BUSINEES DEVELOPMENT & EVENTS SALES
Throughout my career, I have orchestrated and executed a diverse range of successful events, from corporate conferences to high-profile product launches. My meticulous attention to detail, strong organisational skills, and ability to collaborate effectively have consistently resulted in seamless and memorable experiences for clients and attendees.
I believe in a personable and friendly approach to be able to connect and build relationships with the team, clients and partners.
I have been in the hospitality industry for over 20 years, starting my career as a chef Australia, before travelling to Japan and China to hone my skills. From there I moved to the United Kingdom, which is where I expanded into front of house operations. As a floor manager, combined with knife skills, more opportunities arose and I found opportunities working in all levels of dining. From country pubs to ‘Michelin Star’ restaurants and behind some of the busiest bars and entertainment venues in Australia.
Through my vast experience, having worked alongside some great talents within various venues and restaurants across the world, it has led me to becoming General Manager at Ichi Group.
