meetingsclub was born out of the founder, Alison’s, love for the hospitality industry and her passion and belief that ‘service is the secret’ and makes all the difference to the success of a meeting or event.
“I launched meetingsclub with the aim through reviews, to help bookers and users of meeting, training, conference & event space, to find the perfect venue. Through meetingsclub I want to bring together venues and bookers who may never have known the other exists or through genuine reviews, show meetings & event organisers which venues are passionate about providing the best service possible. I am convinced through my years in the industry “service is the secret”.
My career began when I was 13 years old, I learnt that if you want something, you have to work hard to get it and I desperately wanted a pair of F.U.S jeans, they were the trendy thing to have but they were so expensive but I was determined to get a pair. The response at the end of the phone was “can you start now”! I arrived at Lambs Restaurant in the Cotswold’s to be greeted by more washing up than you could ever imagine, crockery, glasses, pots and pans with only two sinks and no dishwasher! 35 years later and I have still got the “bug” for the hospitality industry.
Prior to founding meetingsclub I have spent the last 35 yrs. gaining valuable experience in different roles working in restaurants, for large groups, privately owned hotels, 5* hotels, conference venues, a conference agency, running my own training consultancy, through to being Director of Business Development at the largest meetings & events provider – De Vere Venues, Principal Hayley and Four Pillars Group.
I hope my years of experience will be invaluable to making meetingsclub a success”
