Who we are
"Great things in business are never done by one person. They're done by a team of people".
Richard Money - Director
Achieve Your Goals
My experience within the Events & Hospitality industry spans over 26 years. During this time I've worked on both the hotel and agency side of the industry.
De Vere Hotels, Jurys Inn Group, The Belfry Hotel & Golf Resort and imago at Loughborough University have made up the hotel side of my experience.
Amy and I also lived and worked in Singapore, my role was with Q-Lifestyle & Bonvo Travel; on our return I continued working on the agency side, working for Zibrant. During this time I've worked on both the business development and account management side of business; working with corporate buyers directly as well as hotel booking agents and travel management companies. I have a firm understanding of some of the challenges and more importantly the opportunities for hoteliers and SME sized HBA's.
In my senior positions I've managed both operational and sales teams. Along this journey I've worked with some amazing people and great companies, Amy and I believe that our experience can make a difference and we look forward to meeting and working with many more like minded people; we'd welcome the opportunity to work with you and your business.
Amy Cawthan - Director
I have an extensive and successful 21 year career in sales and marketing. This has predominantly covered two industry sectors with 9 years in both the hotel & leisure industry and the fitness & leisure industry.
With a proven track record of not only hitting but exceeding targets my career has been successful and extensive; as a sales leader, my most recent roles focussed on sales team management, group performance and strategy.
My passion is in training and development where I have become an accomplished sales trainer, not only in the delivery but also from initial concept, content and design of the course.
In my senior roles I've travelled across the UK and Ireland; more recently I've worked in London and enjoyed the lovely daily commute on the east coast mainline! As well as this we lived and worked overseas in Singapore.
Richard and I trust that we have the capabilities and expertise to take your business to the next level. At VBS we're combining our insights and skills to transform your processes and strategies, and in turn, your company. We’re proud to help shape and improve how our clients structure their business.
