Business Development ManagerMy role is to drive proactive sales through to our vast venue portfolio. With three BDM’s within the team we have our own key focus venues: mine include East Wintergarden, ZSL London Zoo, Kew Gardens, Guildhall and the Historic Royal Palaces. I enjoy building long lasting relationships through networking, FAM trips and face to face opportunities, I introduce new ideas and venues to both existing and new clients.
Food food food (!) this is my ultimate passion, I have been working in the catering industry for five years but specifically in business development. It means I get to try, taste and enjoy new dishes and ingredients with clients all the time. I get a buzz showcasing the creativity we have within the kitchens in such spectacular venue settings. Previous to this I had a seven-year career in food television (yes food again!), producing well known cookery shows for BBC1, ITV, Channel 4, The Food Network and The Discovery Channel; food has always been a passion clearly.
My favorite venue changes depending on my mood, but right now it’s the Design Museum! A new space packed with opportunity, my secret gem (at the moment!)
