Carole Devonshire, Business Development
The first hotel I worked in was Holiday Inn Heathrow, great training programme. At the time the hotel had around 220 bedrooms and 10 conference rooms and I started there as Conference & Banqueting Sales Executive. Delayed flights were a team effort and great fun – obviously not for the delayed passengers! I have worked in a number of 4 and 5 star hotels and although I went out of the industry to live abroad for a few years and have my children I was lucky enough to go back into the industry in Bath.
Why Lucknam Park
A beautiful setting – so much to offer the guests.
What inspired you to work in hospitality
I worked for Braun UK for a few years organising product launches, meetings etc and loved dealing with the hotels. I like meeting people and no day is the same in hospitality!
When not at Lucknam Park Hotel, how do you spend your time
With my three children and friends.
Extremely cold white wine – normally Sauvignon Blanc.
