The Speakers and Their Talks
Founder & Director
Kate Plowright is the Founder & Director of Selling Savvy, a revolutionary way to increase sales revenue and conversion rates specifically within hotels, venues and the events industry. With experience in proactive sales, reactive sales and management of conversion strategies within hospitality, Selling Savvy was born from Kate seeing ineffective training methods in place. The Selling Savvy workshops are regular, lively and jam packed with procedures that actually work to increase sales.
During the Selling Savvy Summit Kate will be talking about maximising revenue through the sales process using customer experience. By WOWing your customers throughout that buying cycle you can create stark raving fans, and that is how you convert more and build a long-term business relationship
Founder & CEO
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.
Meetingsclub is a platform to share firsthand event experiences of hotels, venues and event suppliers through trusted and checked reviews.
Alison will be talking to us about the reason why service is so important in this current climate. The market is flooded will event-space offerings and service is the key to differentiate yourself from others. But how what does that service look like?
Founder & Business Owner
Caroline helps hospitality, leisure and tourism businesses find ways to improve their customer experience and create a customer focused culture. This results in loyal customers, guests, visitors and members who spend more, come back more often and recommend you to their friends, family and colleagues.
Off the back of Alison’s talk, Caroline will be giving us some fantastic ways of embedding that customer service culture within your teams. Once you know what you want your clients to experience with you, Caroline will focus on how to implement this successfully through your team.
