Thoughts from a new starter…
Being the latest addition to the team is never going to be easy, especially when you are new to an industry and in your first full time employment. Day to day I have been gaining a lot of knowledge and this has been aided greatly from the information imparted by visiting account managers.
It’s great working here at Brief2Event and Square Events, I am now in my 6th week and have already had the chance to meet four different account managers from hotels ranging from 5 star luxury at The Westbury to the chain of hotels such as De Vere, Barcelo and Thistle Guoman.
It has been really interesting to see the different relationships between the hotels with us here at Brief2Event. I have also been able to see the way in which the relationships between the hotels and our company have grown over time, getting to know them more on a personal level. Some of the hotels have brought in treats, such as chocolates, stationary for the office, and we were especially lucky as the Barcelo brought us lunch, made fresh from the hotel that morning.
As a representative of both Brief2Event and Square Events it has been interesting seeing how the venues can be used for Masonic Ladies Weekends, conferences, Christmas parties or trade / exhibition events. I would now have no problems recommending a conference venue in London or a Ladies Night venue in Oxford.
I have learnt a lot about the respective brands and their individual hotels and although laptop presentations are great I am looking forward to getting more chances to see more venues, if an opportunity arises.
I would like to thank the Hallmark Hotel and Spa at Bournemouth for the invitation for Brief2Event to visit the hotel for a show round and dinner. We spent the evening with our new account manager, where we discussed the past, present and future business Brief2Event and Square Events place within the group.
