Are you watching it? I caved and managed to watch all 72 episodes within 3 weeks just so I could join my fellow colleagues in watching the finale with pizza and beers. With the final episode of the entire series coming to an epic end this Monday, it all seems very eerie with our current government situation don’t you think? Even last night I attended the AGM for the Westminster Venue Collection which we have been part of for at least 8 years (8 seasons in the show – see I’m finding a connection everywhere), anyways, I couldn’t help but wonder… are we all playing a role in our own Game of Thrones? Who’s venue (house) is doing better than who? And are we all trying to reach the ultimate goal of sitting on the throne of Westminster’s best venue? Just got me thinking that’s all! What Throne are you racing for?
Maternity leave is over, and we’ve teamed up to arm One Great George Street with not just one but two Business Development Managers – the ultimate dynamic duo! Give either of us a shout (call 02076652323 and ask for Jayna or Jonathan) if you’d like to host an amazing event with us at Westminster’s One Great George Street.
Ever met a potential new client and then shared a dance floor with them hours later – doing the floss and a little bit of twist? Well at the BNC Forum that’s exactly what happened. I’m back from my maternity break and my first week at work ended with a knees up at the BNC Forum. Honestly I felt like I was with a bunch of old friends; we connected on a level that wasn’t the usual ‘corporate norm’. The BNC allows you to meet new clients whom you can form long-lasting friendly relations with and that’s something very unique. Would you believe me if I said we’re now in a Whatsapp group sharing book recommendations? Well, it’s true and I honestly think that could only happen with a rare few like those I was lucky to meet with last week at the Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa.
A warm welcome to Jonathan Chohan who takes over from myself as Business Development Manager at One Great George Street while I am on maternity leave.
Jonathan is a born and raised North Londoner with 20 years’ experience in the hospitality industry working in hotels, venues and booking agents. When not at work, you’ll either find him watching Spurs play or working or racing his classic VW!
Check out this fantastic case study about Balfour Beatty’s Innovation 2050 launch organised by Venues & Events International and held at our award-winning Westminster venue, One Great George Street. It is a really good example of how to harness the latest technological innovations and integrate them seamlessly into your event. Claire Battles from Balfour Beatty certainly appreciated the outcome…
