Director of Events, Fairmont Empress Hotel, Victoria. B.C.
Lynsee Yee has used her poise and problem-solving skills to tackle even the toughest challenges put in front of her on her way to becoming the director of Events at the Fairmont Empress Hotel.
As part of her responsibilities, she runs more than 100,000 sq. ft. of event space at both the Fairmont Empress and The Victoria Conference Centre. It’s a tall task for someone so young, but Yee has risen to the occasion, impressing her superiors from the first time they interviewed her.
During her time at the Fairmont Empress, Yee has collected multiple awards for her department and earned the respect of her colleagues in a short period of time.
“Lynsee handles last-minute changes with ease and grace and always has a back-up plan. Her leadership style is confident, fair but firm and professional, showing empathy when needed and a wonderful sense of humour,” as says Lisa Klimek, former director of Conference Services and Catering, Fairmont Empress Hotel.
