I joined The Grove because of its reputation as a 5 star hotel and I realised that it would be an attractive venue to sell for special events. Sales is challenging and fast paced. Combine that with meetings and events and my job can be pressurised and exciting as well as creative.

My job involves building relationships with clients and making people happy – one of the strangest requests I think I have had in my career is “can I enter the room on an elephant?” It is extremely rewarding and the people I work with make me feel like I’m part of one big family. Best piece of advice – show off your enthusiasm and passion. It’s catching.
