When starting my new role as Director of Sales at Sopwell House (AB Hotels) the key focus from day one was pro-active sales and re-connecting with our clients, especially the conference and events agencies within the UK. When meeting Emma Waycot from Vine Tree Connections for the first time there was a positive connection in terms of personality, knowledge and connections in the industry. Since recruiting her and Katrina they have been extremely pro-active and are out week on week visiting key agents and stimulating the awareness of Sopwell House. Now 6 months into our working partnership we are starting to reap the rewards. Their creativity to try and connect with the UK agencies is fantastic and they most certainly are part of the sales team at Sopwell House and work with us closely on a day to day basis.
