Business Development ManagerI develop B2B accounts across our venue portfolio and have a specific focus on a cluster of five venues including; The Law Society, BMA House, Church House, IET, & soon to be Grays Inn (watch this space)! I specialise in corporate meetings and events. My aim is to give my accounts access to over 40 of the most prestigious venues, I give them one point of contact and streamline the venue finding process. My role is completely varied and because of the depth of our business I can offer clients ever changing products; Dawat for example is our specialty Asian cater, they create bespoke, authentic Asian cuisine. This worked really well at ZSL London Zoo where we created Indonesian dishes which matched the theme of the clients event held in the Sumatran tiger enclosure.
I studied Hospitality & Tourism Management (BA Hons) and always had the vision and passion to work in the industry. I have had the honor of selling some of the UK’s best-known landmark venues including Kew Garden, The National Gallery & The Royal Academy of Arts; this experience has given me a sound understanding of all aspects of events. Working with iconic unusual venues is what I enjoy most, the uniqueness of the buildings and trying to plan the best event that meets the clients’ needs, but also compliments the venue.
Almost impossible but joint favourite are:
BMA House because of the charming medicinal garden and just the sheer number of event spaces - 29 spaces in total!
IET London: The state of the art audio-visual technology is definitively market leader in conferencing; paired with the incredible river views overall it is a show stopper.
