork is when it comes to achieving our clients’ end objectives.

As a leader, I believe that effective communication at all levels is crucial, from understanding our clients’ brief and event design right through to the production of the completed event.

The favourite aspect of my role has always been collaborating with the team to create unrivalled experiences for our clients and their audiences. When we are all actively involved in the project at hand, there is no limit to what we can create.
