Debbie Walker is our newest recruit to the CHS team and joins us as Business Development Manager.
We would like to welcome Debbie to the CHS team! She brings with her vast experience across the hospitality sector, from coach hire, to event furniture and catering equipment to advertising sales.
We have got together with Debbie to find out what she’s looking forward to achieving at CHS Group.
Q1. Tell us about your career to date?
I started my career in events at Inside Communications, selling advertising in their event magazine, directory and exhibition. This is where I found my passion for the events industry. I fully appreciate the amount of hard work for everyone involved in any event and the fantastic feeling when an event is successful.
More recently, I have worked for a coach hire company and some of the best business I have won has been from event companies and venues.
Q2. What projects will you be working on with CHS Group as our new Business Development Manager?
The most exciting thing for me, must be the CHS Birmingham taking place in 2020; It is set to transform the MICE industry, bringing new opportunities to the midlands. Currently, the Midlands is a very exciting place to be, with some international events set to take place, including the Commonwealth games in 2022.
Working with the CHS team, I will take great pleasure in being part of the journey where one of my clients has won business because they listened to my advice, exhibiting at a CHS show, sponsorship or from being recognised at CHS Awards.
Q3. What type of person are you?
I am definitely a people person, and practice the mantra of being kind, helpful and positive to all that I meet - you never know who you might come across and the role they may play in the future.
Q4. What is an interesting fact about yourself?
I love experiencing new things, from listening to music, taking the grandchildren to the seaside, or watching the latest shows and musicals with my husband Lee, at London West End.
