Meet our Conference & Events Sales Coordinator, Rachael Knowles. Rachael has worked in hospitality for many years and thoroughly enjoys the role. She has a wealth of experience behind her working with people, front of house and behind the scenes.
So let’s find out more about the person behind your next corporate event…
What do you love about your job?
Meeting and speaking to new and existing clients each day and building lasting relationships. I love reaching or exceeding our targets plus the excitement of busy days planning events means that every day is different!
Who or what are you inspired by?
The people and places around me. I love to watch the TV programmes about luxury 5*+ hotels in Dubai, US, all around the world and work to provide standards to that level, hoping that one day I might be there myself. Also, after working in Turkey I am inspired by meeting people from across the world and understand that everyone’s requirements are completely different. My family inspire me each and every day and I want to make them proud by working hard to achieve success!
What are your key skills?
I’m organised, I can multi-task and I am very sociable. I enjoy meeting new people and can talk for England although don’t worry – I do know when to stop!
Outside of work, what do you love?
I love the great outdoors and skiing. I was born and raised ‘up North’ so really look forward to travelling back home and seeing my family – in fact, travelling in general is something I love to do. I also love baking!
